Found April 18, 2012 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
In honor of our very own ping-pong bully, Todd Bertuzzi, the creative folk over at The Production Line got on their horses quick and designed a couple of shirts that are just too great not to share.    I laughed hard on the second one.  They're for sale here.  Follow us on Facebook or Chris on Twitter.

Red Wings defend home table

Apparently, tough guys play Ping-Pong. Although the Detroit Red Wings have had recent troubles defending their home ice, they're having no such issue with their rec-room features inside Joe Louis Arena. Todd Bertuzzi reportedly spotted a couple of Nashville Predators players lurking around the Wings' Ping-Pong table on Monday afternoon and promptly dealt with the matter...

Wings Notebook: Lidstrom's future, scoring needs

Detroit -- With the Red Wings on the brink of elimination and captain Nick Lidstrom turning 42 in a little over a week, questions naturally turned to Lidstrom's future prior to Game 5. While most NHL players his age have retired, Lidstrom still seems to have a lot left in the tank. After Thursday afternoon's practice at Joe Louis Arena, Lidstrom was asked if let himself...

What Detroit must do to keep playing

Although the Red Wings said all the right things after their 3 -1 loss to the Nashville Predators on Tuesday, you couldnt help but notice that each player had the "look." Its not a look of desperation or of defeat; its a faraway, empty look of resignation. Detroit is on the brink of being eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs. And while they know what needs to be...

Fire Babcock? Fire Holland? Not bloody likely, nor very smart

Off-day stories continue to roll in via my ever-updated practice post, and I tend to prefer to keep everything on one place so as to not monopolize KK’s front page, but this story from 97.1 the Ticket’s Jamie Samuelssen merits an entry of its own. Samuelssen has found that more than a few Red Wings fans are suggesting that the easiest way for the Wings’ organization to remedy...

Intent to Know: Bertuzzi Does Not Like to Share

Turns out a few of the Predators like to play Ping Pong. Turns out Todd Bertuzzi doesn't like to share with people who think it's funny to assault his teammates.I like to imagine it went something like this:[youtube]bknOCO-sMO0[/youtube]

#Webering, meet, ‘You guys wanna play ping pong, bring your own table’

Given the blather and silliness of last week’s #Webering craze, well…This is plain old weird, but the Production Line’s Michael Petrella took note of an exchange Todd Bertuzzi (ironically enough) had with the Nashville Predators’ players after Tuesday’s practice, as confirmed by MLive’s Ansar Khan and the NHL Network’s Dave Strader: From Red Wings TV producer @Will_Posthumus...

OLD MAN SPORTS – Critical Errors Haunt Detroit Red Wings

OLD MAN SPORTS CRITICAL ERRORS HAUNT DETROIT They said all the right things.  ”We had a good start.” “We created traffic in front of the net.”" We had some good scoring opportunities.”  All the things you are supposed to say when your team has dropped a critical playoff game and put your team in a 3-1 hole with the light at the end of the tunnel getting dimmer...

Red Wings-Predators Game 4 wrap-up: baffling loss leaves Wings in tough—or are they ‘done?’

The Detroit Red Wings’ 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators didn’t exactly leave me—or you—speechless in the quick take, but as fans like you and me ponder what’s going on with a clearly wounded animal heading into Friday night’s game (yes, it might be Nicklas Lidstrom and/or Tomas Holmstrom’s last games as Wings, and yes, we may have already witnessed our last game...

Red Wings lose pivotal Game 4 at home

DETROIT (AP) -- Kevin Klein scored a go-ahead goal 6:25 into the third period and Pekka Rinne made 40 saves, lifting the Nashville Predators to a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night and a 3-1 lead in the first-round Western Conference playoff series. The Predators can eliminate Detroit in Game 5 on Friday night in Nashville. Predators rookie Gabriel Bourque broke...

Red Wings-Predators practice day report in progres: Wings need more shoot, Preds’ Gill improving

The Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators held dueling practices at their respective rinks (albeit with the Predators using their practice facility and the Wings, who face an incredibly steep uphill climb in attempting to force Game 6 and a delay in the commencement of our annuall Nicklas Lidstrom watch), at the same time, on Thursday, and MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that the...

Red Wings Predators Game 4 quick take: self-destruction made easy

At this point, it appears that the Detroit Red Wings may very well play the last game of the 2010-2011 season Friday night in Nashville. The Red Wings out-shot Nashville 41-17 and had every opportunity to score on this year’s version of Dwayne Roloson, circa 2006, in one Pekka Rinne… And instead of bearing down on their chances in the Predators’ zone, three catastrophic defensive...

Red Wings-Predators Preview

The Detroit Red Wings have enough postseason experience to know any comeback starts with one win in a series where the first three games were decided by one goal. The Red Wings are facing their earliest elimination from the playoffs since 2006. Edmonton sent Detroit home after six games; Nashville is trying to do it in five. The Predators will look to advance for a second straight...

Todd Bertuzzi does not share well with others

Red Wings-Predators Game 4 game-day updates: On beating Rinne, Hal Gill and ping pong-gate

The Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators will face off tonight for an all-important Game 4 (7:30 PM EDT, FSD/FS Tennessee/CNBC/CBC/97.1 FM), MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that the Wings’ players received a little break in terms of managing their energy levels, despite the fact that ESPN’s Criag Custance reports that ping-pong gate was in fact an exaggeration(!), and that...

Adam French: Game Three: A Storm of Swords

The Coyotes enter game three in an interesting position. Unlike last season’s disastrous sweep at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings in which the Coyotes continuing their trend were dreadful at home. The past two seasons had seen them lose five straight playoff games at home. Overall this squad has been better on the road and that trend followed this year. The team was 20-14...
