Wings Making Shanghai News


In communist China, the newspaper reads you.

Usually summertime is when we find obscure references to the Detroit Red Wings and post them, but what the hey?  We got a little blurb in the Shanghai Daily:

In Detroit, Valtteri Filppula scored with 6:49 left and added an empty-net goal, and Jimmy Howard made 30 saves to help the Red Wings move four points ahead of Calgary for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot with a 4-2 win over the Blues.

Dynamite coverage.  You hear that, Jimmy?  They know about you in China now.  The article was based mostly on the Penguins and Capitals game, but we got mentioned gosh darn it.
