Alex Nedeljkovic and Thomas Greiss are combining to give the Red Wings top notch netminding.

You don’t need to be a hockey savant to recognize the value of the 1-2 puckstopping punch that the Detroit Wings are displaying this season. It will go a long way toward determining what level of success this team will enjoy during the NHL campaign.

In Thomas Greiss and Alex Nedeljkovic, Detroit is getting elite netminding virtually every game.

“I just don’t know in this league if you can win on a consistent basis if you don’t get really good goaltending,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “If you look around the league at most of the records, you look and their goaltenders have played really well. We need the same.”

These are the top five netminding tandems in Red Wings history.
