Found February 13, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Six nights ago, the Wings went into STL on a damn ugly two-game skid, and the prospects for the Wings season were dire.  DET looked like world-beaters at STL, winning 5-1 and starting a season high three game win streak they skate into The Joe with tonight.   Things couldn't be worse for STL.  The Blues stormed out of the gate, 6-1 in January, but since that time are 0-4-1.  In their last four contests (all at home), they've been thrashed:  1-6 to NSH, 1-5 to DET, 5-6 (SO) to ANA, and 1-4 to LAK. STL have a league-best, ridiculously good, PP; and DET's PK is fourth worst in the league.  LGRW Continue reading "GDT - Game 13: Red Wings (7-4-1) host Blues (6-5-1) 7:30"

Pavel Datsyuk bank-shot goal from behind the net

Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk is known for his skill, but you can’t forget about how incredibly smart he is.  He picked up his own rebound, looked at the net, realized he had enough space and fired it from behind the net off the back of the glove of St. Louis Blues rookie goaltender Jake Allen.  Unfortunately for Datsyuk, his magic wasn’t enough as the Red Wings blew...

Red Wings overnight report: on ‘Panic in Hockeytown,’ Zetterberg, Brunner, Cleary and realignment

The Detroit Red Wings took Monday off to rest up as the team had played four games in six nights and a pair of weekend games, including Sunday's 3-2 win over Los Angeles, but the Kings made the Wings' lives a little more difficult on Monday night. When the Wings return to practice today, they'll know that the St. Louis Blues will be coming into town in an awful mood...

Tomas Tatar Scores Dazzling Goal in Detroit Red Wings’ Loss: Video

The Detroit Red Wings were handed a tough 4-3 overtime loss by the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night, after leading 2-0 early on in the game. Tomas Tatar, recently up from Grand Rapids of the AHL, opened the scoring with a Datsyukian move at the net — Tatar corralled a loose puck just in front of St. Louis rookie netminder Jake Allen, pulled off a sensational deke, then roofed...

Review: The Wings at the quarter point of the season

First let’s get this out of the way. The Detroit Red Wings just played 3 games in 4 days with 2 of those games inside a 24 hour period. Coming out of the other end of things the Wings won all 3 games against St. Louis, Edmonton and LA scoring 10 goals, allowing just 4 against and has put Hockeytown at ease for the moment. So here we are, 12 games played and a 7-4-1 record, currently...

Red Wings Thursday practice post in progress: no changes on the injury front

The Detroit Red Wings are back on the ice at Joe Louis Arena, hoping to rebound from a 4-3 OT loss to St. Louis despite facing a very, very tough task on Friday in battling the 9-2-and-1 Anaheim Ducks, who haven't played since defeating the Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout on Tuesday. I'm going to be out of the office from about 12:30-2, so if there's big breaking injury...

Red Wings Tuesday practice post in progress: no news isn’t good news regarding Helm, Bertuzzi

The Detroit Red Wings are back on the ice today, preparing for a grudge match and-a-half against an ornery St. Louis Blues team tomorrow evening (7:30 PM EST, NBCSN/97.1 FM, and, via RedWingsFeed, Yahoo Sports' Sean Leahy expertly explored the Blues' issues), and it sounds like the Wings will have to continue playing without a pair of players battlng back ailments: ...

Red Wings’ Niklas Kronwall partnering with autism charity

The Macomb Daily's Jerry Wolfe reports that Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's going to donate tickets for Red Wings games to families affected by autism, starting this season, in association with the Autism Alliance of Michigan: Kronwall, 32, was turned onto AAoM after hearing Anthony Ianni speak about awareness and safety training for those with autism who face...

Red Wings-Blues game-day updates, take 2: Johan Franzen’s out for tonight

Normally, I'd try to keep the game-day updates regarding tonight's game between the Red Wings and St. Louis Blues (7:30 PM EST, NBCSN/TSN/97.1 FM) in one thread, but surprising and unpleasant injury news regarding a player whose size and strength the Wings rather desperately needed to employ against St. Louis merits its own entry. According to the Macomb Daily's Chuck...

Red Wings support mental illness awareness via ‘Do it for Daron’

Mental health issues are coming to the fore this week in Canada, where Bell Canada's donating 5 cents per Tweet with the hashtag #BellLetsTalk to mental health charities and research, and the Red Wings are voicing their support both the Bell Let's Talk campaign and Binghamton Senators (the primary AHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators) coach Luke Richardson's Do it for...

Red Wings-Blues wrap-up and overnight report: bad habits die hard during Lidstrom’s low-key return

I was more than a little pissed off after the Red Wings allowed some very bad habits to manifest themselves along the way toward surrendering a 2-0 lead and eventually losing in OT to the St. Louis Blues by a  4-3 tally, and I don't feel like backing off my assessment very much. The Wings, playing without Todd Bertuzzi (back), Darren Helm (back), Johan Franzen (hip flexor...

Red Wings Thursday practice post, part 2: the status is quo on the injury front; on Kevlar socks

I headed out of the office during the middle of the Red Wings' Thursday practice at Joe Louis Arena, and having come home from my doctor's appointment (okay, technically, I went to see my case manager at CMH), there just isn't much new to report on the personnel front. The Wings will employ their same lineup, same goaltender and probably their same lines from Wednesday...

Looking Ahead to 2013-14

I know it's early, but its always fun to speculate. What will the Red Wings look like in 13-14? There are some questions that need to be answered, mainly how can they upgrade on defense, and can they keep both Filppula and Brunner? Who's out, and who's in? Take the jump for more speculation. Looking at CapGeek we can see that Kenny will have to make a...

Red Wings-Blues quick take: Wings fail their first-quarter exam in a big way

I don't know what the *#$%@& to say. The Red Wings had a 2-0 lead on the sleeping St. Louis Blues, and then, somehow, a team that'd won 3 straight and 3 straight games against St. Louis managed to find a way to wake a sleeping giant and *#$%@& themselves over as thoroughly as possible en route to a 3-2 OT loss to the Blues. The Red Wings took all of 5 shots in the...
