Well, it's the end of this always-daunting West Coast Cali trip... before games against the Blackhawks, Stars, and Penguins.
If there's such thing as a must-win at this point in the season, this could be it. The Wings are rapidly seeing themselves fall out of the playoff picture and their recent stretch of performances are suggesting this may be the year we see the evergreen playoff streak finally come to a close. Without further ado, here are your lineups for tonight's game.

After 25 years of making the playoffs, the Wings may be faced with one of the weirdest questions they've had to ask in a long time: could they possibly finish last? Well, it's certainly more plausible than you think.

Win or lose, it's always important that you don't take hockey too seriously.
You're never as good as you think you are when you win, and you're never as bad as you think you are when you lose.
Well, at least that's probably what the Red Wings could be thinking tonight.
Somehow, some way, the Wings pulled off a 4-0 road win over the LA Kings.

Well… we’re five days into 2017 and it’s already not going well for the Red Wings. After averaging 3.25 goals per game in their previous four games, things were starting to look up, until they were shutout last night in Anaheim. The power play went 0-for-3 again as it continues to be absolutely dreadful. Their power play sits at 11.4 percent right now, which if the season ended today would be the third worst power play percentage in the last decade—only better than the 2006-07 Blackhawks (11.3%) and the 2013-14 Panthers (10.0%).
