It has been nine days since the Red Wings last game but they get back to work tonight in Tampa Bay and it is arguably the Red Wings’ biggest game of the season. They want to get their post All-Star stretch off to a hot start, but it comes against one of the NHL’s hottest teams and a team that they are tied with in the standings. Detroit is looking to push their playoff streak to 25 seasons, but as of today, only one point separates them from second place in the Atlantic and out of the playoffs.

Monday night’s game vs. the New York Islanders will be the Red Wings’ final game before the All Star break, where they’ll get a much needed break. Tonight’s contest will be a battle between a tired team and a rested team. Unfortunately that tired team is the Red Wings, who will be playing their third game in four nights. Because of the blizzard that hit New York, the Islanders had their last game postponed and they come in having only played one game in the last week.

Less than 24 hours after the Red Wings dismantled the Sabres in the third period to win 3-0, they are back in Detroit to take on the Anaheim Ducks.
Anaheim was supposed to be playing in the second game of a back-to-back as well, but their game on Friday was cancelled due to a winter storm in Washington D.C.

Wednesday was tough huh? Tomas Tatar being a late scratch, Brian Elliott standing on his head and no points for the boys. The Red Wings are 0-1-1 since I started writing these Game Days, so if we can’t get a win in Buffalo tonight, you guys are going to be calling for my head!

The Red Wings are 1-0-1 since the launch of WingsNation and despite Sunday’s loss, Detroit had a lot to like about their game. Unfortunately, it was an all to familiar shootout finish. Since the 2012-13 season, the Red Wings are 12-27 (30.7 W%) in the shootout. Thank god for 3-on-3 overtime—which we are 7-5 in by the way. How familiar have we become with one goal games this season? Well, of Detroit’s first 45 games, 30 have been decided by a single goal. Here’s the good news. The Wings are a whopping 18-4-8 in such games.
