Detroit Red Wings
That’s five straight losses capped by a shutout on Saturday. Detroit Red Wings just simply could not catch a break. With just 12 wins in already 53 games played, their chances of advancing are now close to being impossible. Their confidence certainly took a hit after suffering their third scoreless outing in eight games, not to mention that their current losing skid is just one of the several stretches where they registered a string of defeats in a row.
Players to watch: Tyler Bertuzzi (GP 53, G 17, A 19, PTS 36), Dylan Larkin (GP 53, G 13, A 24, PTS 37), Filip Hronek (GP 51, G 9, A 17, PTS 26).
The Flyers went on a field day on Saturday when they blasted off the Colorado Avalanche, 6-3, in what might be one of their best performances of the season. The team logged in 6-2-2 in their last ten in which they mustered 26 goals during a 5-1-1 stretch.
The year 2020 is off to a scorching start for Sean Couturier who just recorded his third three-point performance of the new year in the win against Colorado. The 27-year-old two-way center now leads the club in points with 46 in total built around 13 goals and 33 assists.
Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 49, G 17, A 27, PTS 44), Sean Couturier (GP 52, G 13, A 33, PTS 46), Jakub Voracek (GP 52, G 11, A 29, PTS 40).
