DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings have 10 games remaining on their 2018-19 schedule. 

That's 10 games left in the race to the bottom.

As Tankathon points out, the Red Wings currently sit in 29th place, giving them an 11.5 percent chance of grabbing the 1st overall pick in this year's NHL Draft Lottery. Second-to-last place has a 13.5 percent shot at the 1st overall pick while last place team has an 18.5 percent chance at it. 

To recap:

  • Last place gets the Cadillac Eldorado (Jack Hughes).
  • Second-to-last place gets the set of steak knives. 
  • And everyone else is fired. 

I'm real sorry if you don't get the reference.

March 19, 2019@ New York Rangers (7 p.m.) 
March 21, 2019@ St. Louis (8 p.m.) 
March 23, 2019@ Vegas (10 p.m.) 
March 25, 2019@ San Jose (10:30 p.m.) 
March 28, 2019 @ Buffalo (7 p.m.) 
March 29, 2019 vs. New Jersey (7:30 p.m.) 
March 31, 2019vs. Boston (7:30 p.m.)

April 4, 2019@ Pittsburgh (7 p.m.) 
April 6, 2019vs. Buffalo (7 p.m.)
