No relief in sight for injured Red Wings

DETROIT -- Another day, and no real relief in sight for the injury-plagued Red Wings. In fact, it might be easier to name the players practicing than the ones who weren't. Captain Nick Lidstrom (ankle), Pavel Datsyuk (knee), Danny Cleary, Todd Bertuzzi (groin), Jakub Kindl (upper body), Jimmy Howard (lower body), Jonathan Ericsson (wrist) and Patrick Eaves (jaw, concussion...

Red Wings off-day news: Datsyuk skating; Bertuzzi, Howard, Lidstrom, Kindl, Cleary not

Video: Kronwall levels Flyers W with huge hit

Niklas Kronwall’s hit on Jakub Voracek Tuesday night was one that you could feel through the TV. The Red Wings were playing the Flyers in Detroit and almost midway through the second period Kronwall laid the back of his shoulder into the body of Voracek and absolutely crushed him. Voracek got up immediately following the hit but had very little understanding of where he was...

Red Wings call up Janik (for Kindl), Pearce (for Howard), Conner (for Bertuzzi)

According to MLive’s Ansar Khan, the Detroit Red Wings have officially used all four of their post-trade deadline call-ups as Doug Janik, Jordan Pearce and Chris Conner have been recalled to replace three banged-up Red Wings players—and here’s hoping that Jakub Kindl (“upper-body”), Jimmy Howard (“lower-body”/groin), Todd Bertuzz (groin) and the player that wasn’t...

No suspension or fine for Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall

According to MLive’s Ansar Khan, Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall escaped a suspension or fine for his hit on Jakub Voracek last night: Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall will not be suspended or fined for his hit on Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek on Tuesday, an NHL spokesman said.

Red Wings-Flyers set-up and overnight report: Howe about a necessary win for banged-up Wings?

The Detroit Red Wings face off against a team which they simply don’t know all that well in the Philadelphia flyers tonight (7:00 PM, FSD will air the Mark Howe #2 retirement ceremony in full/CSN Philadelphia/97.1 the Ticket) hoping that the fact that Detroit goes into this game severely undermanned (no Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk, Jimmy Howard, Todd Bertuzzi, Jakub Kindl or...

Red Wings evening news: More on Kronwall, injuries and the power play

Following up this afternoon’s off-day post: we’re (as in you and me are) going to talk about Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall escaping supplementary discipline regarding his hit on Flyers forward Jakub Voracek, and instead of sharing my opinion, as it’s not going to change yours—and trust me, in six years of doing this I’ve learned that people form their opinions when...

Red Wings off-day news: Five more years of Griffins call-ups

The Detroit Red Wings aren’t practicing today, per the team’s Twitter account, but they made a move in sending Chris Conner back down to the Grand Rapids Griffins. The Griffins will be playing against the Texas Stars tonight, and as Paul noted, the Wings renewed their affiliation with their developmental arm for five more seasons: The Grand Rapids Griffins and Detroit Red Wings...

Red Wings-Flyers wrap-up and overnight report: effort and controversy, yes, results, no

The Detroit Red Wings took a midnight flight back to Detroit to engage in two much-needed days of rest and practicing, especially in terms of the Wings’ lengthy list of injured players (see: Todd Bertuzzi, Jonathan Ericsson, Pavel Datsyuk, Jimmy Howard, Jakub Kindl, Nicklas Lidstrom)  after dropping their 5th of their past 7 games via a spirited but unsuccessful 3-2 loss to the...

Brendan Smith

So as I sat in my office this morning watching the sun rise over Lake Michigan...I was angry.Angry that Detroit has dropped three out of the five games against Chicago this season so far.  Angry that I had to suffer through another game listening to the Chicago television crew.  Angry that two more players are injured.  I had started writing a post this morning...but a mix of...

Red Wings-Blackhawks wrap-up and overnight report: owies and home-ice disadvantage

I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Red Wings reassigned Chris Conner to the Grand Rapids Griffins on Sunday evening, and they didn’t call anyone up after losing Jakub Kindl (“upper-body”) early in the 1st period and Jimmy Howard (“lower-body,” probably his groin) after the 1st period ended to what were probably precautionary measures...

Red Wings-Flyers quick take: an ‘A for effort’

I know that the Detroit Red Wings dropped a 3-2 decision to the Philadelphia Flyers because of the usual reasons that have haunted them over their past half-dozen or so games—puckhandling errors by their goaltender, a power play that went 0-for-4 again, plain old fluke bounces and an inability to rally after surrendering a multiple-goal deficit… But for f***‘s ake, I’m a...

Red Wings-Flyers Preview

Injuries are mounting for the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers. Those absences may have contributed to the Red Wings losing sole possession of the Central Division lead. With goaltender Jimmy Howard's status unclear, Detroit attempts to regain first place in the division by sweeping the season series from the Flyers on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center. The Red...
