DET (5-2-0) came out of the gate flying to a 5-0 record (18 GF, 7GA), but they have dropped their last two in uninspiring fashion. After getting abused in DC (7-1), DET got their asses handed to them by a winless BJ team (4-1). Its not so bothersome that the Wings have been outscored 11-2 in the past two games. Much more troubling is DET’s lack of response after the Caps game. You could reasonably argue that aside from Helm and Datsyuk, the CBJ outworked DET by a wide margin. Said Babcock: It was a disappointing effort. Obviously, the preparation (from) our coaching staff, we didn’t do a good enough job. The players didn’t do a good enough job. “No excuse for what happened tonight.” As MO astutely pointed out in another thread, this was a theme heard entirely too often down the stretch last season. I’ll go so far to say it is largely responsible for the coaching staff shakeup in the off-season. Though the season is barely started, I’ll not play the Da...

DETROIT -- What a difference a week makes.
Seven days ago, the Red Wings were cruising along with a perfect 5-0 record. They had back-to-back shutouts, balanced scoring and a favorable schedule, which put them in their customary spot -- at or near the top of the NHL standings.
Two losses later -- to the elite-level Capitals and the hapless Blue Jackets, by a combined score of 11...
That’s what Bob McKenzie tweeted today, as reposted by the Detroit Sports Site.
The Detroit Red Wings placed forward Fabian Brunnstrom on waivers Sunday, TSN’s Bob MacKenzie reported. Any NHL team can now claim Brunnstrom — if he clears, he’s likely headed to Grand Rapids for a spell. No corresponding roster move was announced.
I had to check my watch, twice, to make sure...
Popular Detroit Red Wings defender and twitter personality Mike Commodore was very confused after a high volume of negativity from Los Angeles Kings fans on Twitter yesterday.
The off-season acquisition of the Red Wings says he accidentally clicked “retweet” on an original tweet that questioned the integrity of L.A. as a hockey market.
Here’s the screen grab:
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Quick update from the Red Wings' morning skate: Patrick Eaves and Fabian Brunnstrom are out tonight as the Wings take on the Wild at XCel Energy Center.
One of the best ways to stop a losing streak is to play a team you've had great success against. For Detroit, that team would be the Minnesota Wild. Detroit has beaten the Wild 28 times in 41 meetings with only 6 regulation losses. That's domination. But the past is in the past and only today matters. Tonight's lineup:Forwards:Zetterberg - Datsyuk - ClearyFilppula - Franzen...
DETROIT – The Red Wings placed forward Fabian Brunnstrom on waivers today.
The move gives general manager Ken Holland the option to recall a player from Grand Rapids, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, if he chooses.
Tonight Detroit faces the team who’s knocked them out of the playoffs the past two years, San Jose. The fact that Detroit’s lost to those not-so-loveable losers the past two seasons certainly irks me, but the fact that the Sharks couldn’t even do something worthwhile with the series victory makes it sting even more.
Prior to losing to the Sharks, if you beat Detroit in...
Having lost two games in a row, one to a very talented opponent and the other to a lesser foe, the Red Wings see the Sharks as a great chance for to rebound.
A pair of teams that have been heading in opposite directions lately will get together tonight, as the Detroit Red Wings host the San Jose Sharks at Joe Louis Arena.
