Hopelessness In Hockey Town

Playoff hockey and Hockey Town go together like peanut butter and jelly. Detroit has missed the playoffs just once since 1991. Even more impressive is that they have gotten knocked out in the front round just three times since 1995. This year however, the Red Wings are feeling blue.

Red Wings mid-day news: on training camp, the Griffins, the road ahead and a patient Jimmy Howard

Updated 2x at 11:50 AM: Amongst this morning's Red Wings-related news: If there's anyone who needed to hear that the Red Wings are officially committed to holding their summer prospect development camp, their prospect tournament and the big club's main camp in Traverse City, it was the venue that lost at least half of its operating income when the lockout canceled last...

Can the Red Wings hang on and make the playoffs?

It’s a fair question to ask. Detroit is playing for their playoff lives and in danger of missing the postseason for the first time since the 89-90’ season. That’s before Lidstrom made his way to Detroit and back when Head Coach Mike Babcock was 2-years removed from his minor league hockey career that ended in 1988 with the Whitley Warriors. In fact it’s been so long since...

Will the Detroit Red Wings make the playoffs?

Perhaps one of the greatest active streaks in professional sports may be on the line this month.  The Detroit Red Wings have appeared in the Stanley Cup Playoffs each year, for the past 21 years.  As the standings are currently, the Red Wings hold the 8th and final playoff position in the Western Conference.  With [...]

Red Wings-Blackhawks wrap-up and overnight report: splitting the split

The Red Wings can't seem to get their positives to outnumber the negatives dogging them lately, and that has Detroit fighting for its playoff life as the scene shifts to Nashville on Sunday. On Thursday night, the Red Wings were able to eke out a point of a 3-2 shootout loss to San Jose--in a game that they didn't play very well--and despite a much, much better effort in...

Can The Red Wings Keep Their Playoff Streak Alive?

Over the last two decades, The Detroit Red Wings and the Stanley Cup Playoffs have have gone together like peanut butter and jelly. You could not talk about one without mentioning the other. As a matter of fact, with the Red Wings qualifying for the playoffs the last 21 seasons, there is a good portion of the NHL fan base that likely does not remember a season where the Red Wings...

Bobby Hull, Chris Chelios, Ted Lindsay weigh in on the Red Wings-Blackhawks rivalry

The Red Wings and Blackhawks played their last game as Central Division rivals last night, and while the Hawks came out on top (as is usual these days), the New York Times' Ben Strauss suggests that the rivalry won't fade away simply because the Wings are highly likely to move to an Eastern-based conference next season, and Strauss spoke to several of the most prominent figures...

Wings miss valuable point in SO loss to Sharks

DETROIT -- These are challenging days indeed for the Detroit Red Wings. This is a team so accustomed to making the playoffs that rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser literally has no memory of them not doing so. The last time they missed postseason play was in the 1989-90 season. DeKeyser, a Detroit native, was born March 7, 1990. After Thursday night's 3-2 shootout loss to the...

GDT - Game 41: Red Wings (19-15-6) at ‘Hawks (30-5-4) 8:30

After last nights craptastic game in which the Wings managed a charity point, DET remain in 8th, 2 pts behind MIN, and 2 pts in front of PHX. If DET are lucky enough to limp into the post-season,then tonights tilt against CHI is the proverbial playoff preview.  Looking at the'Hawks gaudy statistics, it could be ugly, really friggin ugly. However, after witnessing last nights...

Red Wings Fall in 2nd Night in S/O, 3-2

    Red Wings earn yet another point, but fall yet again in the shootout to the Blackhawks, 3-2. The Red Wings came into this game needing to pull out every point possible, and they came out playing like it. The first period was a big defensive battle from both ends, with an electrifying playoff [...]

Red Wings Recap: 4.12.2013

Another slow start to this one, but that didn’t really matter because Chicago didn’t score until later in the second when Detroit had taken back control of the game. This 3-2 shootout loss means Detroit got 3/8 points against Chicago this season and won zero games. More after the jump: Why can’t this team hold a late lead? If you ask me it’s because our defense...

Detroit Red Wings’ Early Overpayment of Jimmy Howard a Questionable Organizational Decision

The Red Wings’ large new contract for Jimmy Howard was shocking, given the goaltender is still largely unproven. (Kristen Jerkins, Flickr) Tim Thomas, Marc-Andre Fleury, Martin Brodeur, Roberto Luongo, Ilya Bryzgalov, Miikka Kiprusoff, Niklas Backstrom, Ryan Miller, Cam Ward and Henrik Lundqvist. Above is a list of NHL goaltenders who currently make or have made at least $5 million...

Sharks down Red Wings in shootout

Patrick Marleau scored the winner in the shootout and had a short-handed goal early in the game, lifting the San Jose Sharks to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night. Antti Niemi made 27 saves through overtime, while Jimmy Howard stopped 28 shots for Detroit. Niemi got his glove on Niklas Kronwall's slap shot with 44 seconds left in the extra period, giving...

Red Wings-Sharks quick take: yet again, scoring problems doom the Wings

They just can't score. I don't know how else to put it. The Detroit Red Wings dropped a 3-2 shootout decision to the San Jose Sharks, and with four straight road games coming up, starting with tomorrow night's tilt against Chicago (8:30 PM EDT, FSD Plus), the Wings... Either couldn't or wouldn't score. Despite a sterling performance by Howard, shootout excluded...
