The Detroit Red Wings will not have popular captain and star defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom this season, but they still have enough veterans to make a run for the playoffs, their 21st in a row.

The team everybody hates in the NHL, still has Daniel Cleary, Pavel Datsyuk, Jordin Tootoo, Mikael Samuelsson, Henrik Zetterberg, Todd Bertuzzi, Valtteri Filppula, Niklas Kronwall and Johan Franzen. This team is still dangerous.

Since the start of the 1997-98 season, the Detroit Red Wings have won more games, 791, than any other team in the National Hockey League. Detroit’s 683 regular season wins and the 107 playoff victories are both tops in the NHL over that time span.

Red Wings Milestones:

* Kronwall is 1 goal to 50 for his career

* Samuelsson is 2 goals to 150

* Tootoo is 4 goals to 50

* Kyle Quincey needs 5 points to 100

* Samuelsson needs 6 assists to 200

* Bertuzzi needs 7 games played to 1,100

* Jimmy Howard needs 7 games played to 200

*Datsyuk is 3 goals behind Tomas Holmstrom (243) for 11th-most in team history

* Datsyuk is 10 points behind Ted Lindsey (728) for 7th-most in team history

* Kronwall is 1 goal behind Eddie Ware (50) for 8th-most in team history amongst defenseman

* Zetterberg is 9 points behind Brendan Shanahan (633) for 9th-most in team history

* Zetterberg is 12 goals behind Nicklas Lidstrom (264) for 9th-most in team history

* Jimmy Howard is 2 wins behind Manny Legace (112) for 8th-most in team history among goaltenders

Red Wings Notes:

* Detroit is 76-4-4 the past 84 times it has scored 4+ goals in a game

* Detroit finished the 2011-12 season with the most home wins (31) in the NHL, but ranked in a tie for 16th with 17 road wins




Wisniewski’s return; young kids Johansen, Moore help Jackets get first win

The Columbus Blue Jackets three weeks of hell, in the words of head coach Scott Arniel ended Tuesday night with a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Jackets outplayed the veteran Wings and made them chase the puck all night which resulted in the home team getting seven power plays.

It was a night of firsts for Columbus.

James Wisniewski made his Blue Jackets debut after serving an eight-game suspension; rookie Ryan Johansen scored his first NHL goal and added an assist; rookie John Moore scored his first NHL goal and Derek MacKenzie scored his first goal of the year into an empty net.

Columbus came into the game as the only winless team in the league at 0-7-1 with 1 point, the worst start in team history.

There were 15,100 in attendance at Nationwide Arena. It was a welcome sight considering there had been several crowds this year under 10,000.

The addition of Wisniewski, a Michigan native from the Detroit area, was obvious on the defensive end. He played 27 minutes, 21 seconds and saw his first action since the preseason. The veteran free-agent signee from this past off-season was suspended for a hit to the head of Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck in an exhibition game on September 23.

Also getting into the scoring column was R.J. Umberger who had a goal and an assist.

* Since the start of the 97-98 season, the Red Wings have won more games (746) than any other team in the NHL. Detroit’s 640 regular season wins and 106 playoff victories are both tops in the NHL over that span.
