If I'm Dan Cleary...

"If I’m Dan Cleary, I worry about forecheck, penalty killing, getting to the net.  I don’t spend any time thinking about goal-scoring. You’d be amazed at how everything works out from there." --Mike BabcockThat quote comes to us from Khan(!) this morning.  We know that everyone's favorite Newfie is having some trouble producing this year...and hell, Chris...

Is it too late to ‘Vote for Jimmy?’

With less than a month left in the NHL’s All-Starfan balloting, Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard, who was left off the ballot, is way down near the bottom of the “leader board,” but that hasn’t stopped WRIF 101.1 FM’s Meltdown from teaming up with the Wings to engineer a last-minute surge of fan support: The Edmonton Journal’s Jim Matheson, via a Q and A session with...

Jimmy Howards rumbles with St. Louis Blues Player

Red Wings-Blues quick take: repetitive errors and the paper confidence tiger

The Detroit Red Wings dropped a 3-1 decision to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night because the Wings chose not to learn lessons from their 4-2 loss to Colorado on Sunday, at least until it was too late for anything other than a a final flourish: for the second game in a row, the Wings were out-worked, out-hustled and ground down by a team that paid just a little more attention...

Realignment plan Wings can live with

DETROIT -- Sooner or later they had to do something, and they finally did. In what many believe to be a bold move, the NHL Board of Governors on Monday approved a realignment plan that creates two seven team conferences and two eight team conferences that are geographically based and stress conference rivalries. Pending final approval from the NHL Players' Association, the...

GDT - Game #26:  Red Wings at Blues (7:30)

An important Central Division tilt tonight.  The Red Wings (16-8-1) are three points out of the Central lead, with three games in hand on CHI.  The Blues (14-9-3) trail DET by only two points. Both teams play a similar game.  Each are excellent at even strength (DET 3rd, STL 2nd), and are among the league leaders in GA/G.  While DET’s PP unit swills some whiskey now and again...

Red Wings' Valtteri Filppula OK after cut to leg, may play Tuesday

Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula needed stitches to close the gash but said today he feels fine and may play against the Blues Tuesday if he can get his skate adjusted so it doesn't run against the wound.

Time to shake blues from previous loss

The loss has lingered for three weeks since the Red Wings last played the Blues. The Wings got shown up in that Nov. 15 game, dropping a 2-1 decision as a result of being badly outplayed after the first period and failing to convert on six power plays. A few days later, the Wings began a seven-game winning streak, but that ended Sunday at Colorado after a similarly flat performance.
