from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
There are four weeks left to this miserable Red Wings’ season.
The end can’t come soon enough, to be sure, for players, coaches, front office, and fans alike. The two losses in Florida over the weekend, especially Sunday’s 6-1 loss to the Panthers, put an exclamation point, as it were, to this most recent slide.
The Wings’ have lost 10 of their last 11 games, and too many of them are becoming one-sided, if not on the scoreboard, then on the ice.
There was a definite feeling in the Wings’ room after Sunday’s game that things have to change for this final stretch....
Frans Nielsen, another veteran forward who seen the highs and lows in hockey, was almost speechless after Sunday’s loss.
“Right now, we’re going backward,” Nielsen said. “We’re a step behind everywhere. It’s just not OK. It’s been a lot of times now this year.”
