Red Wings off-day news: Wings understand that Western Conference supremacy is fleeting

The Detroit Red Wings took a three-hour flight back to Detroit this afternoon, choosing to rest in Phoenix instead of taking an overnight flight home after their 3-2 shootout win over the Phoenix Coyotes for sleep’s sake.

Red Wings-Blue Jackets quick take: we knew it’d be ugly

No amount of roses or makeup would make the Detroit Red Wings’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets any more or less a pig of a win, but we knew this one was going to be ugly going in. The Wings had lead to shake out of their legs after their road trip, they had little motivation and were playing a team that very literally has nothing less to lose—and is playing...

Eric Engels: Mediocre Core of East, Concussed Goalies, Price Contract, Shootout Blues

Audience Commentary

Last night the Coyotes played the redwings and as always it was one interesting game. The best part of the game might have been the guy sitting in the row in front of us. He was obnoxiously cheering for Detroit and it was pretty obvious he didn't know anything about the team (not that uncommon 'round here). Later he admits to being an LA King fan. Ohhh, that explains the...
