Dropping their last six games, the Red Wings came into tonights contest in desperate need of a win. Not for the two points but for the confidence. Against one of the league’s best teams in the Nashville Predators they found a way, winning 4-3 in overtime.
The Detroit Red Wings are on the verge of tying their longest losing streak of the season. Having dropped their last six games, a seventh loss tonight would be an unwelcome call back to the start of their season. That shaky start didn’t sink them, but this mid-season losing streak surely will.
