Red Wings Recap 10.19.2013

That game was dumb. Phoenix rode a wave of lucky bounces, bad calls and poor sportsmanship to beat Detroit 5-2. Not much to say about this game, really. Detroit played well, but just had some terrible breaks go against them late. Mike Smith got bailed out by the refs in the second period and then, […]

Red Wings vs Avalanche Recap: 10.17.13

4-2 win for the Wings tonight over the amazingly overrated Colorado Avalanche. If not for the Wings taking the second off and Gustavsson letting in two sympathy goals, the game would have been a blowout. Still, handing them their first loss was nice no matter how it happened. More after the jump: I know we […]

Blue Jackets vs Red Wings Recap: 10.15.13

Wings certainly looked like they were on the tail-end of 3 in 4, but pulled off a 2-1 win over the Blue Jackets thanks mostly to the solid goaltending of… Jonas Gustavsson. He was awesome tonight, though I never really felt comfortable with him in net. Unconventional and gave up lots of rebounds, but they […]

Flyers vs Red Wings Recap: 10.12.13

Detroit got a 5-2 win tonight, thanks in large part to the power play suddenly clicking. It was just a matter of time before those chances turned to goals. Howard was solid when needed and the PK was sound when called upon. Glendening made his NHL debut and played well. He was really good on […]

Coyotes vs Red Wings Recap: 10.10.13

Wings faced an angry Coyotes team tonight and fell 4-2. Faceoffs. That’s really what it came down to. Detroit couldn’t setup because they didn’t start with the puck enough and Phoenix was able to carry the play because they kept winning faceoffs. More after the jump:  A lot of people are down on the powerplay […]

Red Wings vs Hurricanes Recap 10.4.2013

Close call tonight, but the Red Wings came out on top of the Hurricanes 3-2 in OT. This game didn’t have a whole lot of good scoring chances by either team and most of the goals came off of broken plays. Nice to be 2-0 right now, though, so we’ll take the goals any way […]

Sabres vs Red Wings 10.2.13

Pretty solid win by the good guys tonight. Not a ton of goals, but they scored enough and that's what matters. The Wings did a lot of things right tonight and got the result they deserved. More after the jump: I know hockey is back because I don't seem to care that my wife wants […]

About that Lecavalier Guy…

Wouldn't it be great to have a guy like Vincent Levacalier on the team? What an upgrade he'd be over Filppula!

Cap Anxiety

NHL Free agency is just days away, so it’s time to prepare yourselves for disappointment. That’s not to say Ken Holland won’t have a good summer or that the Wings won’t be able to fill all of our perceived holes. When I say to prepare yourself for disappointment, I mean someone is going to get […]

Red Wings Draft Updates

The NHL Draft is now behind us and the Red Wings selected 8 players. They took 6 forwards and 2 defensemen. After the jump we’ll take a look at each pick and mention some of the most interesting transactions of the day. The aforementioned jump: The Wings traded their 18th overall pick to the Sharks […]

They Closed

I’m late to the party, but wanted to write about the Griffins’ Calder Cup championship win. First of all, I’m glad they were able to finish the job. Syracuse is a great team and being up 3-0 was a bit unexpected as far as I’m concerned. How does that BS line go? ‘If you had […]

Signings, Rumors and Griffins Updates

A lot has happened since the last time I posted something. I know I said that we’d keep you up to speed, then pretty much disappeared. Oops. Won’t happen again. Until it does. Updates after the jump: If you haven’t been paying attention, the Griffins have a 3-2 series lead on the Syracuse Crunch. That’s […]

Players We Need to Keep and Let Go

Now that the offseason is here, let’s take a look at whose contract is up and who needs to be bought out. This will be an interesting summer, to say the least. We’ve got a superstar to keep, the cap is going down, a bunch of UFAs, RFAs and some possible buyouts. The UFA market […]

Red Wings Game 7 Recap

It wasn't the ending we deserved, but it was the one we needed right now. Losing is the greatest teacher in hockey. If you think this hurts for you, I promise you Brendan Smith and Gustav Nyquist are dying inside. They, along with the rest of the kids on this team, will come back in […]
