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 […]

Red Wings vs Bruins Recap: 10.14.13

Was it a good game? I didn't get to see it, but based on the reaction from Twitter, it was entertaining. So, since I missed the game, I'll leave it up to you to comment and tell everyone else how it went. One thing I did notice was that Detroit didn't have a single power […]

Dear NHL Network, We Need To Talk…

Dear NHL Network. I like you.  When I had Time Warner and they threw it in to the package for free, it was great.  I enjoyed eating breakfast basking in the glow of last night's highlights with hosted by former back-up goalies. Plus, if I didn't have GameCenter, those extra games would have sure been […]

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 […]

Hey Babcock – Need Goals? Here You Go…

Right now, it's clear things aren't click yet for Detroit.  Weiss was -4 last night, Alfie was -3.  What can be done?  Khan(!) gives Babbles some obvious suggestions.  Options for Babcock include inserting one or both of his healthy spare forwards, Tomas Tatar and Jordin Tootoo. Now we all know Tootoo isn't going to do […]

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 […]

Detroit Welcomes Troubled Youngsters from Phoenix

Tonight the Detroit Red Wings, in all their glory and splendor, host the dogs from the desert that boast one of the biggest stories of the offseason. For us, it has been quite the exhausting journey. Much like the neighbor kid who grows into a huge, belligerent drunk a-hole, then moves back into his mother’s […]

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 […]

Season Puck Drop Gameday Movie Poster

Life in the East starts tonight against our longtime rivals (well if you're NBC at least). But I don't care about that.  All I care about is that Detroit Red Wings hockey is back. And what does that mean for NOHS?  It means that we're going to give you what you want, a game day […]

The Wings Are Back and So Are We – With 2013-14 Predictions!

Well look at this, the blog isn’t dead. Nope!  Like the Namesake, NOHS has simply been on LTIR over the summer. Jobs, weddings, houses, and life got in the way for us, plus we were pretty burned out from the season before and the lockout in general. We needed the time off, plus, really, what […]

Wings Trio Invited to US Camp

As we wait for more UFA news to trickle in…I thought it would be a good idea to keep you abreast of the US National Team developments. But only because we have three players from the Detroit Red Wings organ-i-zation that have received invites to the camp. 1 Forward 1 Defenseman 1 Goalies I would […]

Datsyuk Being Datsyuk

Puck Daddy seems to be a love/hate relationship with Wings fans.  But we can agree, the best thing about Puck Daddy is the awesome Pavel interviews they get and the one today is no exception.  Here's a few highlights showing our favorite Russian at this best:  Henrik Zetterberg was named team captain this season. How […]
