Detroit Red Wings – 3rd Atlantic Division

The Detroit Red Wings struggled to finish during the past week going 1-1-2. A 4-3 shootout loss to Tampa Bay capped off a loss hat-trick after losing in regulation to the Ottawa Senators 3-1 and in overtime to the New York Rangers 4-3. Their lone win came at the expense of the New Jersey Devils by a score of 4-2.

Pavel Datsyuk missed the Wings last two games with a groin injury and failed to record a point in the other two contests. Johan Franzen led the Wings offensively with two goals and three assists over the four games.

While they only recorded one win, the Wings still sit one point up on Boston for 3rd in the Atlantic.
