No. 20:  Detroit Red Wings

Previous:  25th

Season Record:  13-12-4

The Wings are making it their business to take things to an extra frame recently.  In their last six games, they’ve gone to overtime four times.  They’ve come out even, winning two and losing two.  But hey, that’s good for six points, eh?!

Their most recent OT was a loss to the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 on Sunday night.  They take on the Arizona Coyotes coming up tonight.  Perhaps they can get lucky and win one in regulation.
