Red Wings seem set up for success in shift to East

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings seem to have set themselves up for success as they shift to the Eastern Conference. Detroit added Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss to a roster that includes most of the key players from last year's team.  The Red Wings extended the franchise's playoff streak to 22 last season and were a win away from eliminating Chicago and advancing to the conference finals. General manager Ken Holland accomplished his No. 1 goal of the offseason, re-signing superstar Pavel Datsyuk to prevent him from being a free agent next summer. Holland also boosted the team's ability to score with a surprising acquisition, adding Alfredsson after he spent his entire career with the Ottawa Senators.
