The Detroit Red Wings Losing Streak Hits Six

10/24/2019 at 8:36am EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News (the only Detroit beat writer in Ottawa),

If not completely off the rails, there’s maybe one wheel, possibly two, going dangerously off-kilter.

The Red Wings are on a lengthy losing streak early in the season, and it’s showing no signs of ending.

You’d think Wednesday’s game in Ottawa would be a perfect tonic, with the Senators coming into the game with the NHL’s worst record (1-6-1).

But you’d be wrong.

The Wings looked like the weaker team most of the evening, and lost 5-2.

31. Detroit Red Wings

Steve Yzerman is wisely taking a patient approach in Detroit, but the tone of the rebuild will kick into gear when half of his top six — Anthony Mantha, Andreas Athanasiou and Tyler Bertuzzi — require significant raises.

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.
