John Niyo and Ted Kulfan review the Red Wings at midseason in this edition of The Detroit News' Red Wings Report.

After 41 games, the Red Wings have only 37 points and will probably need at least 60 points in the final 41 games to make the playoffs.

New Jersey and Columbus were Eastern Conference wild-card teams with 97 points last year.

The Las Vegas odds of the Wings making the playoffs: 2 percent.
