Detroit Red Wings win preseason opener over Pittsburgh Penguins

Hockey is back! Well not on local television just yet, but the Detroit Red Wings have opened up their September scrimmages with a strong 4-1 win in Pittsburgh. Couldn’t find a video feed to watch your Red Wings, don’t worry I got you covered. Here are my takeaways from the “first game of the season.” Tatar making his case Tomas Tatar gets the offensive going halfway through...

Cleary signing has Babcock's fingerprints

Since my return from Detroit Red Wings training camp in Traverse City, Mich., Ive been bombarded with questions about the Daniel Cleary signing, why it was allowed to become such a prolonged saga -- especially for a player on the downside of his career. Clearys signing has less to do with the hockey player and more to do with the coach, Mike Babcock. By most accounts, Red Wings...

NHL Preview: Best players in the Atlantic Division

Pavel Datsyuk dangling around the goalie, scoring a goal. (Photo credit: AP/Donna McWilliam) The weather is cooling, blades are sharpening, ice is freezing, banging and swishing sounds of washers and dryers cleaning franchise paraphernalia are heard, and jerseys are being mounted in locker rooms across the country. This can mean only one thing – the NHL is back for another entertaining...

Roger Mussa: Welcome Mr. Brunner - What does it mean to the Devils?

***Follow me on Twitter @NJDAdvocate Uncle Lou strikes again... Camp has barely started and a PTO has been extended to Damien Brunner. As surprised as I am he is still unsigned, I do think this match has been orchestrated throughout the summer between Uncle Lou and Brunner's camp. Was Brunner priced out of the market and missed the boat due to a high asking price? Was...

More of the same on defense would be fine with Wings

Amid their summer of free-agent acquisitions and what turned out to be the epic signing of Daniel Cleary, the hierarchy of the Detroit Red Wings were behind the scenes trying to figure out how to shore up their young defensive corps. Its not that the Wings are down on their young defensemen. Theyre just looking for a veteran presence to stabilize their youthful and unpredictable...

Barlcay Goodrow turns down AHL offer from Wings, heads back to North Bay

I witnessed Ken Holland, Ryan Martin and Jiri Fischer have "a talk" with camp try-out Barclay Goodrow on Monday, and 100% of the time, that's a "fish or cut bait" sign, but I chose not to ask them about their discussion as I'm still a little overly polite. Yahoo Sports' Neate Sager found out what happened via the North Bay-Nippising News... Captain...

Red Wings mid-day news, ‘day off’ version: on Brunner, forward rankings, Alfredsson and Gustavsson

I'm supposed to be taking a full day off today, and I am exhausted after a pair of 90-to-100-hour work weeks, but the Pulkkinen issue has me pissed off and grumpy, so here's an abbreviated Red Wings morning report. I will be driving home tomorrow and will not cover the Bruins game in much detail, though I will watch it on FSD like the rest of you. DetroitRedWings.com'...

Audio from the last day of Red Wings training camp: Kronwall, Cleary, Babcock, Datsyuk and much more

The Red Wings will get a full day off after playing the Chicago Blackhawks this evening (8 PM EDT, no TV, WGN Radio), but the gents were hard at work in terms of both the players taking part in the game-day skate--minus Johan Franzen, who has a hip flexor issue--and the non-game-day guys, minus Brendan Smith, who has a wee groin tweak. At this point in the exhibition season, the...

Wings Rank #1 In Social Media According To Emory University Study

from Emory Sports Marketing Analytics, The number one team in our social media ranking is the Detroit Red Wings.  This is not a surprise, as the common wisdom is that the Red Wings are the number one team in Detroit (at least according to Professor Lewis’ sister in law).  The Red Wings have great social media presence on both Facebook and Twitter.  In positions 2 through...

‘Fan Equity’: Ottawa vs. Detroit

George’s recent post has turned me on to Emory University’s ranking of what they’ve called ‘social media equity’ among NHL fan-bases (Detroit was first – congratulations) and the broader work they’ve done on sports marketing statistics. My Senators have not done well in these rankings. Ottawa ranked 26th in the social media study, and was declared to be the ‘worst...

Almquist scores 2 PP goals in 2nd period for Wings

Adam Almquist scored two power-play goals in the second period and Tomas Tatar had a goal and assist to lead the Detroit Red Wings past the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Monday night in a preseason game. Paval Datsyuk also scored for Detroit, netting a second-period, unassisted goal. Almquist scored at 6:10 and 11:50 with shots from the point to put the Red Wings ahead 3-1. Brandon...

Red Wings-Blackhawks pre-season wrap-up/overnight report: weird loss, DeKeyser, Sammy, gone fishin’

Given that no one outside the United Center witnessed the Chicago Blackhawks defeat the Detroit Red Wings 2-0 on Tuesday night (the Wings won't practice today; they practice early on Thursday morning before heading to Boston for a 7 PM game that will air on Fox Sports Detroit), perhaps it's best to start this entry with highlights, albeit Blackhawks-centric ones from their...

Red Wings morning report: Wings-Pens-Hawks, defensive present and future, Howard and coverage gnus

The Red Wings' 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins wasn't exactly a thing of beauty, but for a game in which the Red Wings were really just getting their feet under them, the team played very solidly. As noted in the quick take, Adam Almquist scored two goals and Pavel Datsyuk scored a beauty, and as NHL.com's highlights are still a mess in terms of embedding, we'...
