Found May 06, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
After two very busy days at the World Championships (see last overnight report and Saturday post for news and, surprisingly enough, mysterious links to web streams that just might help the geo-blocked watch the Worlds…how did those get in there?) the Red Wings’ participants—which now number an even dozen players with Kyle Quincey joining Team Canada—will receive something of a “slow day” as the six-game slate only includes two Wings players participating in games in Valtteri Filppula (Finland) and Pavel Datsyuk (Russia). From the schedule post, here are today’s games, with their starting times updated and translated to Eastern Daylight Time: May 6: 9:15 a.m. – Finland vs. Slovakia; [10:15 AM] – Russia vs. NorwayContinue reading "Rd Wings overnight report: Worlds, day 2 wrap-up, on Jurco and Sunday rumors"

Red Wings at the Worlds, Sunday: Finns edge Slovakia; Datsyuk scores for Russia, Zetterberg OK

Two of the Red Wings’ three Sunday-playing participants in the World Championships faced off this morning, and the result was…Less than scintillating. Valtteri Filppula and Finland defeated Tomas Tatar’s Slovaks 1-0, with the Finns executing their trapping style to perfection while nursing the hell out of Janne Pesonen’s goal scored all of 7:32 into the 1st period. Tatar...

Make it a dozen Red Wings participating in the Worlds as Kyle Quincey joins Canada

Time to edit the Worlds post to reflect a full dozen’s worth of Red Wings players and prospects taking part in the World Championship, via the Canadian Press’s Chris Johnston: Kyle Quincey will join Canada at the world championship tomorrow, according to @HC_TeamCanada. The other Wings participating in the Worlds are Jonathan Ericsson, Johan Franzen, Calle Jarnkrok, Niklas...

Red Wings at the Worlds, Saturday: Datsyuk scoreless in Russian win; Howard wins barn-burner; Z^2

Updated 7x at 5:19 PM: The biggest Red Wings-related news regarding the World Championships thus far involves Kyle Quincey becoming the 12th Wings player or prospect taking part in the Worlds as Quincey will join Team Canada tomorrow, and as I’m writing this, the U.S. and Canada are facing off in a game which began at 12 PM EDT and will air at 7:30 PM EDT on the NBC Sports Network...

Red Wings mid-day news: Wings at the Worlds, day 4 in progress: Howard’s in tough vs Slovakia

“Getting it wrong” stinks when you’re in the business of not doing so whenever possible, so it is with annoyance that I must state that while the U.S. and Slovakia started playing at 1:15 PM, as advertised, Stockholm time and Helsinki time are an hour apart, so the Swedes actually face off against Denmark at 2:15 PM EDT (minus Jonathan Ericsson; both games were listed as starting...

Red Wings overnight report: Ericsson injury news, Gordie; alums on retirement and Vladdie’s art

After a “light” day at the World Championships on Sunday, the Red Wings’ Worlds participants will take part in a very, very busy day of games today, with Wings coach Mike Babcock taking in the Helsinki games From the scheduling post (again, many thanks to MLive’s Brendan Savage for putting the “master plan” together) and adding in some new details, here’s today...

The Swedes must be crazy: a bit of gabba about a very different media Worlds

Ahead of a very busy day for the Red Wings’ participants at the World Championships—Kyle Quincey and Canada will tangle with France at 9:15 AM, Petr Mrazek probably won’t play in the Czechs’ tilt with Norway at 10:15 AM, but Jimmy Howard and Justin Abdelkader will face off against Tomas Tatar when the U.S. and Slovakia battle at 1:15 PM (on the NBC Sports Network), and every...

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock engages in R&D at the Worlds

With a dozen Red Wings players or prospects in action at the World Championships (Tomas Tatar, Valtteri Filppula and Pavel Datsyuk took part in games earlier today) and more than a few potential draft picks and/or free agents available for viewing in Helsinki and Stockholm over the next two weeks, there’s no doubt that the Detroit Red Wings’ pro scouts, amateur scouts and braintrust...

Igor Larionov says the ‘Russian problem’ does exist…to some extent

The Detroit Red Wings never had a “Russian problem” when Igor Larionov, Slava Fetisov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Kozlov and Sergei Fedorov were helping the team win Stanley Cups in the 90’s, or when Pavel Datsyuk joined the fray in the early 2000’s, and in light of the shenanigans involving Predators forwards Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn, Larionov, who now represents...
