Found March 09, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
Half way there, and DET are sitting in 4th. After the start to this season, who'd a thunk it?  That is the good news anyways.  In the crosstown traffic that is the WC, the Wings are only 4 points from 11th position. The problematic bit is that DET are the road warrior the rest of the month;  8 road games versus just 3 at home.  April is a little better, 7 road, 6 at JLA.  The ugly bit is that DET are 3-4-2 on the road. Better hold on, it could get bumpy. Continue reading "GDT - Game 25: Red Wings (12-8-4) at Blue Jackets (8-12-4) 2:00"

Wings' weekend swept by Blue Jackets

DETROIT -- If the Detroit Red Wings miss the playoffs for the first time in 22 seasons, they'll likely have their neighbors to the south to blame. The Columbus Blue Jackets, who came into Sunday's game 14th in the Western Conference with 22 points, beat the Wings for the second straight night, 3-2 in a shootout. For those scoring at home, the Wings went 1-3-1 against the...

Kindl, Emmerton score in Wings shutout win

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have some excellent hockey players but they don't have a Steven Stamkos or a Sidney Crosby. You don't get those players when you don't have the No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft, which the Wings haven't had because they've made the playoffs 21 straight seasons. Crosby and Stamkos currently lead the league in scoring....

Red Wings’ Niklas Kronwall tells Craig Custance why the NHLPA accepted NHL’s realignment proposal

Very interesting stuff: Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall spoke to ESPN's Craig Custance for an ESPN Insider blog entry, and the Red Wings' NHLPA player representative told Custance that the NHL provided the PA with multiple mock schedules which illustrated the travel teams would have to face, satisfying the players at least to the point that they chose to consent to the...

The Blue Jackets Could be Heavy Sellers

With the removal of Scott Howson as the Columbus Blue Jackets General Manager (GM) and the hiring of drafting and development guru Jarmo Kekalainen to replace Howson, the philosophy of patience could have been replaced with one of a major upheaval, albeit one with Kekalainen’s stamp of youth and playing the game at a high rate of speed, both physically and mentally. One seismic...

Foligno sees the value in visors

I know its a personal choice, but for me it was an easy one. I wanted to save my eyes; thats pretty much it. That was Columbus Blue Jackets winger Nick Foligno, explaining in the simplest terms his choice to wear a visor when he plays hockey. For him, its all about trying to avoid a catastrophic eye injury that in most cases is avoidable if a visor is worn. My eyes are something...

Red Wings vs Blue Jacket Recap: 3.9.2013

Red Wings didn't give much effort today and fell to the Blue Jacket 3-0. This is the first time in the history of ever that Columbus won a season series against the Wings and they deserved it. We're missing a bunch of guys that probably shouldn't be on the team anyways (minus Helm, of course) and they're missing a few of their best players but still destroyed us....

GDT - Game 26: Red Wings (12-9-4) host Blue Jackets (9-12-4) 5:00

Yesterdays tilt with the BJ's was a gawd-awful mess.  Really, how does a man get abused by BJ's?  Uncle Mike obviously doesn't know either, as this is the second occurance of the sky falling:   “I thought we were bad,'' Babcock said. “Why was that? Was that mental prep? Was that the coach never got any messages across? Lack of preparation? Did we practice...

Blue Jackets 3, Red Wings 2, SO

Ryan Johansen and Matt Calvert scored in the shootout and the streaking Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 on Sunday to complete a home-and-home sweep. Derick Brassard and R.J. Umberger had goals in regulation, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 20 saves through overtime for Columbus, which has won five straight. The Blue Jackets topped the Red Wings 3-0 in Columbus on...

Calvert lifts Blue Jackets over Canucks in OT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Matt Calvert carried the puck almost from end to end, twice avoiding opposing players, before skating to the slot and scoring on a rising wrist shot to give the Columbus Blue Jackets a 2-1 overtime victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. Calvert took a pass from Fedor Tyutin deep in the defensive zone and chipped the puck along the right boards...

Red Wings-Blue Jackets set-up and overnight report: second half begins; Griffins win ‘Purple Game’

The Detroit Red Wings begin the second half of their 48-games-in-99-nights demolition derby with a pair of games against the Columbus Blue Jackets today (2 PM EST, FSD/FS Ohio/97.1 FM) and tomorrow (5 PM EDT--yeah, spring forward, bleh--FSD/FS Ohio/AM 1270), and the Wings spent Friday's post-practice media availability suggesting that, all things considered, they're happy...

Wings/Blue Jackets Recap

George picked a good day to deal with a computer issue with his new laptop so you have me with this recap. I am going to make like Mike Babcock during his first period timeout and say nothing. That's it, I have nothing to say about this game but on the other hand you may have a lot to talk about, so the floor is yours.
