The Wings found themselves getting some skaters back in the lineup for this friday evening home matchup. Marchenko made his return to the point but more importantly Andreas Athanasiou was set to make his return. It seemed important to start this 5-game homestand on a positive note. A lot of this home stretch faces off against western conference teams, which detroit fares surprisingly well against, but Columbus had been hot fire this year and Detroit has struggled vs the east. Tonight sadly, was not the Wings night.

The Red Wings head into tonight's matchup at 13-11-3. Not the world's most desirable record, but far from disastrous. However, they're currently sitting four points out from a playoff spot in a tough Eastern Conference and the roster's been rife with questionable lineup decisions and lacklustre performances. So in this up-and-down Wings season, we turned to our staff to try to find this season's MVP so far.

Before I get into anything hockey related, I would like to extend my condolences to Red Wings' play-by-play announcer Ken Daniels and his family, who lost their 23-year-old son on Thursday.
After a disastrous first period in Winnipeg, the Red Wings settled in and battled back for a 4-3 shootout win before returning to Detroit.

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article.
Today's post is all about protectin' ya neck, being with the times and Vegas still has some work to do.
