Found March 10, 2013 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
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 was a bit off compared to how he had been playing the last couple weeks. I don't know what else to say about this game because there just weren't any bright spots again, so I'll end my recap with a question: The Red Wings lose Helm and a bunch of guys most of you don't even want on the team while the Griffins have lost their two best defensemen, Tatar and Andersson. One team can't maintain a win streak. One continues to win. Why? Next game is Wednesday in Calgary. LGRW

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....

Cloudy forecast at halfway point for Wings

DETROIT -- In a lockout-shortened season, things can change quickly for every team, including the Detroit Red Wings. Now that they've passed the midway point of the season -- 26 games into a compressed, 48-game schedule -- let's take a look at where they stand before they head out on the road. Things were looking pretty good before this past weekend. The Wings were in a...

Brendan Smith Fights Derek McKenzie: Video

Earlier this season, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Derek McKenzie sidelined Detroit Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith for 11 games with a hard hit that injured Smith’s shoulder. Sunday, Smith got a bit of payback. After the two again came together in Detroit’s zone during a 3-2 Columbus shootout win, Smith and McKenzie then dropped the gloves with about 15 minutes left in the...

What Would You Pay Jimmy Howard?

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal notes... The Detroit Red Wings will have to buck up for Jimmy Howard this summer when he’s an unrestricted free agent. Is he worth Kari Lehtonen’s $5.9 million, which starts next season? That’s an overpay by the Dallas Stars. But I’d say Howard should go from $2.25 million to $5 million. They don’t have a backup. He’s their guy...

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...

Red Wings on Facebook: Pav's Computer

I've been tossing around the idea of making a parody of the hilarious NFL Quarterbacks on Facebook for a while now and finally got around to it. Originally I was going to make fake accounts for every player, coach and fan in the organization. I was about half way done when Chris, being the Johnny-on-the-spot guy that he is, let me know about fakeconvos.com. So here it is...

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...

0-for-36 Should Say Enough

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...

Jackets finish home-and-home sweep of Wings

DETROIT (AP) -- Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout and the streaking Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Sunday to complete a home-and-home sweep. Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus, which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red Wings 3-0...

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...
