from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,
Plenty of numbers tell the story of the Detroit Red Wings in their first 22 games. A .614 winning percentage. The NHL’s 11th best record. Winning records at home (7-3-3) and away (4-3-2). A positive goal-differential. A 20.5% power play.
The numbers add up to an improved Detroit Red Wings team. Here is a more complete Red Wings by the numbers:
- Number of times the Red Wings have been shutout this season in the first 22 games. They were blanked eight times last season.
- Number of times the coach Derek Lalonde’s team has have only scored one goal this season. They scored three or more goals in 14 of 22 games this season (63.6%).
