Game 1 of the Wings/Predators series ended in brutality usually only attempted by those heroes competing in the squared circle. That's why this mashup of the incident mixed with the legendary voice of the WWF WWE's Jim Ross was the next logical step for the internet to take.
Weber escaped the incident without suspension and just a fine of $2,500. He also of...
DETROIT (AP) -- Shea Weber turned boos into silence with a goal early in the first period and the Nashville Predators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Sunday to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series.
Henrik Zetterberg scored with just under a minute left to pull the Red Wings within one, but they couldn't tie the game to force overtime.
Weber, jeered for smashing...
The Nashville Predators head to Detroit for Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals with an 11 am CDT start time on Sunday morning.
Shea Weber, celebrating a goal on Friday night, says playing in Detroit brings out the best of the Predators.
It is the third time that the Predators and the Red Wings have met in the postseason. Detroit beat Nashville in the first round of the...
Game 3 was a welcome sight to many Detroit Red Wings fans. After securing a win in their opponent’s building on Friday night, the series and games 3 and 4 shifted to the friendly confines of the Joe Louis Arena. It’s a place where the Wings had won 23 straight home games in a row this season, and filled with 20,066 fans again on Sunday for the 70th consecutive time. It was also...
Shanahan will decide on three possible suspensions today. We have already seen one player suspended and many feel Shea Weber should've been suspended. We haven't even played game three of the opening round of playoffs yet. What is going on?
Is this just the intensely of the playoffs, eye for an eye stuff? Or are we just seeing a total lack of respect taken to the next...
You know the best thing about the Bertuzzi pong incident yesterday? (Ignore any article today regarding the truthfulness of it, it's true. It has to be.) It took the discussion away from the freaking Shea Weber incident. Now we can talk about the stuff that matters. Like the Bertuzzi incident and how he should scare the crap out of Nashville skaters. Or how And...
The Red Wings are on the ice for practice as I write this, with MLive’s Ansar Khan reporting that Nicklas Lidstrom and Ian White are skating together, and NHL.com’s Brian Hedger reporting that Danny Cleary’s skating on the Datsyuk line, with Gustav Nyquist demoted to the 4th line and Todd Bertuzzi skating with Miller and Abdelkader…
And while that should tide you over till...
It’s a 5-game series now, Bubba. Three of those games will be at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena. It’s dirty and the stairs are sticky. Working people go there and they drink cheap beer sold expensively. You have Vince Gill with a stupid t-shirt, we have a statue of the greatest hockey player in history. You have two skanks taking stupid pictures pretending to be Shea Weber...
Game Three is always a pivotal game. A win either puts you one win away from sweeping an opponent or gives you a nice boost of confidence with a 2-1 series advantage. Right now we have two teams sitting on the edge of elimination leaving those lucky enough to love hockey sitting on the edge of our seats.
The quadruple-header kicked off in the Motor City and Nashville captain...
DETROIT The Detroit Red Wings may be down 2-1 in their first-round series against the Nashville Predators, but they really don't have a ton of room for improvement.
It's just a few little things that are making the difference between winning and losing penalties, scoring first and faceoffs.
Sure, the penalty thing is the one area that really needs to be better but it...
Pekka Rinne is one of the main reasons some fantasy poolies are smiling but far from the only one. Other goalies have stepped up and delivered in these playoffs honestly. Today's edition again focuses on what has been good and not so good after five days and nights of postseason action.
What we decided to do was tough on the surface but actually pretty...

As the Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators prepare to face off tonight in Game 4 (7:30 PM EDT, FSD/FS Tennessee/CBC/CNBC/97.1 FM), which may very well determine whether the purported seven-game slugfest between Detroit and Nashville will in fact go the distance, or will, instead, be a short and disappointing series for Red Wings fans…
Aside from some potential line changes...
