The Detroit Red Wing’s season could be in jeopardy, but the team is still getting things done.
The Wings have the second-worst record in the NHL.
Their offense has been a disappointment, and their goaltending has been terrible.
But what if the Wings’ offense is actually a better reflection of their identity?
The Wings are coming off a 7-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Wings were leading 2-0 heading into the third period.
The Blue Jackets tied the game at 2-2 in the second period.
But the Wings went on a 5-on-3 power play and tied it again with 3:30 left.
They scored four goals in the first six minutes of the third.
The Blue Jackets scored three goals in a 2:31 span.
That gave the Wings four more unanswered power plays to tie the game.
The Red Wings have scored three power-play goals in two games.
The Ducks’ power play has failed to score in three of the last four games.
The Ducks have outscored their opponents 5-1 in those games.

The three power plays were all stopped by Ducks defenseman Niklas Kronwall.
