The Red Wings had a late-game surge on Tuesday, but they were unable to hold the Lightning off and now sit at .500 for the season (8-8-1).
Even with Steven Stamkos only playing two minutes, the Red Wings couldn’t climb out of an early hole and now they’re in danger of losing a third straight game. The Red Wings find themselves back on the road for one-game in Washington, before returning to Joe Louis Arena on Sunday.

We’re one-fifth of the way through the 2016-17 season already and things aren’t looking good for the Red Wings. They sit at 8-7-1 (17 points), which is good for fifth in the Atlantic Division and puts them two points out of the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Could this be the start to another long winning streak for the Red Wings? Probably not, but it’s good to have hope! When you look at the Red Wings’ upcoming schedule, it seems more likely that another losing streak is coming. Detroit will be in tough tonight against the unbeatable Carey Price and follow that up with games against Tampa Bay and Washington.

Well, I totally forgot to write this GameDay preview this morning, my apologies, so let’s take a quick look at the Red Wings game tonight.
Detroit is coming off of a huge shootout win in Philadelphia and they have a great chance to make it two in a row with the Canucks in town. The Red Wings have been a much better team on home ice. They come in averaging 2.88 goals for and 2.38 goals against in eight games at Joe Louis Arena, while the Canucks have struggled on the road and all together really. Vancouver is averaging 2.14 goals for and 3.43 goals against in their seven road games.

So much for that six-game winning streak. The Red Wings have been streaky, to say the least. They started the year with two bad losses, ripped off six straight wins and have now lost five straight. Ugly.
Less than a week after extending their losing streak in Philadelphia to 12, the Red Wings are back in Philly to try and snap a streak that dates back to 1996-97. The Red Wings almost had it in the bag last Wednesday, but a late collapse ended in an overtime loss.
