DETROIT — The Wings are 0-3-2 in their last five games. During that stretch they’ve scored just one power play goal and have given up two-goal leads three times.
“First and foremost we can’t look at the schedule and get too far ahead of us,” said goalie Jimmy Howard, who will start Saturday at home against the Nashville Predators.
“The schedule is going to be tougher (second half of season), the traveling is going to be tougher,” defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “We have to make sure we take care of our home ice. We haven’t done that so far.”
