The Red Wings lost for the seventh time in the last nine games.
They dropped a 6 to 3 decision last night to the Washington Capitals.
That wasn’t the only loss that Detroit suffered last night.
Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson was injured, when he was slammed into the boards by the Capitals’
Nicklas Backstrom in the first period.
Ericsson is expected to be sidelined for the next 6 to 8 weeks.
