Found May 06, 2013 on The Detroit Sports Site:
Damien Brunner put the exclamation point on an absolutely thrilling Game 4 between the Detroit Red Wings and Anaheim Ducks, slapping home a rebound in overtime to give the Wings a 3-2 victory. Brunner made an egregious turnover in the third period of Game 3, coughing the puck up in his own zone on the power play to allow Ryan Getzlaf to bury a huge goal. He saw less playing time than any other Wing on Monday, too, relegated to the bench for all but 11:16 — the least of any Detroit player. But Brunner redeemed himself in overtime, knotting the series at 2-2, with Game 5 set for Wednesday night in Anaheim. Here’s Brunner’s game-winner in GIF form, courtesy of Guyism.com (We’ll have the video for you when it’s available):

Last night during the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 victory of the Anahemim Ducks in Game 5, there was a stoppage in play as the Detroit ice crew had to fix some of the glass. For whatever reason, the female red wings fan above wanted to shake her boobs in an effort to catch the attention of the refs and crew. She was also able to get her friend next to her into the action. The girls were...

Wings get big game out of Jimmy Howard

DETROIT Sometimes one game, one solid performance, one game changing moment can transform the course of an athletes career. Melodramatic, perhaps, but Jimmy Howard not only needed a win in a must-win situation, he needed to be the difference maker. We can harp all we want on the Red Wings rookies coming of age Monday night, in Detroits gripping 3-2 overtime victory against Anaheim...

Abdelkader gets two-game suspension

DETROIT Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader's season could be over. The NHL suspended Abdelkader two games for his hit on Anaheim defenseman Toni Lydman during the second period of Saturday's Game 3. Abdelkader received a five-minute charging major and a game misconduct. In a video explaining the additional punishment, NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan...

These Wings are something old and new

DETROIT -- During the Detroit Red Wings' glorious run of four Stanley Cups in the span of 12 years, some of the best and most competitive hockey I witnessed happened during practice. The Wings were a deep and extremely talented bunch back then, boasting a center-ice corps of Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov and Kris Draper. The team was a combination of scintillating...

VIDEO: The hit that got Abdelkader suspended for two games

Justin Abdelkader will be lost for the Red Wings for Games 4 and 5 after a devastating hit he left on Anaheim’s Toni Lydman in the second period of Game 3 Saturday night. After the game, Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock didn’t think any suspension was in order for Abdelkader suggesting it was a shoulder to shoulder hit with no contact being made to the head. “To me, I watched...

About the Abdelkader suspension, penalizing results and the Red Wings’ tasks at hand

Okay, so Justin Abdelkader's hit on Toni Lydman resulted in a predictable probable concussion and, as is customary in Wings-Ducks series, a 2-game suspension (and quite the meandering from one Mitch Albom, which was a good read, honestly), as well as a healthy discussion of the art of hitting in the Shanaban-era NHL. After Sunday's worth of continued defense of the hit...

Niklas Kronwall levels Kyle Palmieri with center ice hit

About 13 minutes into the first period of game four of the Anaheim Ducks-Detroit Red Wings 1st round playoff series, Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall was up to his old tricks.  Kronwall caught Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri with his head down in the neutral zone and “Kronwalled” him.  The hit was a 100% legal hit and no penalty was called.  Kronwall does a great job of leading...

Nik Kronwall Kronwalls Ducks’ Kyle Palmieri (VIDEO)

Red Wings defenseman Nik Kronwall rudely welcomed the Ducks’ Kyle Palmieri back to Detroit Monday evening during Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinal.  Palmieri, now 22, played for the U.S. National Development Team from 2007-2009, so he’s probably pretty familiar with the city.  Just to make sure, Kronwall put him on his backside to make sure. The proper term for...

Pavel Datsyuk scores filthy game-tying goal

I can say that this goal was even prettier in person.  Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk crossed over Anaheim Ducks defenseman Lucas Sbisa to give himself the extra room to take the puck to the outside.  Then as he was streaking down the wing, fired a perfect shot, short-side high glove to tie the game.  The puck was in and out so quickly that the stadium was certain that...

Wings' Samuelsson in for Abdelkader

Mikael Samuelsson is replacing forward Justin Abdelkader on the Detroit Red Wings first line for Monday's Game 4. Abdelkader is out because of the two-game suspension he received Sunday afternoon after hitting Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman.

Justin Abdelkader Suspended 2 Games for Hit on Toni Lydman: Video

Justin Abdelkader missed the final period-plus of the Detroit Red Wings’ Game 3 loss to Anaheim after being ejected. He’ll now sit out Games 4 and 5, as well.

Shanahan explained his decision: “Abdelkader skates a considerable...

GDT - WCQF Game 4: Red Wings (1-2) at Ducks (2-1) 8:00

1-3, 5-4, 0-4.  Granted, three games isn't the biggest sample.  5 goals = win, 1 goal and 0 goals = loss. If 5 is the outlier, DET are in really deep trouble. A 2.00 G/G average won't win many contests.  DET finished the season averaging only 2.54 G/G (20) - - scoring woes have plagued DET all year, that is nothing too shocking.  It was DET's defense that carried...
