Detroit Red Wings searching for answers after recent struggles

Let the finger pointing begin. The Detroit Red Wings (37-18-11) have lost three out of its last four games. For any other NHL team this would be a minor hiccup, but things tend to get blown out of proportion when it concerns the Red Wings and a slump like this coming in mid-March. To be fair, this is arguably the worst the Wings have looked since they dropped six straight games back...

Notes: Abdelkader to return to Wings' lineup Tuesday

DETROIT -- Before he was injured, Red Wings' forward Justin Abdelkader was perhaps the team's best forward, certainly he was Detroit's most versatile.
