On the Duck Pond:
Detroit Red Wings
San Jose Sharks
Wanting to bounce back from an awful game against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night, the Ducks gave it a second go on Sunday. The results were better, but still not enough to overcome Jimmy Howard's superb goaltending in the 2-1 loss. It was the first time the Ducks have lost two in a row all season long.
As it was on Friday evening, the Ducks fell behind when Dan Cleary scored on the first power play of the game at 4:14.
Former Duck, Drew Miller, made it 2-0 for Detroit when he stuck the puck through Jonas Hiller's five hole at 8:46 of the first period.
The Ducks had moments where they played well and a late power play goal from Ryan Getzlaf in the second period put the Ducks back by a single goal. Howard refused to let anything else in, making 33 saves to give the Red Wings the win.
"We were all over them," commented Andrew Cogliano after the game. "We had a couple of shifts there where they were out there for maybe a minute-ten. ...

Amongst today's Red Wings-related news stories:
TSN's Bob McKenzie reports that Danny DeKeyser may be receiving the kind of "wining and dining" treatment usually reserved for NHL superstars and not 23-year-old #3/4 defenseman in the making, but DeKeyser needs to make a decision as to which one of the probably 20+ teams that have made presentations at Newport...
Building upon today's early-afternoon post, the Red Wings' "day off" from their 48-games-in-99-nights marathon hasn't resulted in a dearth of Red Wings-related news. While the Wings are enjoying their time in Phoenix, back at Joe Louis Arena, DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose spoke to Kyle Quincey about taking one bullet and dodging another.
It’s only fitting with spring in the air, opening day for the Tigers approaches and amusement parks begin to open that we take a close look at this Red Wings team as they make a push for yet another playoff berth. On top of everything that has happened this shortened season though, the question pertaining to this team is who exactly are they? Are they the team that takes care of...
The Red Wings and Darren McCarty have reminded us that today marks the 16th anniversary of, "The Brawl in Hockeytown," and in honor of "Turtle Day" (via RedWingsFeed), 97.1 the Ticket's Jamie Samuelssen offers five facts about the game that might surprise you:
1) Joe Kocur missed the game because of the flu. If there was one game in his career that Joe...
I tried to combine the Red Wings-Ducks wrap-up and set-up for tonight's Wings-Coyotes game (10 PM EST, FSD/FS Arizona/97.1 FM) into one entry because that's how the narrative seemed to present itself, but not everything fit in one place, so...
Prepare for an extravaganza of discussion about Jarome Iginla, Danny DeKeyser, Calle Jarnkrok, Ladislav Smid(!), Pavel Datsyuk,...
We've talked about this at some length now, but the Free Press's Mike Bruendell is confirming what TPLHockey reported on Sunday: the Red Wings played no part in Fox Sports Detroit's decision to fire Larry Murphy, and Murphy's still baffled as to why FSD vice-president and general manager Greg Hammaren tossed Murphy to the curb, citing "ratings" and the fact...
Many believe that Western Michigan's Dan DeKeyser, an undrafted, unrestricted free agent, is a talent that could help the Detroit Red Wings now.
The Detroit Red Wings spent Tuesday by the pool in Phoenix after defeating the Coyotes on Monday night.
Today, they flew to San Jose to get back to work in preparation for tomorrow night's game against the San Jose Sharks (10:30 PM EDT, FSD/CSN Bay Area/97.1 FM, and the Sharks host the Ducks tonight). Many thanks to Paul for covering the main points as I plain old don't...
In an effort to add a little more veteran punch (and perhaps a boost to the penalty killing) the Ducks have signed right wing Radek Dvorak to a one-year contract. The contract is pro-rated at $675,000.
Dvorak, 36, has been playing in Davos, Switzerland, all year. He is the veteran of 1,191 NHL games with Florida, the New York Rangers, Edmonton, St. Louis, Atlanta and Dallas...
What a difference four days can make. The Detroit Red Wings entered their 4-game road swing through the Western U.S. sitting all of a pair of points up on every "playoff pack" team, including those damn Columbus Blue Jackets.
Heading into their first practice-less "dayoff" ince the Wings' 4-2 loss to Minnesota seven days ago, the Wings have gone 3-for-3...
It was 16 years ago today that the seemingly docile net protectors of the Red Wings and Avalanche squared off and beat the **** out of each other in the greatest collective fight in sports – neigh – mankind history.
At least that’s how I pictured it in my head at the time. Bear in mind, I was a little gap-toothed fourth-grader rocking a hard bowl cut. My perception of goalies...
Nice shorthanded goal by Tommy Wingels to put the Sharks up 4-0 over the Ducks, but watch Corey Perry with a needless shot to Dan Boyle who was following the play.
No penalty on the play but Boyle and Perry did go at it soon after this goal.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Pavel Datsyuk scored Detroit's second power-play goal in the third period and had an assist, lifting the Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the reeling Phoenix Coyotes on Monday. Datsyuk set up Johan Franzen's tying goal in the second period and beat Coyotes goalie Jason LaBarbera with a one-timer midway through the third period, giving him 11 points ...
Red Wings made that one about as interesting as they could while hanging on to the regulation win. We’ll take it, but in the future, don’t let off the gas when you go up 2-0, k? Howard, though… Man, that guy is tough to beat when he’s on and the last two games he has been on.
Full recap after the jump:
Friday night I was concerned that the Ducks would come at the...
