Found March 04, 2013 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
Obviously I disagree with Mike Babcock here, but I'm biased towards winning, so maybe my opinion doesn't matter. What do you all think about his latest comments regarding Tatar and the second line?

Boy howdy, Red Wings Nation is restless, and it’s angry at Babcock

Given fans' reactions to an exchange at the very end of Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's press conference, conducted after the Wings' 2-1 shootout loss to Chicago--as I happened to mention on Twitter--you'd think that Mike Babcock signed his epitaph. 97.1 the Ticket's Mike Stone asked Babcock if he'd thought about placing Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson alongside...

Red Wings overnight report: which direction do the Red Wings face this morning?

After the Detroit Red Wings dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, I weighed in with my dissatisfaction, and then, in the comments section, so did you. Things apparently got heated enough that my quip about Mike Babcock's line machinations was taken as a personal attack, and if I am anything, I'm a blogger who's learned that one should never...

Jeckyll and Hyde season continues for Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings have made a habit out of playing to their competition this season. Detroit has somehow found a way to lose at home to bottom-feeding Columbus, then turn around and dominate games against Nashville and Vancouver. The Red Wings have been hot-and-cold all season, and that trend continued in their most recent game against the Blackhawks.  The Red Wings looked outmanned...

Finally….Datsyuk’s Found His Niche

Draper. Gilchrist. Dallas Drake and hell, how about Darryl LaPlante?  Checking forwards, or at least forwards we expected little offense out of, right? Now you can add Pavel Datsyuk to that list. Finally, after a decade, the Wings have finally figured out how to use this man.  It's been frustrating, hasn't it? We've watched him for years, constantly wondering..."...

Howard, Red Wings top Avalanche 2-1

DETROIT (AP) -- Niklas Kronwall's shot from the blue line went wide, then caromed back off the boards just as goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere was extending his right leg. The puck bounced off Giguere's skate and into the net, giving the Detroit Red Wings a fluky but important goal. "I couldn't really find a lane through to the net, so I tried to get it somewhat close...

Red Wings lose in SO to streaking Blackhawks

DETROIT As far as statement games go, the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks basically said the same things they've been saying all season. For the Wings, they showed they're still a work in progress. For the Blackhawks, they showed they're a cohesive group clicking on all cylinders. The Blackhawks came into the game on a record-setting points pace to open the...

Red Wings-Avs quick take: it was tighter than it needed to be

Grr. The Detroit Red Wings' 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche was good to see--it was a relief, frankly, given that the Wings need to take as many of the 8 games they're playing over 2 weeks, and were off to an 0-and-1 start--it was great to see Johan Franzen score on a breakaway set up by Damien Brunner, awesome to see Niklas Kronwall rip a shot wide (gasp, with Abdelkader...

Red Wings Monday practice post in progress: Fil’s still out and good Helm news

Updated at 12:22 PM: The Red Wings hope to rebound from their loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday as they play seven more games over the next two weeks, starting with a game against Colorado tomorrow night, but it doesn't sound like they're going to get unrestricted free agent-to-be Valtteri Filppula's services back any time soon: Wings on ice for practice...

GDT - Game 23: Red Wings (10-8-4) host Avalanche (8-8-4) 7:30

At the moment, DET are 10th in the Conference, but only 1 point out of playoff position; that's the good news.  There are a couple bits of bad news.  To date the Wings have played 4 more games at the JLA than on the road - - that means a road heavy schedule to wind-up the season.  DET are not very good on the road 3-4-2.  The other bit of bad news - - right now there are...

Red Wings-Blackhawks set-up and overnight report: Wings don’t mind the odds stacked against ‘em

The Chicago Blackhawks come to town (12:30 PM EST, NBC/NHL Network Canada/97.1 FM) on a 18-0-and-3 streak, having won 8 straight games and possessing a stunning (according to the AP) 7-0-and-1 record at Joe Louis Arena and a 4-game winning streak against the Wings.
