Welcome to Wings Weekly: a regular column giving you a quick recap of the week that was and the week that will be for the 11-time Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings.

Weekly Results (2-1-0):

March 8 vs Chicago (2nd Worst team in NHL): 4-3 Win

Detroit snaps a six-game losing streak by barely beating a horrible Chicago team. Awesome. Forwards Lucas Raymond and Dylan Larkin netted goals, and Dominik Kubalik scored the game winner against his former team with four minutes remaining in the third period.

March 11 @ Boston (Best team in NHL): 3-2 Loss

The Red Wings opened the game swinging, hurling two goals past Vezina trophy frontrunner Linus Ullmark in the first five minutes of the game. Boston scored twice in the second period and secured the go-ahead goal with six minutes left in the third. Mo Seider and Robert Hagg were the Wings’s two best players in the loss.

March 12 vs Boston (Best team in NHL): 5-3 Win

The Wings performed masterfully in Tyler Bertuzzi’s return to Little Caesars Arena. Alex Chiasson got his third point in four games with the Wings with a power play goal and the Red Wings took a spirited affair 5-3 after taking a 4-0 lead with four minutes to go in the second period
