Today's going to be a little bit surreal in more ways than one. Nicklas Lidstrom (in town to visit pals, recruit Danny DeKeyser and then head down to Florida for a "spring break" trip with his family) and 85th-birthday boy Gordie Howe will attend today's matinee between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks (12:30 PM EDT, NBC/NHL Network Canada/97.1 FM), and it's entirely possible that we'll see the team make some more roster moves as Johan Franzen and Mikael Samuelsson may play today (farewell, Kent Huskins)...
But, regardless of who actually plays for the Wings after the team dons #9 commemorative jerseys during the pre-game skate, the Wings' players face a particularly stiff task: in beginning a slate of back-to-back games against the Blackhawks and Avalanche, today's opponent comes into town possessing a staggering 8-0-and-1 record at Joe Louis Arena and a 10-1-and-2 record against the Wings of late, and the Blackhawks will start a goal...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Blackhawks recalled forward Jeremy Morin from Rockford on Saturday. Morin, who will turn 22 on April 16, takes the roster spot of Marian Hossa after he put on IR on Friday. Morin has been on fire lately with the IceHogs, and … Continue reading →The post Blackhawks Recall Jeremy Morin appeared first on Committed Indians.
from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,
A source confirmed to the Daily Herald on Saturday that the Blackhawks and Islanders have been talking multiplayer trade with the centerpiece of the deal being New York center Frans Nielsen....

Detroit is at a crossroads.
Here in 2013 the Detroit Red Wings need to decide where they see themselves moving forward and should Valtteri Filppula part of it?
I say no for a few reasons.
Detroit is in transition and even being under the cap Detroit has many questions to answer going forward. Who to keep, who to let go and perhaps who to trade?
First off, Detroit has a cap hit of ...
The Detroit Red Wings face off against the Chicago Blackhawks for a matinee game today (12:30 PM EDT, NBC/NHL Network Canada/97.1 FM), and the Blackhawks have made their lineup changes..
Look for Jeremy Morin to be in the lineup today, his first NHL game of the season, 13th of his career.

The Detroit Red Wings began their 7-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks finding out that Henrik Zetterberg had taken himself out of the game due to a groin injury, and by the time the game ended, the Mikael Samuelsson had succumbed to an "upper-body" injury (may be his last game for the Wings given how badly he's played in limited action--he's a cap-compliance buy...
On the day that the Detroit Red Wings were celebrating Gordie Howe’s 85th birthday, the Wings came out completely flat against the Chicago Blackhawks. They were down 2-0 when this disastrous play happened. Red Wings defenseman Jakub Kindl got the puck in front of his own net and was trying to make a play to get the puck away from the net when he got stick-checked by Blackhawks...
The Detroit Red Wings not only got throttled in their latest game, but they're also suddenly dealing with injuries to two veteran forwards.
The statuses of captain Henrik Zetterberg and Mikael Samuelsson are unknown for the Red Wings' attempt to avoid a third straight defeat Monday night against the Colorado Avalanche, losers in 11 straight on the road.
Yesterday was the Danny Dekeyser love fest (don't trunaround - one of the other 19 made that pithy comment), today the league leaging 'Hawks are in town for an Eddie Icepatch matinee.
Detroyet have dropped to 7th in the POS, 3 pts better than STL. Mule and Willam Tell are supposed to play today - I guess that is a good bit of news.
Gordie is 85 today, Happy Birthday...
On Monday, the NHL named Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin the Rookie of the Month for March. Brandon Saad’s production in 14 games might make this seem like an April Fool’s Day joke to many Blackhawks fans. Saad finished … Continue reading →The post Jake Muzzin Named NHL Rookie of the Month appeared first on Committed Indians.

Embarrassing, ugly, and sad are a few words that could be used to describe the Detroit Red Wings (17-13-5, 39 points, 7th place Western Conference)...
While the Philadelphia Flyers are expected to be sellers at the deadline, the team desperately needed depth at Defensemen. With Braydon Coburn and Andrej Meszaros out for the year, Philadelphia has acquired Kent Huskins from the Detroit Red Wings. The compensation is a conditional 7th round draft pick in 2014.
The 33 year old Huskins was without a team until after...
Another own goal, this time Jakub Kindl of the Detroit Red Wings with a backhand.
The goal was credited to Dave Bolland of the Blackhawks.
