Found April 16, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The Red Wings are on the ice for practice as I write this, with MLive’s Ansar Khan reporting that Nicklas Lidstrom and Ian White are skating together, and’s Brian Hedger reporting that Danny Cleary’s skating on the Datsyuk line, with Gustav Nyquist demoted to the 4th line and Todd Bertuzzi skating with Miller and Abdelkader… And while that should tide you over till the after-practice updates, if you are, as the Globe and Mail’s David Shoalts</a. (via RedWingsFeed) suggests, no longer a Brendan Shanahan fan because he chose not to suspend Shea Weber, Pro Hockey talk’s Joe Yerdon reports that Shanahan told WFAN’s Boomer and Carton in New York that he didn’t suspend Weber because, well…The Wings didn’t lie and tell Shanahan that Henrik Zetterberg was hurt: Continue reading "Honesty may have doomed the Red Wings in terms of Shea Weber’s suspension"

Weber finds net, Preds take 2-1 series edge

DETROIT (AP) -- Shea Weber turned boos into silence with a goal early in the first period and the Nashville Predators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Henrik Zetterberg scored with just under a minute left to pull the Red Wings within one, but they couldn't tie the game to force overtime. Weber, jeered for smashing...

Red Wings respond with toughness in Game 2

Shea Weber started it and Todd Bertuzzi finished it. It wasnt much of a fight as far hockey fights go, but it didnt need to be. If the NHL wasnt going to administer proper justice, then it was up to the Red Wings to dole out a little frontier justice Bertuzzi style. The Red Wings didnt have any other choice. Detroit needed to respond to Webers mugging of Henrik Zetterberg, since...

Predators confident in seeking first ever postseason Joe Louis Arena win

The Nashville Predators head to Detroit for Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals with an 11 am CDT start time on Sunday morning. Shea Weber, celebrating a goal on Friday night, says playing in Detroit brings out the best of the Predators. It is the third time that the Predators and the Red Wings have met in the postseason. Detroit beat Nashville in the first round of the...

Predators nab Game 3 from Red Wings

Shea Weber turned boos into silence with a goal early in the first period and the Nashville Predators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series. Henrik Zetterberg scored with just under a minute left to pull the Red Wings within one, but they couldn't tie the game to force overtime. Weber, jeered for smashing Zetterberg'...

Eklund: "Are you OK with this?" (just the playoffs or is respect completely dead?)

Shanahan will decide on three possible suspensions today. We have already seen one player suspended and many feel Shea Weber should've been suspended. We haven't even played game three of the opening round of playoffs yet. What is going on? Is this just the intensely of the playoffs, eye for an eye stuff? Or are we just seeing a total lack of respect taken to the next...

Gameday Movie Poster & Open Post: Ping & Pong

You know the best thing about the Bertuzzi pong incident yesterday?  (Ignore any article today regarding the truthfulness of it, it's true.  It has to be.)  It took the discussion away from the freaking Shea Weber incident.   Now we can talk about the stuff that matters.  Like the Bertuzzi incident and how he should scare the crap out of Nashville skaters.  Or how  And...

Red Wings hope home ice is still an advantage

The Detroit Red Wings have tied their first-round series with the Nashville Predators. Now, Detroit hopes playing at Joe Louis Arena is as much of an advantage as it has been lately. The Red Wings won an NHL-high 31 home games during the regular season, including a league-record 23 straight. Detroit will host Nashville on Saturday for Game 3 and Tuesday night for Game 4. The...

Head shots and player safety…

We are less than a week into the playoffs and it seems the main story line of the playoffs so far has been head shots and general player safety whether it was the Shea Weber non-suspension or the number of dangerous hits and other ‘goonery’ that took place last night and it probably all started with [...]

NHL shows discipline seriousness through fines... for chirping during a broadcast?

There's been a large to-do recently about discipline in the NHL, from Shea Weber's fine to Matt Carkner and Carl Haglen's suspensions. There's no consistency in discipline, especially when so much of it is based off of whether someone is injured or not. There's no punishing the intent, rather, there's punishing of the outcome. The intent here was to embarrass...

Predators take series lead over Red Wings

Defenseman Shea Weber and Kevin Klein scored goals and netminder Pekka Rinne made them stand up with 41 saves as the visiting Nashville Predators beat the Red Wings 3-2 for their first-ever playoff win in Detroit.Sergei Kostitsyn added a late goal and Rinne withstood a 19-shot, third-period onslaught to give the Predators a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference quarterfinal series...

Bertuzzi has ping pong table removed

Detroit's Todd Bertuzzi apparently didn't want his playoffs opponents having any fun playing ping pong, so he had a table removed.

We’ll Watch The White Doves Go, Bubba. That’s What You See In Houses of the Holy.

It’s a 5-game series now, Bubba.  Three of those games will be at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena.  It’s dirty and the stairs are sticky.  Working people go there and they drink cheap beer sold expensively. You have Vince Gill with a stupid t-shirt, we have a statue of the greatest hockey player in history.  You have two skanks taking stupid pictures pretending to be Shea Weber...

Julie Robenhymer: Day Five: Sitting on the Edge

Game Three is always a pivotal game. A win either puts you one win away from sweeping an opponent or gives you a nice boost of confidence with a 2-1 series advantage. Right now we have two teams sitting on the edge of elimination leaving those lucky enough to love hockey sitting on the edge of our seats. The quadruple-header kicked off in the Motor City and Nashville captain...

Red Wings-Predators Game 3 wrap-up: losing on the margins

The Detroit Red wings’ 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators on Sunday afternoon has left me an angry man this morning, and I feel no need to hide it. I’m angry because—and I mean this with no disrespect intended—I find it baffling that even the Craig Custances, Kevin Allens and Nicholas J. Costonikas of the media world, who I admire, merely lead the tip of a MSM spear whose...

Eklund: Looks like Shana-ban coming for Neal

I am surprised by the NHL's announcement of TWO hearings for James Neal tomorrow morning. Not because he doesn't deserve a suspension for his blindside runs at Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux, but because the league did not suspend Shea Weber for his own incident earlier in the first round of the playoffs. But Neal is a repeat offender under NHL rules, with a suspension...
