DETROIT - Dave Lewis will return to coach the Red Wings. Lewis, whose contract expired when the Flames eliminated Detroit in the second round, met with general manager Ken Holland Thursday.

Lewis led Detroit to a 96-41-21-6 record in two seasons, but he won only one playoff series with a postseason mark of 6-10.
The Red Wings earned 110 points last season and 109 this season.
