Wrap Up

Since the Red Wings Stanley Cup win over the Flyers in 1997 they have only won two games in their last 18 against the Flyers in Philadelphia, one of those two wins came last season in a 6-3 win.

After yesterday's slate of games, and the Red Wings loss to the Islanders, the Red Wings dropped to six points behind the Penguins for the final playoff spot. It is looking likely the Red Wings playoff chase has fallen apart and they will not make it, but it was a fun two weeks when they held a playoff spot and were hanging around. Now it will be time to assess what this team needs in the offseason to compete with teams and make it back to the playoffs.
