Feb 1: An hour delay to lionize Red Kelly, then the Wings play a strong 1st period against the Leafs, but no scoring either way.

These ceremonies need to be before the scheduled game time.

I still expect the Leafs to win this game, but they've looked horrible the first 34 minutes. Wings lead 1-0, outshooting Toronto 16-8.

Always nice to beat the Leafs! In regulation would have been better, but a Leafs goal late with their net empty forced the Wings to win it in OT.

Larkin went to the dressing room in OT with what could be tear in the side.

That Larkin injury did not look good at all. Looked like a lat muscle, but he was grabbing further down on his hip when he got to the bench, so who knows. Hopefully it looked worse than it is, but it's concerning for sure.

Blashill says Larkin out 1-2 weeks with a strained oblique. That's not too bad.

Taken directly from the HF Boards:

"McIsaac is on fire right now... 7 Game Point Streak... 2 Goals 13 Assists 15 Points... Now has 42 Points in 35 Games"

 

11 Goals and 31 assists for Jared this season, much improved over last year's 9 goals/38 assists in 65 games!

Howard=Horrible on the 1st goal, and is there any other player in the NHL today who gets free for more breakaways but scores on fewer of them than Athanasiou? He's the ultimate glass-half-empty/glass-half-full hockey player.🙄

Larkin scored his 23rd goal of the year  to match the career high from his rookie season.

now they trail 2--0 late in the 1st at Chicago. The beatings go on.

Abdelkader has 1 point since January 1st. He averages 16 min of ice time per game which is approximately 6th for forwards on the team.

The Wings look like crap, the shots are close but overall the Hawks seem to be having their way in the Wings zone.

5-2 loss...New Jersey wins in regulation so I believe that sinks the Wings to #2 in the lottery mix.

This is the part of the season that's a grind for fans of the bad team. The Wings seem to be playing very uninspired hockey right now.

And yes, Kdog, you're right, the Wings are now #30/#2.

The NBA equalized the odds for the top 3 worst  teams to win the lottery. The NHL didn't so there is more incentive to keep it rolling. Play the vets, keep the culture intact, and lose.
