by Arthur J. Regner @arthurjregner / DetroitRedWings.com

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.
