How Bad Have The Wings Been?

11/03/2019 at 5:35pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Wings have won one (1-9-1) of their last 11 games — and during that span have been outscored 46-19.

That gruesome 11-game stretch has come after the Wings began the season 3-1-0 and offered glimpses of optimism of what this season could be.

Now, nobody likely expected a playoff season. Most analysts and fans understood the roster the Wings have. But then again, nobody might have expected something like this season has been thus far....

There are so many things going wrong with the Wings, but two stood out against the Panthers that also have been issues during the losing streak.

First, the special teams aren’t doing anything to help achieve victories. They’re contributing to the litany of losses.

In Sunday’s NHL statistics, the Wings' power play ranked 25th (14.0 percent) while the penalty kill was 28th (70.2 percent). Neither number is going to help secure victories.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
