Not good, from DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose:
@detroitredwings forward Jan Mursak has an upper body injury and will not return to tonight's game vs. @stlouisblues.

Fox Sports Detroit showed an excellent replay of what happened: early in the first period, David Backes launched himself into Mursak at the Wings' bench, and the tip of Mursak's shoulder hit the top of the boards. He managed to finish the first, but did not return.
More as it comes in.

Some bad news for the Detroit Red Wings on opening night: forward Todd Bertuzzi, who was thought to have the flu, will instead miss “several weeks” with mono, Mike Babcock told reporters on Saturday.
Considering the shortened schedule and a typical recovery time from mono, Bertuzzi may not make his 2013 debut until the final stretch of the regular season in late March or early...
The Detroit Red Wings have played in the last 21 Stanley Cup playoffs. That postseason streak might be in jeopardy.
The storied franchise is starting a season without seven-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom for the first time since the 1990-91, the year its run in the playoffs began.
Lidstrom retired last summer and the 42-year-old defenseman turned down an offer from...
The Detroit Red Wings had a rough outing on Saturday night, dropping a 6-0 loss to St. Louis, but the team's AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, defeated the Rockford IceHogs 11-6...And if you look at the box score, they had an "interesting" evening.
Via the Left Wing Lock's Sarah Lindenau, here's a video of a bench-clearing brawl at the 11:58 mark of...
Despite a spate of injuries that could leave the Detroit Red Wings down a couple of key forwards when the season opens, veteran Mike Knuble could not claim a roster spot. Instead, Knuble will head to the AHL.
Knuble will sign PTO with Grand Rapids, trying to catch onto NHL team.

According to the Detroit News, 28-year-old Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves has been cleared to return to the ice after missing the past year.
Eaves, who hasn’t played since November of 2011 due to a broken jaw and concussion when a shot hit him in the face should be on the Wings’ roster Saturday night when they travel to St. Louis to take on the Blues.
The Wings however will...

Mike Knuble signed a 25-game pro tryout contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins. That means he'll play for the Griffins but can sign with any NHL team that comes calling.
Todd Bertuzzi (groin, sick) will not play in Saturday's season opener at St. Louis but the club hopes he'll be ready for the second game, Monday in Columbus.
Fox Sports Detroit posted its preliminary Red Wings broadcast schedule about a week ago, and now the Red Wings have issued a press release stating both its TV and radio broadcast slots for the 2013 season.

Prior to the past couple seasons, the Detroit Red Wings have heard every possible explanation for why their long-running playoff streak could finally end.
Adding another year to an aging core and subtracting one of the greatest defensemen in NHL history heading into a lockout-shortened sprint of a season make this one no exception.
Detroit begins its quest for a 22nd straight playoff...

After an autumn and winter full of learning too much about union proceedings, #DregerFace, disclaimers of interest, the Fehr brothers and âthe hill the NHL would die onâ, the National Hockey League finally returns to game action by dropping the puck today to commence their second lockout-shortened season in league history.
The last time their...
Editors Note: This is a series that will run throughout the Red Wings season as Andrew attempts the treacherous journey of teaching his significant other about hockey, the NHL, the Detroit Red Wings and why the shootout is stupid. Check back regularly for updates on the process and anecdotes about how no matter what happens, Patrick Roy was never as good as Chris Osgood.
from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press,
One game certainly isn't cause for pressing the panic button. A certain amount of sloppiness and lack of cohesion was expected. But considering that all of the Wings' concerns this season revealed themselves within the first two periods of the first game suggests that general manager Ken Holland perhaps can't afford to be...
The season opener is in the books and the Red Wings played like trash. The Blues came to play and the Red Wings were completely unprepared. Sad.
The defense was a big letdown. Quincey in particular had a bad night. Blues rookie Vladimir Tarasenko
humiliated him over and over again. It’s not all on Quincey, though. Not by a long shot...
In this weeks episode of Crashing the Net with Aaron Eggemeyer, the hockey guru himself breaks down each division heading into the shortened regular season while spending some time discussion a Red Wings team entering a new era under the captaincy of Henrik Zetterberg.
