Luke Glendening was in grade school the first time he set foot in Joe Louis Arena sitting in the stands idolizing Steve Yzerman.
Glendening was there as a player Saturday looking especially good on a third-period penalty kill that helped the Wings past the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2.
Glendening and Drew Miller twice skated the puck into Philly’s zone during that power play eating valuable seconds off the clock in what was at the time a one-goal game. Glendening disrupted a play between Kimmo Timonen and Claude Giroux.
“Glennie he made a great read on that play” coach Mike Babcock said.
Glendening joked he and Miller “were pretty tired out there we got caught out there too long but it was nice to get our number called in that situation.”
Goaltender Jimmy Howard said the kill was huge “especially late in the game. Glens made a great play to pick off that two-on-one play. It’s great to see by a young guy late in a game step up like that.”
The Wings liked what Glendening 24 showed du...

Who are the Detroit Red Wings going to be this season? The team that had no energy or motivation for most of the game against the Phoenix Coyotes, or the team that skated circles around the Philadelphia Flyers? Honestly, I think last week proved we will be seeing both sides of the spectrum for most of the season.
Can’t say I’m surprised considering I have correctly picked the...
Detroit, MI... The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with right wing Anthony Mantha on a three-year entry-level contract. In accordance with club policy, additional details will not be disclosed.
Mantha, 19, was selected by Detroit this past June in the first round (20th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-5, 204-pound forward has gotten off to a fast start this...
Ken Daniels described Pavel Datsyuk's double-takeaway and deke through Zdeno "Not Often Referred to As a Pylon" Chara, plus his seeing-eye pass to Henrik Zetterberg, as proving that Datsyuk can "thread a needle in the dark"...

Pavel Datsyuk is so good at playing hockey that he can make Zdeno Chara look small ...
DETROIT -- After playing two subpar games in a row, the Red Wings changed things up Saturday, leading to a re-energized power play, a rejuvenated Todd Bertuzzi and a 5-2 over the Philadelphia Flyers at Joe Louis Arena.
Bertuzzi, playing on Detroits first line with Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, was a force all night and scored the Wings' first power-play goal of the season...
One can stand around and hope some more practice makes things better or try to force improvement a bit by moving some of the fellows around while preaching: “Let’s get back to Red Wings hockey!”
In no small part because he has a surplus of bodies a team very much in the process of developing young players pushing older ones in Detroit and even young ones in Grand Rapids pushing...
Detroit got a 5-2 win tonight, thanks in large part to the power play suddenly clicking. It was just a matter of time before those chances turned to goals. Howard was solid when needed and the PK was sound when called upon.
More after the jump:
Glendening made his NHL debut and played well. He was really good on the late power play opportunity when Detroit was only up 3-2...
Pavel Datsyuk celebrates with his teammates after scoring in the third period of the Flyers 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.
The Flyers played like the team that wanted it more offensively. They fired 34 shots on Jimmy Howard and the Red Wings.
But the defense and goalie Ray Emery struggled and the offense couldn't finish.
More of what has plagued the Flyers all season continued...
The Red Wings find themselves in a little bit of trouble as the offense has not been on display at all yet in the first four games of this season and the powerplay has still not connected.

Detroit Red Wings No. 1 goalie Jimmy Howard described himself as doubtful to play against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. On the bright side he also said his bruised hand isn’t a serious injury earning a day-to-day label.
Another bright side is that Jonas Gustavsson looked very sharp against the Boston Bruins earning Detroit a 3-2 win. Then again it’s probably not the...
Very briefly, as the groom's trying to sleep in one bed and I'm typing on the other:
There is good news and some bad news regarding tonight's game between the Red Wings and Flyers (7 PM EDT, FSD/CSN Philly/97.1 FM and the game is the Wings' "Pink the Rink" outing to raise funds for breast cancer research): Continue reading "Surprise Red Wings overnight...
Todd Bertuzzi took a nasty spill during the third period of Monday’s Red Wings-Bruins matinee in Boston, crashing into Tuukka Rask before faceplanting on the ice. He was a little shaken up but managed to get up under his own power and head into the locker room for repairs.
I think it’s safe to say the ice won this round.
