Plus they play 3 games in 4 nights, the first two being on the road which leaves zero time to practice, specifically on the power play.

Is the schedule and the quick start all to blame? No, this isn't a great team, but its not a horrible team like you want to make them out to be.
Dallas also played their 3rd game in 4 nights but had a lot more jump and was better in every facet of the game.

Detroit is just too old to play good in the 3rd game in 4 nights or on the 2nd game of a back to back
