NHL Lottery Talk For The Wings

03/31/2019 at 1:21pm EDT

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings will be seeking their fifth consecutive victory tonight when they face the Boston Bruins at Little Caesars Arena (7:30, NBC Sports Network exclusive).

A Red Wings victory and a regulation loss by the Sabres against Columbus tonight would tie Detroit with Buffalo for 27th overall.

The final week of the regular season will determine the odds for the April 9 NHL Draft Lottery. The Red Wings (30-38-10, 70 points) are two points behind the Sabres and three points back of the New York Rangers.

Detroit could finish as high as 26th, resulting in a 7.5 percent chance of winning the lottery. At No. 27, the odds are 8.5 percent, followed by 9.5 percent (28th), 11.5 percent (29th), 13.5 percent (30th) and 18.5 percent (31st).

If the Red Wings gain at least one more point this season, they will not finish last overall.

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.
