Detroit Red Wings

No matter which way you cut it, the start of the 2019-20 season has been tough for the Detroit Red Wings. They have already seen an eight-game losing streak, a plethora of blowout losses, and several players struggle out of the gate.

Red Wings Prospects

Welcome to the Weekly Prospect Report. Here, we’ll take a look at some key names over the past week that are a big part of the next wave of NHL stars. This column will dive into both NHL-affiliated and draft-eligible prospects, focusing mainly on those outside the NHL. Related: Weekly Prospect Report: Caufield, Sorokin, Lundell & More NHL-Affiliated Prospects Red Wings' Prospect Seider Starting to Settle into North American Game One of the most surprising picks from the 2019 NHL Draft was the Detroit Red Wings selecting German defender Moritz Seider sixth overall. It's also very possible that it will end up being one of the best picks from the draft. Moritz Seider, Grand Rapids Griffins (Jenae Anderson / The Hockey Writers) After collecting just one assist in his first seven AHL games with the Grand Rapids Griffins, Seider started to settle in, putting together a five-game point streak with six assists. That brings his stat line to seven assists in 14...

Red Wings Goaltending

In today's goalie news, we'll wish a happy birthday to a legend of the past, take a look at Robin Lehner's impressive start, and dig into the weekly review. Lehner Goes the Distance The Chicago Blackhawks made the decision to bring Lehner in as a free agent this summer, likely due to uncertainty about Corey Crawford's health. While it's an expensive tandem (the two are owed a combined $11 million this season), when healthy, it's one of the better one-two punches in the league. And on Sunday, Lehner was at the absolute top of his game. Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Robin Lehner (Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports) The Blackhawks were locked in a nailbiter with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and Lehner was the difference between victory and defeat. He made 53 saves on 57 shots, including eight of 10 on the power play, and 10 against elite goal scorer Auston Matthews. The Blackhawks scored five goals on 34 shots, and thanks to Lehner, it was enough for the victory. The goalie had...

DETROIT — Anthony Mantha scored with 30.9 seconds left to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 comeback victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday night. Mantha broke in alone off the right wing after taking a pass off the boards from Robby Fabbri, then beat goalie Malcolm Subban with a wrist shot from the right circle. Mantha has 11 goals this season. Andreas Athanasiou and defenceman Madison Bowey also scored and Jonathan Bernier made 17 saves to help the Red Wings win their second straight games. Jonathan Marchessault and Max Pacioretty scored for Vegas and Subban stopped 16 shots. The Golden Knights are 1-2-3 in their last six.

Pacioretty gave Vegas a 2-1 lead 9:04 into the second period with a wrist shot from the top of the right circle. It was his sixth goal. It was...
