Wings Need Home Wins Starting Tomorrow

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

They face the Los Angeles Kings Saturday in the start of a season-long and eminently crucial five-game homestand. As they slide further down the pack of tightly grouped teams battling for playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, it’s time for the Red Wings to get their house in order.

Detroit is 6-10-7 at home, for a .413 winning percentage. This club hasn’t finished below .500 at home since 1985-86 (10-26-4).

“Look at the standings -- we’re in dogfight,” defenseman Kyle Quincey said. “If we want to be in the playoffs we’ve got to start winning, especially at home. We owe it to the fans. We feel we’re playing pretty solid and close to winning all these games. We need to stay the course and hopefully a few goals start going in.

“It’s a huge point of the season; we’re fighting for our lives right now.”

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
