Wondering how you're going to finish all that leftover turkey after Thanksgiving? Maybe you can share it with friends while watching the Bruins take on the Red Wings. The two Original Six teams will face off on "Black Friday," and the NHL has partnered with Discover to unveil a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in an effort to promote the game. The hope is that the league can generate some publicity for the Bruins-Red Wings "Thanksgiving Showdown" in a similar manner to how the league gets buzz around New Year's Day for the Winter Classic. "We are looking...

DETROIT -- The Red Wings got some much-needed good news Wednesday -- defenseman Niklas Kronwall is fine.
Kronwall appeared a little dazed after taking a hit from Minnesota's Mikko Koivu at the end of Tuesday night's game. Kronwall fell to the ice and Koivu was able to pass to Devin Setoguchi for the overtime game-winning goal.
But Wednesday, Kronwall participated in full...
Detroit’s lost 5 straight. Even though I thought they played excellent for the time they were not on the PK last night, they still didn’t pull it through. Some people are calling for major changes to be made. Blow it up! We don’t want to be Calgary and live in mediocre land! This isn’t a playoff team! Stuff like that. I mean look at this, usually rational...
from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Coach Mike Babcock said they did some good things, such as holding the Flames to 10 shots through two periods. But that was far outweighed by the bad.
“You can let it snowball on you if you’re mentally soft,” Babcock said. “No one else is going to look after you, you got to look after yourself. You got to dig in and put a stop to it. It’s going...
Red Wings coach Mike Babcock cited the old insanity definition Wednesday when discussing his latest line combinations.
The Wings called up Nyquist, 22, from the minors on Monday in hopes he can help turn around a four-game losing streak during which the Wings have scored just four goals.
The Red Wings talked extensively about getting back to basics before losing, 4-1, on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena to Calgary, the latest in a string of one-goal performances. They talked about it again afterward, as neither Henrik Zetterberg nor Pavel Datsyuk, the team's superstar forwards, had a shot on net after 40 minutes and only combined for three in the third period.
I'm so glad I didn't waste a Defiance post on that. Seemed like the team just wanted to coast around and have the puck go in because they're the Red Wings and they should beat the Flames. As you can see, that wasn't the case. Most of the Red Wings did not skate hard. Those that did made terrible decisions with the puck. Kiprusoff was rarely challenged. I keep hearing...
DETROIT – Mike Commodore will officially begin his 11th NHL season when he makes his Red Wings’ debut against one of his former teams, the Calgary Flames, tonight at Joe Louis Arena.
“I actually didn't think I was playing toda...
Three stars from Tuesday's Wild-Red Wings game:
The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenseman Brendan Smith from Grand Rapids of the AHL.
If the Red Wings really are going to join the Eastern Conference next season, you'd better start boning up on their new rivals. Two of the better teams in the East square off tonight as Buffalo hosts Philadelphia at 7:30 on Versus.
