Detroit fans probably have that number embedded in their brains by now... from Anshar Khan of Mlive, The Detroit Red Wings play 14 of their final 23 games on the road and need to win a fair share of them to get into the playoffs. They're going to need a contribution from their power play. They haven't gotten it yet. Following Saturday's 3-0 loss at Columbus, the Red Wings are 0-for-36 on the power play in 10 road games. They are the only club that hasn't converted on the man-advantage away from home. They have the personnel. They've shown that at home, where they rank ninth in the NHL at 22.6 percent (14-of-62). continued

Red Wings’ Niklas Kronwall tells Craig Custance why the NHLPA accepted NHL’s realignment proposal

Very interesting stuff: Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall spoke to ESPN's Craig Custance for an ESPN Insider blog entry, and the Red Wings' NHLPA player representative told Custance that the NHL provided the PA with multiple mock schedules which illustrated the travel teams would have to face, satisfying the players at least to the point that they chose to consent to the...

Red Wings vs Blue Jacket Recap: 3.9.2013

Red Wings didn't give much effort today and fell to the Blue Jacket 3-0. This is the first time in the history of ever that Columbus won a season series against the Wings and they deserved it. We're missing a bunch of guys that probably shouldn't be on the team anyways (minus Helm, of course) and they're missing a few of their best players but still destroyed us....

Kristen Bell is a big Detroit Red Wings fan (pictures)

There’s little doubt that, when it comes to adorability, Mega Detroit Red Wings fan Kristen Bell gives just about every actress in Hollywood a run for their money. Besides being one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood, with roles in movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, Ms. Bell rose to fame and garnered critical praise as the title role on...

Vinny Prospal tells Justin Abdelkader to check the Scoreboard

With 5:54 left in the third period Columbus Blue Jackets forward Vinny Prospal and Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader got into a bit of a shoving match.  As they were separated, Prospal pointed to the scoreboard to let Abdelkader know that the Blue Jackets were up 3-0, in case he had forgotten.  The scoreboard point earned Prospal a 10-minute misconduct which seems extreme...

Wings' weekend swept by Blue Jackets

DETROIT -- If the Detroit Red Wings miss the playoffs for the first time in 22 seasons, they'll likely have their neighbors to the south to blame. The Columbus Blue Jackets, who came into Sunday's game 14th in the Western Conference with 22 points, beat the Wings for the second straight night, 3-2 in a shootout. For those scoring at home, the Wings went 1-3-1 against the...

Blue Jackets vs Red Wings Recap: 3.10.2013

The Red Wings have been dominated by the Jackets all year and today was no different. The Red Wings only took 3 of a possible 10 points. That's pathetic. Not only are the Jackets a bad team, they were also missing their 4 best players, yet they still owned the Red Wings twice in as many days. More after the jump: Seems the entire team is slumping right now. Even Howard...

Rapping Red Wings: Detroit Knows Blackhawks’ Streak Doesn’t Ensure Playoff Success

Peaking early. It’s one of the biggest dangers in sports, especially during the regular season. Remarkably, the Chicago Blackhawks haven’t tasted hockey adversity in three months, and naturally, they’re getting all the best headlines. But this is March, and despite all the fluff you’ve been reading and seeing on television, it dosen’t mean the Blackhawks are guaranteed...

GDT - Game 25: Red Wings (12-8-4) at Blue Jackets (8-12-4) 2:00

Half way there, and DET are sitting in 4th. After the start to this season, who'd a thunk it?  That is the good news anyways.  In the crosstown traffic that is the WC, the Wings are only 4 points from 11th position. The problematic bit is that DET are the road warrior the rest of the month;  8 road games versus just 3 at home.  April is a little better, 7 road, 6 at JLA. ...

GDT - Game 26: Red Wings (12-9-4) host Blue Jackets (9-12-4) 5:00

Yesterdays tilt with the BJ's was a gawd-awful mess.  Really, how does a man get abused by BJ's?  Uncle Mike obviously doesn't know either, as this is the second occurance of the sky falling:   “I thought we were bad,'' Babcock said. “Why was that? Was that mental prep? Was that the coach never got any messages across? Lack of preparation? Did we practice...
