In Red Wings Land
Man, the last few weeks have been such mixed emotions for me.
On one hand, I’m really happy to see the players still working hard and trying to win. On the other hand, the Red Wings could be solidly in 30th place (or even within striking distance of 31st) had they not beaten the Golden Knights and Sharks. Thankfully, the Devils, Senators and Kings have all been winning some games too.
It’s going to be such an interesting final six games to determine the final NHL draft lottery percentages for the Wings.
- Tonight, March 28 at Sabres
- Tomorrow, March 29 vs Devils
- Sunday, March 31 vs Bruins
- Tuesday, April 2 vs Penguins
- Thursday, April 4 at Penguins
- Saturday, April 6 vs Sabres
Three very winnable games and three very losable games. The loser of tomorrow’s game against New Jersey will probably determine who finishes below who in the standings. And don’t sleep on Buffalo. They've done some real stealth tanking recently.
Least points accrued since the trade deadline. Sabres proving that experience really is huge this time of year. Can't discount the importance of having been there before. pic.twitter.com/K9wdBDJd3K— Dimitri Filipovic (@DimFilipovic) March 27, 2019
