The Detroit Red Wings were looking good after winning at Tampa Bay on Dec. 8, extending a promising start to the season.
They have lost six in a row since (0-4-2) and are searching for solutions as they face the Lightning again Wednesday at Little Caesars Arena (7 p.m., Bally Sports Detroit).
“Could we be better than 0-4-2? Probably, but there’s some stretches in there we’re doing some pretty good things. It’s not complete,” coach Derek Lalonde said. “The big picture – did we overachieve a little bit in that start? Maybe. But I think we’re underachieving a little bit with this 0-4-2 stretch. We’re better than that and can be better than that.”
Lalonde said it’s important they judge themselves on performance, not results, and their play hasn’t been all bad.
