Quick Hits: The How Bad are the Red Wings Edition
In Red Wings Land
Detroit Red Wings winless streak at eight after latest no-show vs. Flyers, 6-1 | Freep
The Flyers scored in the last minute of the first period, the last minute of the second period, and then destroyed the Wings with two goals in the first minute the third period Friday at Wells Fargo Center. It has become a tired tale for the Wings as they were bulldozed by another team, falling 6-1 and stretching their losing streak to 0-6-2.
The Wings’ goal differential ballooned to minus-50, more than doubling the next worst team.
It’s the 13th time in 28 games the Wings (7-18-3) have allowed at least five goals. They were beaten 6-0 Wednesday by the Leafs.
Just how bad is this Red Wings team?
I can't believe that this is actually true, but that's the 13th time in 28 games the Wings have given up 5 or more goals.— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) November 29, 2019
They have legitimately given up 5 or more goals in 46% of their games
Ok by my quick back of the napkin math, this year's Wings would have the 23rd worst era-adjusted goals against average and the worst mark in franchise history by 0.1 goals against per game— Prashanth Iyer (@iyer_prashanth) November 30, 2019

I’m glad the “Storm/Rain” jersey isn’t considered the worst. I loved those jerseys back in the day as a kid.
