DETROIT -- If other teams are not careful on their power play, the Red Wings could be headed toward their net for a shorthanded chance.

After Trevor Daley scored the game-winning goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs while shorthanded Friday night, the Wings tied the San Jose Sharks and Florida Panthers for the league lead with six shorties.

DETROIT- Depending on the outcome of their Thursday night game at Minnesota, the Toronto Maple Leafs will either be on a two-game losing streak or winners of seven of their last 10 games when they face the Red Wings Friday night at Little Caesars Arena.

DETROIT -- Although the weather has Detroit looking a lot like Christmas, it feels more like Groundhog Day for the Red Wings.

Notes: Red Wings reaching a critical stage of their schedule

First game of four against Boston already has huge playoff implications

by Arthur J. Regner @arthurjregner /

DETROIT -- At first glance a four-point gap between the Red Wings and the Bruins in the Atlantic Division standings doesn't appear to be an insurmountable obstacle to overcome, especially since it's only mid-December.

However, the Bruins have played the fewest games in the NHL at 27 while the Wings have played 30. Detroit is 1-5-4 in its last 10 and Boston is 8-2 and oh, by the way, Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is playing at his standard world-class level.

DETROIT -- Outside perception may be that the Red Wings are on the verge of splintering as their frustration mounts because they cannot figure out how to turn around their recent swoon.

Detroit has gone 1-5-4 in its last 10 games and its home record stands at a mystifying 5-6-5, which ranks 24th out of 31 NHL teams.
