Twas the Night Before Wings-mas

Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom is ranked by most as one of the best defenseman in the history of the NHL. But Lidstrom's status in Detroit ranks even higher at this time of year, when he becomes St. Nick. Former Red Wings defenseman Larry Murphy, a.k.a. Uncle Murph, tells us all about it in a very funny reading of "Twas the Night Before Wings-mas." Can you come...

Red Wings overnight report: recharging batteries, the Hemsky-Winter complex and pre-Christmas Mule

The Detroit Red Wings had hoped to return from their 3-game swing through Western Canada humming Meatloaf’s “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” but instead, the Wings began their Christmas break when Red Bird III landed at Metro Airport just before 4:30 in the morning on Friday, most likely dropping the f-bombs from Tenacious D’s “The Road” (NSFW link) instead. After playing...

Murph’s ‘Twas the Night Before Wingsmas,’ erm, Christmas…

Via RedWingsFeed, here’s a holiday classic in the making from Fox Sports Detroit: while Mark Howe’s promoting the Winter Classic, FSD found the best Wings alumnus around and made Larry “Uncle Murph” Murphy recite, “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with a Red Wings twist. Murph told Ken Daniels that it only took him five takes to get it down (and he was probably compensated...

All the Red Wings want for Christmas is, well, Christmas

Despite suggestions to the contrary, the Detroit Red Wings’ organization and players are pretty flexible in terms of accommodating requests from the NHL to engage in the kinds of promotional activities which involve playing on holidays or sloughing through particularly nasty travel schedules to give the league a TV ratings boost, but the Wings have consistently stated that there...

Calgary 3, Detroit 2: Conklin, Wings' offense flame out

Red Wings Christmas morning report: A wonderful fundraiser and hoping for a Lidstrom year to grow on

On Christmas morning, or what is more like when kids tend to wake mom and dad up and ask, “Can we open our presents yet?” and mom and dad say, “It’s 4 AM!” one might become a little philosophical, and the stories I’m about to present you could have been tossed off with a particularly moralistic bent, especially as a certain former teammate of this morning’s protagonist...

One more Red Wings-Canucks thing…The league agrees with Howard…

The points of controversy during the Detroit Red Wings’ 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks involved a hit for which Niklas Kronwall was neither fined nor suspended and a goal after which Jimmy Howard was not penalized for punching one Jannik Hansen, but just when you thought we were going to put the controversy behind us, ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun (via RedWingsFeed) reports that the...

Detroit Red Wings G Jimmy Howard latest victim of goalie crashing

Toronto Maple Leafs’ James Reimer and Buffalo Sabres’ Ryan Miller both got shelved for a bit this season as victims of goalie crashing. Brian Gionta collided with Reimer while Milan Lucic barreled through Miller in open ice. It would have been a shame if Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings came out seriously injured after last night. Twitter erupted and some were...

Ryan Miller, Jimmy Howard and players entering the gator pit

There are a few goaltenders rather displeased with the NHL right now about offensive players intentionally barreling into them while they reside inside the cozy confines of their crease. These few goalies believe they're not being protected enough. To those goaltenders, we'd offer the following advice. Get hurt. Badly. The NHL has shown, time and again, that it responds...
