The Detroit Red Wings are holding a coveted wild-card spot with 10 games remaining on the schedule.

They continue to battle through a multitude of injuries thanks to impressive contributions from some breakout stars and a few prospects.

Detroit has gone 3-1-1 in its last five games and looking to get into a groove at the right time. Its current standing comes despite some poor performances and disappointing circumstances.

With Sunday’s overtime loss to Minnesota, the Wings set a club record with 351 man-games lost due to injury. Detroit has endured, continuing to fight for a 23rd consecutive playoff appearance.

If it can manage to secure a spot, it will be an incredible achievement that could earn head coach Mike Babcock consideration for the Jack Adams Award.

These frustrations have cost the Red Wings valuable points and positioning in the standings, and one might wonder where they’d be otherwise.

These are five of the biggest letdowns of Detroit’s 2013-14 season so far.
