Three Reasons The Red Wings Losing Streak Isn’t As Bad As It Seems

By Pat Caputo

1. Five of those losses were in overtime or a shootout, meaning the Red Wings have gotten five of 12 possible points in those games. It’s actually been better than going 2-4 in regulation time in those six games.

2. The Red Wings haven’t played poor hockey. They had just one real stinker in the losses, a 6-1 defeat to Ottawa. The rest of those games could have gone either way, obviously.

3. There is the matter of the in-between. The Red Wings won three of four games on their Western Canada road trip right in the middle of their current home losing streak.
