from Bruce MacLeod of Red Wings Corner,
Victory after victory after victory, there’s still one team that the Detroit Red Wings cannot put behind them in the points race.
The Red Wings won their 40th game of the season, Saturday, coming in just their 54th outing. Their rate of success is phenomenal and has them 17 points ahead of the second-best team in the Western Conference (through Saturday) and 16 points ahead of the second-best team overall. That’s tremendous separation when you consider that the deviation between any two teams that are second through 30th in the standings is two points except for a four-point gap between the 28th and 29th place teams.
