The Detroit Red Wings (17-8-9) haven’t won a game since December 7. The dramatic shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche Sunday night marks the Red Wings sixth straight defeat in the past two weeks. This absurd skid really came out of nowhere as the Wings had won nine out of their previous eleven games before collapsing.
In case you missed it.
Not a happy time in Hockeytown right...
DETROIT -- The Red Wings would like an early Christmas present of a few more goals in the two games before the holiday.
In their last five games, in which they have gone 0-2-3, the Wings have scored just five goals.

He reunited the Euro Twins, Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk, putting them on a line with...
Tis’ the season to be jolly… Well, unless you’re a Detroit Red Wings’ fan.

Seems like Christmas came a bit early this year for these goalies.
Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek must’ve been on the nice list this year. Their helmets are pretty awesome and very detailed.
If you’re like us, you’re wondering if these will be available for fans to buy. They’re super cool!

This will blow your mind. These two goals from the Red Wings occurred 11 years apart, but are identical even down to the advertising on the boards.
The GIF on the left is Pavel Datsyuk scoring on Roberto Luongo 11 years ago. The GIF on the right is Gustav Nyquist scoring the exact same goal on Luongo 11 years later. It’s amazing how similar these two shots are, even down to the...
The game started off on a scary note for the Canadians. Just four minutes in, Detroit Red Wings prospect Joe Hicketts, who looked strong in limited minutes on Saturday night, got hit from behind by Ryerson star Domenic Alberga. The hit didn’t look malicious due to the fact that Hicketts had already lost his footing, but Alberga would sit off for boarding. Fortunately for Canada...

Red Wings young gun Tomas Tatar has scored some rather impressive goals in his brief NHL career, but no score is bigger than Tatar’s girlfriend Lucia Slaninkova. This chick knows where the camera is and does solid work when she spots it.

Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader is off to the best offensive start of his career. The 27-year-old left-wing had seven goals and eight assists through 24 games before injuring his shoulder last week during a contest against the New Jersey Devils.

It wasn’t all good for the Red Wings today during their 5-3 win over the Canucks.
During the second period, forward Justin Abdelkader suffered a should injury after a big hit from Vancouver’s Luca Sbis.
Babcock said Abdelkader hurt his shoulder. Not significant. Day to day.
