Top 9: Red Wings Power Play Goals

Detroit has not scored a power play goal in the last two games, going 0-7 in that time. In an attempt to breathe some life into their power play units, today’s list is the Red Wings’ all-time leaders for power play goals. Since Scotty Bowman took over in 1993, the Red Wings’ power play has always been near the top in terms of league leaders in power play percentage. Great special teams play can dictate games and even playoff series. Let’s hope Detroit’s PP and PK are on top of their games heading into their first round matchup.

Here are the Top 9 power play goal scorers in Red Wings’ history:
