Found October 27, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
The Detroit Red Wings' prospects wrapped up a busy weekend in mostly winning fashion, and a Red Wings prospect who's essentially on "probationary" status via an AHL-only contract took two big steps foward over the past two days. The Grand Rapids Griffins lost a 5-0 home decision to the Charlotte Checkers on Friday night, and then they headed on the road for what will end up being a thousand-plus-mile bus trip across the midwest. On Saturday, Tom McCollum stopped 32 of 34 shots en route to a 3-2 Griffins win over Chicago, and on Sunday, McCollum stopped 26 of 28 shots as the Griffins defeated the Iowa Wild 3-2. The Griffins' website provides a superb game recap: Continue reading "Red Wings prospect news: McCollum backstops back-to-back wins for Griffins; Mantha, Bertuzzi roll on"

Babcock, Wings look to reverse recent slide

DETROIT -- As they prepare to embark on their only trip to western Canada this season, the Red Wings are well aware that they need to change things in a hurry. They have lost four straight with disjointed efforts that have left them frustrated but resolved to turn things around. "Heres the cliff-notes version: Were not very good right now; were going to be," Wings coach...

Red Wings early overnight report: Babcock dissects Wings’ problems; on hockey bios & Star Wars Night

Some of this will be a bit repetitious, but there's a reason for it: it appears that no one captured what Red Wings coach Mike Babcock had to say after the Red Wings' practice on Monday, and that's disappointing--because Babcock very bluntly critiqued both his players and his coaching staff's performance over the past four games, essentially outlining a) what he believes...

Wings' Mike 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.

Trial for Todd Bertuzzi attack on former Avalanche Steve Moore set for 2014

Last week, each time Detroit's Todd Bertuzzi touched the puck in the Red Wings' victory over the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center, the boos were noticeable. Although the Avalanche roster has had a nearly complete turnover since March 8, 2004, many of the Colorado fans still remember Bertuzzi's attack that night on Avalanche center Steve Moore in Vancouver, British Columbia...

Red Wings Monday practice post: Franzen out, Glendening to be recalled and lots of ‘gnus and gnotes’

The Red Wings took to the ice after a very disappointing weekend and very disappointing slate of 4 consecutive losses, with bad on-ice habits requiring work-it-out repair and the team's negative results requiring some 'splaining to do. Practice kicked off with bad news from the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness: Johan Franzen missing at practice. Waiting on an update...

Red Wings overnight report: laying the Wings’ faults plain ahead of an answer-searching week

The Red Wings have a significant amount of work to do when they return to practice today, and they've got some 'splaining to do, too. The Wings didn't anticipate facing "must-win" situations during what's going to be a particularly difficult Western Canadian Swing (the Wings play 4 games in 4 different cities over the course of 6 nights, starting with...

Red Wings-Rangers wrap-up: rebuilding-on-the-fly team lays 4 consecutive eggs

The Detroit Red Wings' schedule ahead is a busy one: they'll leave town on Tuesday to take part in what is now a once-yearly Western Canadian swing, playing the Canucks on Wednesday, October 30th, heading to Calgary on Friday, November 1st, battling the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday the 2nd, heading to Winnipeg to finally play the Jets on Monday the 4th.

Detroit Red Wings Look to End Scoring Slump Against Rangers

Matchup: New York Rangers vs Detroit Red Wings Venue: Joe Louis Arena; Detroit, MI Time: 7pm Eastern Broadcast: Detroit - FSD, New York - MSG, National - NHLN-US I don’t think anything needs to be said about the Red Wings’ (6-4-1, 13 pts, 3rd Atlantic Division) effort in Wednesday night’s matchup against the Ottawa Senators. Their skating was sluggish, their zone entry...

Chris Osgood held a chat on Fox Sports Detroit’s Twitter account…Here’s how it went

As the subject suggests, Fox Sports Detroit's Chris Osgood held a Twitter Q and A on Fox Sports Detroit's Twitter account during the second period of the Wings' 3-2 OT loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday. As some of you are not Twitter fans, I'm dedicating an entry to it instead of jamming it in the overnight report so that you may read it if you wish to do...

Red Wings-Rangers quick take: Wings undone

Frustrating. Frustrating as hell. The Red Wings have lost four straight games now, having dropped consecutive games to Phoenix, San Jose, Ottawa and now a 3-2 overtime decision to the New York Rangers that was anything but fair to Jimmy Howard, who was absolutely sensational in the loss for the now 6-4-and-2 Wings. Something is bugging the Wings, just as something was bugging Todd...
