Jimmy D Tells It Like It Is

Our very own Jimmy Devellano – the Wings version of Joe Biden – spouted off today about the lockout and his boy Gary.  You can't ever fault Jimmy D for being honest, but his words stung a bit.  This is a great interview from IslandSportsNews.  Let's start on his feelings towards Gary:  "I think it […]


“We’re going home, we’ll have our crowd, we got to do something with it.” –Mike Babcock That quote comes to us via Khan(!).  Mike Babcock had a few interesting things to say after Sunday’s loss.  That first quote is my favorite – but I also found this one provocative: “I don’t know about getting in […]

Vancouver CaSucks

Well, Detroit finished their series almost a week ago and we STILL don’t know who we’re playing in Round 2.  It could be… San Jose Nashville Chicago How about those Vancouver Canucks letting Chicago slither their way back into this series.  Nothing like going up three games to none in a series, only to have […]

Well…That Sucked

And I’m not just talking about the game itself, but the performance at Joe Louis Arena during the latter half of the regular season. Luckily, I didn’t catch the first three goals last night.  And it’s not for lack of trying either.  I had already decided that I wasn’t going to subject myself to the […]

Still Giving to the Game

Stick tap to NOHS reader, D.M.N. for pointing out this story: “I try to pass on experience from the NHL, from going through playing junior in North America, and passing that experience on. I am not that much older than the players and there is only 10 years between us. It is nice to feel […]

2010…Not Bad

As we head into tomorrow night’s game against the Islanders, I thought that today would be a good time to look at where we stand, how we got there, and where we’re going heading into 2011. Here is where Detroit stands as of today, December 30th, 2010: Where do we stand?  First in the West […]

Eaves to Kenny: “Where’s my $100 Million Contract?”

In case you missed it, 7 goals put up by the Detroit Red Wings on yet another self-proclaimed “rival.” Feels good to flip the STFU switch every now and again, make sure it still works. My favourite part of this win? Patrick Eaves, an under-appreciated, team-player-oriented, defensive specialist and great penalty killer of a hockey […]

Wings 7 Stars 3

It was a strange feeling for me, heading into tonight’s game actually feeling nervous about playing Dallas.  Then again, we’ve all been accustomed to having Marty Turco in net for them.  The good boys of Fox Sports Detroit came up with an interesting stat during the game – no one since the lockout have beaten […]

Ozzie Akbar!

One More Time, Congratulations, Chris  As you all are well aware, Chris Osgood became the tenth goalie in NHL history to reach 400 wins on Tuesday night in Colorado. I think Ken Daniels said it best, and to paraphrase him: “The NHL has been around 93 years and Chris Osgood has done what nine other […]

Grading Mursak’s Debut

So what did you think of #39 last night?  Obviously, we knew he was going to replace Danny Cleary – but Jan Mursak didn’t seem out of place last night in a game where the kids of Denver made a lot Red Wings look out of place at times.  Last night was a little un-nerving […]


Wings 4, Denver 3 OT Ozzie had to work for career win number 400 – tying his career high for saves in a game with 46. Congrats to Mr. Osgood.  He stole this game for us.

400 For Osgood…And He Had To Earn It

As a giant middle finger to everyone who’s said he’s relied on his team for his successes, Osgood picked up win #400 by stealing a game that Detroit really had no business being in.  49 shots, 46 saves = 400 wins. Congrats Chris.  Keep up this kind of play and, who knows, ol’ Marty might […]

Ozzie’s Standing On His Head

After two periods, Chris Osgood is 36 out of 38 and is keeping the Wings in it single-handedly. Come on defense…get it together for the third against Colorado (or as Murph just said, “COLO-ADO”.) For once, Ozzie deserves better than this.

Kick ‘Em When Their Down: Gettin’ Wild

The Wings just toyed with a weak Minnesota team and their fans’ hearts last night.  So why don’t we take a look at our sobbing friends’ reaction over at Pinky’s house: Hockey Wilderness.   Wild look like a peewee team compared to the Wings. by taralynn09 Come on…I like to think we at least look like […]

Cleary Out a Month

Well…they took the boot off of Cleary’s foot last night and the news is not good. That slapshot that Danny took off the foot has fractured his ankle, and he will be out at least a month.  Detroit, who is already missing their leading point-getter, will now be missing their leading goal scorer as well.  […]
