"One of the things Holmstrom provides -- everyone talks about his net-presence -- but he gets the puck back for you. So we’re one and done and we’re working on our breakouts right now." --Mike BabcockThat quote comes to us via Khan(!). Holmstrom, who has missed the past four games with a strained groin - will not be playing again tonight against the Dallas Stars. Detroit's power play has been abysmal as of late...scoring just once in their last nineteen attempts. The powerless play plague has been lingering around Detroit for the past seven games...which also means that Detroit is only averaging about 2.71 powerplays per game...which seems a little low to me.Holmstrom or not, scoring one out of twenty is NOT acceptable.Lots more after the jump.
Also missing from the lineup tonight will be The Namesake, Darren Helm. Helm will be looking to get back into the lineup for the annual Father's Trip...which will be an old Norris Division tour stopping in Toronto a...

As the Detroit Red Wings embark upon a 4-game road trip (albeit one that will involve a trip back to Detroit to practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) with a game against the Dallas Stars tonight (8 PM EST, FSD/Vers…I mean the NBC Sports Network outside Michigan/WXYT), they face something of a puzzling opponent. While the Wings hope to better their 49 points and climb to within...
Justin Abdelkader was knocked from Saturday's game by an illegal hit to the head, but returned to score in the Wings' 3-0 win against St. Louis.
