The Red Wings
Like Dallas, the Wings have been off to a shaky start. They’ve alternated between wins and losses so far this season (on track for a win tonight if the trend continues) though their play has looked better the past few games.
The Wings lost 2-1 to the Stars a week ago as they just couldn’t solve Kari Lehtonen despite putting 39 shots on him.
Detroit is still bad on the power-play and the penalty kill and their injuries have not improved since that last game against Dallas. Among those injured and out for this game include forwards Darren Helm, Mikael Samuelsson, Jan Mursak and defensemen Ian White and Carlo Colaiacovo. Backup goaltenders Jonas Gustavsson and Joey MacDonald are also out for this game.
The biggest difference that the Stars can expect from Detroit is the look of the top lines. Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg were spli...
BEST OF MAXIM
On the heels of a frustrating 2-1 overtime loss to Chicago, DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose announced that the Red Wings' players would in fact brave the half-to-three quarters of an inch's worth of ice coating the roads in Metro Detroit this morning to head down to Joe Louis Arena...
#RedWings are scheduled to skate at 12 EST today at JLA. Stay tuned for all...
Tuesday night Jordin Tootoo, one of the Wings’ newest players from the offseason engaged in two separate fights within the span of 20 minutes as Detroit went on to beat the Stars 4-1.
The first Tootoo fight came just three seconds into the opening period when he dropped the gloves with Eric Nystrom sending the JLA crowd into a frenzy.
WATCH TOOTOO’S TWO FIGHTS FROM TUESDAY
FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- The Dallas Stars have recalled defenseman Jamie Oleksiak and forward Antoine Roussel from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.
Dallas also Wednesday assigned Reilly Smith to Texas.
The 6-foot-7 Oleksiak, a first-round pick in 2011, has 23 points (three goals, 20 assists) in 43 games for the Texas Stars and was an AHL All-Star this season. Roussel...
Red Wings forward Jordin Tootoo dropped the gloves twice Tuesday night in a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars from the Joe.
Tootoo’s first fight on the night came just three seconds into the game as he sparred with Eric Nystrom right off the opening face off.
Tootoo’s second fight came later in the period as he and Brenden Dillon went at it after bumping into each other at about...
Lost admist the cavalcade of injury updates during and immediately after the Red Wings' practice on Monday (see: Darren Helm (back) needs rest and may return next Tuesday, Jonas Gustavsson (groin) practiced and may play in one of the Wings' back-to-back games this weekend, Mikael Samuelsson (groin) did not skate, Ian White (thigh laceration) is probably a week out, Carlo...
from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Morrow is playing on the fourth line and has logged less than 10 minutes a game in each of the last two outings. He hasn’t seen that kind of role since he wore No. 45 while breaking in as a rookie back in 1999-2000. It’s not an easy decision for the Stars to make, and it’s not an easy reality for Morrow, who has played 812 games...
IF AT FIRST...
Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson had Stars goalie Keri Lehtonen beaten for a split second. Johnson’s wrister hit Lehtonen in the trapper, tipped up over the goalie’s shoulder was headed for the net when Lehtonen used his go-go gadget reflexes to reach behind himself for a backhanded snatch. It was part pitcher-fielding-a-comebacker part magician, but it’s definitely the...
Pavel Datsyuk stickhandled around a defender and sent a perfect pass across the front of the goal.
All Valtteri Filppula had to do was shoot into an open net, and he had no problem scoring his second goal of the game.
''Whenever he has the puck, you can always expect it's going to come your way,'' Filppula said. ''I've obviously played with him for...
The Detroit Red Wings will face off against the Dallas Stars tonight (7:30 PM EST, FSD Plus, Fox Sports Southwest Plus, AM 1270) hoping to rebound from a disappointing loss against Chicago while playing a team in somewhat similar circumstances.
The Stars have also undergone some roster revisions (see: Ray Whitney, Jaromir Jagr and Derek Roy), they've welcomed Jamie Benn back...
DETROIT (AP) -- Valtteri Filppula scored two goals -- both off nifty passes from Pavel Datsyuk -- and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Dallas Stars 4-1 on Tuesday night.
Henrik Zetterberg scored on a two-man advantage in the final minute of the second period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead, and Damien Brunner and Filppula scored 23 seconds apart in the third.
The Red Wings rallied...
Because weather issues forced the Dallas Stars to fly into Detroit today, they didn't hold a morning skate. As such, the Dallas News's Mike Heika and DallasStars.com's Mark Stepneski offered their game-day updates within the last hour, and the Wings' website has just wrapped up their game-day coverage. Those stories and videos are located in the post dedicated to...
A reach behind, mid-air grab.
This year’s iteration of the Detroit Red Wings—at least thus far—can be described as decidedly average, but can improve on that mediocrity tonight at home against a struggling Dallas Stars team.
Once Western Conference Playoff enemies, the Stars and Wings are almost mirror-images of themselves this season. While Dallas has played one more game, both squads sport two wins...
