DETROIT, MI – The crippled Red Wings were handed their 2nd straight loss on Tuesday night at the hand of the Calgary Flames. It wasn’t so much that the Red Wings played a poor game, the Flames just played better. They did everything that a road team could want in this game. They scored early, [...]

Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek’s funny facemask (PIC)

Earlier in this young NHL season, pictures of the facemask of then-backup Red Wings goalie Thomas McCollum made their internet debut.  McCollum has a liking of the late Chris Farley’s character Tommy Boy. Apparently the sense of humor is a trend among Wings backup netminders as the current Jimmy Howard backup, Petr Mrazek, has a different funny guy on his mask.  The 20-year old...

Red Wings Monday practice post in progress: Tomas Tatar’s on the second line, MacDonald skating

Updated at 11:25 AM: So much for Tatar playing with the "bottom six" forwards: The Red Wings officially recalled Tomas Tatar and Petr Mrazek from Grand Rapids this morning, placing Brendan Smith (shoulder) on the IR to make room for Tatar and swapping out Tom McCollum for Mrazek, and while there is a modicum of good news in the injury department as the Wings' practice...

Red Wings-Flames quick take: inefficient and unacceptable

The Detroit Red Wings knew that they'd be facing a fired-up Flames team that had lost a 3-2 shootout decision after surrendering the game-tying goal in the final seconds thereof on Saturday, and knew that they'd have to push much harder and play much better than they did in the team's awful 4-2 loss to Columbus... And instead, the Wings kinda rolled over and died, but...

Dueling arena banjos: don’t expect Red Wings’ follow-on rink to break ground this year?

The competing storylines about the Red Wings' desire to build a follow-on rink to replace Joe Louis Arena, as part of a $650 million mixed-use development which will be located between Cass and Woodward Avenues just north of I-75, have become something of a contest of late. On Sunday, Crain's Detroit Business's Bill Shea told us that the probably corporately named rink...

Recap: Not Really, Just a Rant

The Red Wings earned all of the zero points they got last night. Calgary came ready to play and Detroit did not. Really, this game was just a replay of the Columbus game from Saturday night. Nothing positive will be said in this post, so if you’re not into that sort of thing, might want to skip this one. Some brutal honesty after the jump: Jimmy Howard is not our problem...

Wings Need Helm

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star, Ask Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock how he can fix what ails his bottom two forward units and he’ll utter a one-word answer. “Helm,” is Babcock’s response. Unfortunately, that situation doesn’t look like it’s about to change anytime soon. The Wings will go into St. Louis Thursday to face the Blues once again minus energy...

Jordin Tootoo Bloodied in Fight With Calgary Flames’ Steve Begin: Video

The Detroit Red Wings turned in another clunker at home on Tuesday night, losing to the Calgary Flames by a 4-1 count, but Jordin Tootoo again gave the Joe Louis Arena crowd at least a little something to cheer about.

Kiprusoff Listed As Day-To-Day

Calgary, AB -- The Calgary Flames announced today that Miikka Kiprusoff (lower body) is day-to-day. "In the second period I felt some discomfort in the lower body area. During the intermission, it was decided that I not return to play. I really believe that this is a short term injury and over the next days, I'll work toward being ready as soon as possible."

Flames-Red Wings Preview

The Calgary Flames insist they are a better team than their record indicates. They can prove it by ending their recent road struggles and prevent the Detroit Red Wings from notching a fourth consecutive home victory Tuesday night. Calgary (1-3-2) took a 2-1 lead over Chicago on Jay Bouwmeester's goal with 35 seconds left Saturday before the Blackhawks tied it with 2.3 seconds...
