By the lowest margin possible, the Wings pulled off a victory today.
They don't ask how, they ask how many. 1-0 over the Montreal Canadiens in a nice Monday afternoon matchup.
The win bumped the Wings out of last place(!) in the Atlantic Division as they improved to 44 points on the season.

Sitting last in the Atlantic division with a 18-19-6 record, the Detroit Red Wings issues are much more deep rooted than it may seem. It won't be a quick fix that solves the Red Wings woes, but rather, a philosophical change in their mentality that could do the trick. With that said, let's examine how the Red Wings are operating their franchise in an outdated method.

Happy Martin Luther King Day!
The Red Wings will get an early start to their week when they host the Canadiens this afternoon in a rare Monday matinee.

It's more of a 'Bottom to Top' but 'Top to Bottom' sounds better. This is a monthly feature where I'll do a dive into each team's underlying numbers to see if they match up with where they currently sit in the standings.
Three months down, three to go. We're halfway through the 2016-17 NHL season. At this point, we can stop talking about who's over and underachieving, because at this point enough time has passed to accurately determine who's actually good and who's actually bad.
With that in mind, I'm going to split the league into five categories: Legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, surefire playoff teams who aren't quite at the top of the class, basement teams who are fighting for last overall, teams in purgatory who aren't bad enough to tank but won't compete for a playoff spot, and middling teams who could occupy the last few spots depending on external factors.

We needed another look at the amazing coast-to-coast goal by Andreas Athanasiou. Truly a spectacular effort.
