Will the Red Wings be able to continue the beloved playoff streak?
It now sits at 21 straight seasons—the best in team history, fifth-best all-time and the longest current streak in the league.
The team has been up and down this season, however. A five-game losing streak gave way to a weekend where the Red Wings outscored their opponents 11-3.
Still, it is hard to believe that this team will not make the playoffs.
The Red Wings have suffered through an incredible amount of injuries. Despite this, they are still in the playoff mix.
When their healthy core players return to the team, they should be able to make yet another postseason appearance to keep the streak alive.
In Detroit, just making the playoffs is usually not enough, but with this team and their current struggles, that may be all that can be expected this year.
