Sportsnet posted quite the clip hyping the "Red Wings and Henrik Zetterberg vs. Jonathan Toews' frustration" angle heading into Game 3 between Detroit and Chicago this evening (7:30 PM EDT, NBCSN/CBC/97.1 FM, post-game on FSD). Toews! Zetterberg! Babcock! Kronwalled? Not likely, but TSN duly noted that the Hawks possess a 9-1-and-1 record at Joe Louis Arena since 2010, and that's plain old scary.

Blackhawks’ Joathan Toews irked by Red Wings’ physical play

The Detroit Red Wings elevated just about every aspect of their game during their 4-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday, but while Henrik Zetterberg told the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus that his somewhat personal battle with Jonathan Toews (and more than a few Blackhawks who tried to take the heads off of Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Valtteri Filppula, among others...

Red Wings-Blackhawks Game 2 wrap-up: so much for the two-game series

The time between the quick take, the Toews entry and the time that this recap hits the web has been an uncomfortable one for me (the norovirus apparently has death throes), so I feel like being a smarmy *#$%@&, and I'm gonna be one. Jonathan Toews most certainly let it be known that his team was hacked, whacked, hooked, held, touched, looked at and otherwise thought of in...

The Twenty-Cent Opera And Not-So-Secret Biases

Jonathan Toews is a broken little boy.  The past couple of days he has gone to bed muttering to hiimself, when not biting his pillow, and waking up needing to change his sheets.  He is haunted by his personal boogeyman, Henrik Zetterberg, whose defensive coverage of Toews has been so suffocating, the lack of oxygen affecting "Tazer's" brain and emotional stability...

Wings don't get too excited about improbable series lead

DETROIT The Detroit Red Wings are in a place where nobody expected them to be -- up 2-1 over the mighty Chicago Blackhawks. Following up their win in Game 2 with a 3-1 victory in Game 3 at Joe Louis Arena on Monday, the Wings still don't consider this series over by any means. "Let's be honest, we haven't done anything yet," Wings coach Mike Babcock said...

The wrong question to ask the wrong coach

The Vancouver Sun's Cam Cole attended Sunday's Red Wings practice, and he reports that a member of the media who may or may not go nameless, depending on what transpires over the next 12-24 hours, asked Wings coach Mike Babcock whether the frustrated and grumpy Jonathan Toews will rebound to lead the Blackhawks in Game 3. This question was apparently not well-received by...

Patrick Kane goal and did Henrik Zetterberg take a dive?

Nice goal by Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane. One of the lone bright spots in tonight's game for the Blackhawks. The Redwings proved to be the better team again for a second game in a row. If your a fan of either team, you might not be the one to ask. Watch the video, I want to see if anyone else is seeing this as well. It appears that Detroit forward Henrik Zetterberg...

Brendan Smith Scores Game-Winner in Game 2 Off Henrik Zetterberg Pass: Video

Brendan Smith might have been the goat of the Detroit Red Wings’ Game 1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. The young defenseman redeemed himself in a big way on Saturday, playing a solid game in his own end and netting the eventual game-winner. With the Wings and Blackhawks tied at one late in the second period (and the Wings controlling the play), Smith jumped into the rush and...

Red Wings’ Ken Holland, Henrik Zetterberg weigh in on the art of Kronwalling

TSN posted quite the feature on Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's status as a cult hero and then some in Detroit, and perhaps as a villain in other cities, and HockeyWebCaster uploaded it to YouTube: And yes, Kronwall insists that he's trying to keep things as clean as he can while leading the Wings' defense and trying to keep the physical edge to his game...

Detroit Red Wings make statement in Game 2 win over Chicago Blackhawks

 It is commonly said that regular season success doesn't always translate to success in the postseason in the NHL.  The Detroit Red Wings proved that with a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals. It was the first time that the Blackhawks had lost to the Red Wings in regulation since April 10, 2011.  Since then, the Blackhawks...
