When you take a look at the Red Wings 9-7-3 season so far, there are many things that can be said.
The first and most obvious thing is the injuries that have robbed the team of speed, some scoring and a consistent defense.
One can also look to the sub par defense which has, at points, left Jimmy Howard left to cover the team's lapses.
Goaltending has also been a concern with Howard playing in 17 out of 19 games.
Add in a inconsistent power play and the Red Wings have dealt with a number of problems during this season.
Not all is lost this season. There are four things in particular that the team can do to change their fortune for the remaining games.
