Detroit Red Wings
NHL 14: Detroit Red Wings Guide
Written By: JCOL32
The Detroit Red Wings were founded in 1926 as one of the “Original Six” franchises and since that time have won the most Stanley Cup championships (11) of any franchise based in the United States. The team has made the playoffs in 26 of the last 28 seasons, including the last 21 consecutive.
The Red Wings will enter the 2013/14 season in a brand new position…the Eastern Conference! The addition of Daniel Alfredsson should help the Wings produce goals along with the help of captain Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk. If Jimmy Howard can stay on top of his game and stay healthy, Detroit will be a force to be reckoned with in their first season in the east.
How to Play as the Red Wings:
With the Red Wings talented attack led by Pavel Datsyuk, Daniel Alfredsson and captain, Henrik Zetterberg, try to push for powerplay opportunities. Detroit can move the puck around beautifully and you will surely have success. Don’t be afraid to take some chances offensively as you have Jimmy Howard backing you up in net and Nicklas Kronwall on the blue line.
The Red Wings are well known for their tradition called “The Legend of the Octopus” where an Octopus is thrown out onto the ice surface during playoff games for good luck.
