Earlier this morning I asked Darren Dreger of TSN about any update on Henrik Zetterberg.
He just responded via Twitter, @kuklaskorner. There will be no sup discipline. View is there was no intended shove.
BEST OF MAXIM
Very, very belatedly: good news on two fronts regarding Red Wings center Henrik Zetterberg’s accidental hit on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Nikita Nikitin. The hit was very similar to the ones that broke the ankles of former Wing Jason Williams and current Wings forward Jan Mursak, but the Columbus Dispatch’s Aaron Portzline reports that Nikitin will be okay...
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings had to fight to extend their franchise record home winning streak to 17 games. Literally.
But in the process of their 3-1 victory, they showed their Central Division rival, the St. Louis Blues (29-13-6), that you have to be a little choosy as to when you fight.
The Wings (33-15-1) were not upset they trailed 1-0 late in the first period, they were...
The Detroit Red Wings received a welcome break from hockey after their 3-2 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, but on Monday, the Wings get back to work wrapping up their 11-games-in-19-nights stretch with a home game against St. Louis on Monday (7:30 PM EST/FSD Plus/WXYT) and a road game against the Canadiens on Wednesday.
The Canadiens, who sit in 11th place in the Eastern...

There are two things I hate in this world. Blackhawks "fans" and Blues "fans" both for the simple fact that they know absolutely nothing about the sport they claim to be real fans of. Yet they spew unintelligible nonsense about the team and city I love.Puck drops at 7:30pm on NBCSN. Eddie...
Green hat or not, the Red Wings are streaking in a great way right now. The Wings beat the St. Louis Blues 3-1 to stay in first place in the Central Division, Western Conference, and entire NHL (yes, all in one night). The win was their 7th straight overall and 17th straight at home, the latter of which is a franchise record.
The Wings started off sluggish, but Brad Stuart sent...
16 straight wins at home! Wings started the game slow and it nearly cost them. Playing down to your apponent will come back to bite you at some point. (It already did against the Islanders) Still, the worst team in the NHL won't be in the Stanley Cup Finals, so that's a plus.Jump for the full recap:
The Blue Jackets were the better team in the first. Detroit had few chances...
DETROIT – The Blue Jackets didn’t care how many consecutive games the Red Wings had won at Joe Louis Arena. Their goal was to make sure they didn’t extend it by one more game, and they nearly did so.
Valtteri Filppula scored in the fourth round of a shootout to give the Detroit Red Wings their 16th straight home victory, 3-2 over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. The 16-game home winning streak tied Detroit with the 1975-76 Boston Bruins for the fourth-longest home winning streak in NHL history.
The Red Wings are on a roll with 16 straight victories at Joe Louis Arena.
PHT: We’ve seen plenty from the Red Wings and Blues this season, but when they get together tonight in Detroit (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN) it’s about as big of a game between the two teams as we’ve seen in a long time.
Take a trip back to May 25, 2010, when Lightning owner Jeff Vinik formally introduced Steve Yzerman as the team's next general manager. Consider all the questions Yzerman fielded that day about the time he spent in Detroit under the tutelage of Hall of Famer Jimmy Devellano and Ken Holland at what Yzerman called Red Wings University.
