Red Wings’ lousy weekend ends with 3-0 loss to Lightning

Things weren’t exactly going swimmingly for the Detroit Red Wings coming into this weekend, but their fortunes seemed to sink even lower over the past two days. A 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday just seemed to wrap everything up.

To review:

Yup, that’s some pretty miserable stuff.

With this win, the Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves with 41 standings points (19-11-3 in 33 games played), leaving them two ahead of the Washington Capitals (39 points in 33 games) and the Red Wings (39 points in 35 games). The Bolts aren’t lighting up the world as Steven Stamkos rehabs, yet they’re finding a way to win in patches.

Meanwhile, the Red Wings continue to search for answers … and maybe hope for their luck to turn around.

    Just like last season, half the team is injured. Starting goalie, captain, franzen, datsyuk just got back, helm and weiss our second and third line centers…its a mess

    The GM has been makeing poor choices for a while now. Weiss, Burt, Cleary and others. Sometime you need to let these older/ hurting prone guys go. The Wings keep going back to them and it just not working, and the shoot out, can’t score and Howard can’t stop a basketball in them.
