(AP) — Less than a week into the season, the Detroit Red Wings have already felt the effects from the retirements of two of the franchise’s most successful players.

Thin on defensemen and scoreless on the power play, the Red Wings look to bounce back from their latest defeat by trying to continue their home success against the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.

Tomas Holmstrom played all 15 of his NHL seasons in Detroit, and along with seven-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom was a staple on the Red Wings’ power-play unit. Lidstrom often helped set up Holmstrom, who positioned himself in front of the net to score 141 of his 289 career goals – including the playoffs – on the man advantage. All but one of Holmstrom’s 11 goals last season came on the power-play.
