The futility of the 2019-20 Detroit Red Wings season just won’t stop.
The Pittsburgh Penguins added to their misery on Saturday night with a 5-3 victory at Little Caesars Arena, sending the Red Wings to their 11th consecutive defeat. It’s been nearly a full month since they last won a game (November 12 at Anaheim). Their record is a ghastly 7-21-3 – easily the worst out of all 31 NHL teams.
Jake Guentzel, Evgeni Malkin, Chad Ruhwedel, John Marino, and Dominik Kahun all scored for the Penguins (17-9-4).
Newly acquired forward Robby Fabbri stayed hot, scoring his seventh goal of the year and sixth with Detroit with a power play tally in the second period. Filip Hronek added his sixth of the year in the third period, while Dylan Larkin added a late power play goal to cut Pittsburgh’s lead to one.
