Detroit — That makes it an even 10 now for the Red Wings.
Ten consecutive losses — the first two in overtime, the last eight in regulation time — with the Wings reaching that dubious achievement thanks to a 4-1 loss Monday to the New York Islanders.
“It’s been a tough stretch,” forward Darren Helm said. “It’s been one of the toughest years I’ve been a part of.”
If it seems like losing is the only thing the Wings do these days, or thus far this season, you’re not far off.
The 10-game winless streak surpasses an eight- and four-game losing streak they had earlier this season, sandwiched around a victory over Edmonton.
