Red Wings enjoying the advantages of an extended bye break

Detroit — The Red Wings are basically shut down, off work, out of the office, for a week.

After Wednesday’s loss in Minnesota, they dispersed to destinations all over (mainly warm), with Tyler Bertuzzi the lone Wings’ player headed to St. Louis for the All-Star Game.

With their bye week tacked on to the end of the All-Star break, the Wings don’t gather for practice again until Thursday, when they’ll hit the ice at Madison Square Garden.

This is the second year the NHL has attached the bye week to the All-Star break — one half going before the break, the other half afterward.
