Found October 31, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Red Wings fans tend to view their team's bench boss as, well, theirs, but Babcock engaged in a little Q and A with TSN prior to the Red Wings-Canucks tilt, and he barely discussed his "day job." Wednesday marked the 100-days-and-counting mark to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and's Dan Rosen profiled Babcock as Team Canada's coach and man at the helm as the team attempts to defend its 2010 gold medal. Babcock himself plays something of a supporting role, with Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson, Team Canada GM Steve Yzerman, would-be assistant coach Ken Hitchcock and likely roster player Sidney Crosby about Babcock's value to the "team."

Red Wings vs Canucks Recap: 10.30.13

Detroit played a great game overall and was rewarded with two points. They did a much better job of winning battles along the boards, they retrieved loose pucks, and created turnovers with their hard work. More after the jump: Sorry for the late post, but I’m not conditioned for these late games like I used to be. First of all, I thought Howard played a good game. I wasn’t...

Should merit a suspension, a la Zach Kassian's 5...

The Detroit Red Wings hope to build upon their 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks when they tangle with the Calgary Flames on Friday night (9:30 PM EDT, FSD Plus/Sportsnet West/97.1 FM), and the Wings certainly discussed their win as something of a bedrock-worthy stepping stone after the game. With Johan Franzen ready to return from his "unspecified injury," the Wings...

Babcock on four-game skid: 'We're not organized. We're not efficient'

The Red Wings are going back to the basics and coach Mike Babcock is sharing the blame for the team's recent four-game winless streak, saying the struggles are due to lack of organization.

Happy Pav-o-ween

Metro Detroit's in the middle of a nasty rain-and-wind storm that's drenching us with over an inch of rain and wind gusts in excess of 25-35 miles an hour, but Pavel Datsyuk is wishing everyone a happy Haloween, even if it's rainy, via posting a picture of his Halloween costume from 2011: Happy Halloween everyone!

Red Wings-Canucks wrap-up and overnight report: Wings earn a win to build upon

The Red Wings hopped on a very late-night flight to Calgary having snapped a 4-game winless streak, earning a gutsy, hard-working 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks. I don't disagree with some of the Canucks' assessments of the game. It was definitely won and lost in the trenches, and the first period at least wasn't elegantly-played, especially on what was just...
