Red Wings off-day news: Chris Conner sent down to Grand Rapids

The Detroit Red Wings received Monday off to say goodbye to their fathers after their 3-2 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, but one Red Wing, Chris Conner, is instead saying goodbye to his parents in Westland and heading down to Grand Rapids for more playing time (as Jan Mursak’s about to come off the injured reserve list). Here’s the Griffins’ press release...

Red Wings evening news: halfway down, awards talk, a Sharp update and smart quips from Friedman

The Detroit Red Wings flew to Long Island on Monday afternoon to wrap up their (technically speaking) four-game road trip against the Islanders, who, via the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff and Newsday’s Arthur Staple, will probably start Kevin Poulin, not Evgeni Nabokov, against Detroit on Tuesday. Tomorrow’s game marks the Wings’ 42nd, and as’s Bill Roose...

Red Wings LW Datsyuk to sit out Tuesday's game

Detroit Red Wings star forward Pavel Datsyuk will sit out Tuesday's game against the New York Islanders due to a lower-body injury. Datsyuk, who is riding a four-game points streak, said he hopes to be back for Thursday's game. He has been on a team since mid-November, amassing 11 goals and 22 assists in 22 games. For the season, Datsyuk has 13 goals and 43 points in 41 games.

You're Killing Your Father, Larry!

Bad night for Detroit sports last night.  Nevermind the fact that the Lions actually had a chance of winning that game if their corners could catch a damn cold let alone a football.  But the Detroit loss stings me more than the usual regular season loss.  I bet it stings them too...I hope it does.The first 20 minutes of last night, Detroit made Toronto look like a Cup contender...

Red Wings-Islanders quick take: no excuses for an ‘excuse game’

The Detroit Red Wings had the excuses lined up before tonight’s 5-1 loss to the New York Islanders, whose pedigree is apparently greater than that of the playoff-bound Maple Leafs and Blackhawks because they can withstand Detroit’s attempts to rally from multiple-goal deficits without blinking an eyelash. The Fathers’ Trip was over. The Wings were coming off the emotional...

Red Wings-Blackhawks quick take: An enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in an OT win

Dear Gord, that was bizarre. The Detroit Red Wings’ 3-2 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks, if we are to believe the NBC Sports network, was the result of nothing more than multiple un-called penalties to Tomas Holmstrom on the 2-1 goal, a penalty shot that may or may not have been a puck in the net by Chicago as Holmstrom was, bafflingly, the the last man back among Jonathan...

Red Wings-Blackhawks wrap-up and overnight report: Wings out-Hawk Chicago

The Detroit Red Wings earned a measure of redemption for two nights’ worth of self-inflicted wounds, to the tune of a pair of 2-0 deficits and two penalty shots called against the Wings in their loss to Toronto and Sunday night’s Fathers’ Trip finale, but the Wings team that shook off its poor start in Chicago was more willing to get its hands dirty in out-grinding and out...

GDT - Game #41:  Red Wings at ‘Hawks (7:30)

Game 41 tonight at Chicago marks the midway point of the season, and suddenly both the ‘Hawks (24-13-4) and Wings (25-14-1) are looking up in the standings to see STL (24-12-5) atop the Central Division.  Missed last nights 4-3 loss at TOR as I was watching Drew Brees dismantle the Lion’s secondary.  Nice to see the Wings hold true to form, as they have now alternated wins...

Red Wings' Datsyuk (lower body) sits vs. Isles

Detroit Red Wings leading scorer Pavel Datsyuk is sitting out against the New York Islanders because of an undisclosed lower body injury that doesn't appear to be serious.
