I've been sick for the last 36 hours but managed to drag myself out of bed to watch the Minnesota Wild defeat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 in a shoootou...Wait, what?
Those were the Canucks getting out-shot 34-14 in regulation and OT, including 17-2 in the 3rd and 4-1 in OT, but earning a shootout win because not even Pavel Datsyuk or Henrik Zetterberg can score these days for a team that's 2-and-5 in shootouts? The Canucks defeated the Red Wings 2-1, not the 2004 Minnesota Wild, gratuitous gropes, grabs, leg-humping and hockey molestation included?

Are you trying to predict what lies ahead in Pavel Datsyuk's hockey career? Good luck. By now you've probably heard speculation that Datsyuk will finish out the remaining year on his contract in 2013-14 before calling it quits in the NHL and playing out his final days in Russia.

From We All Bleed Red on YouTube, Red Wings GM Ken Holland spoke to the CBC's Scott Oake and Craig Simpson on After Hours, and the interview's worth watching:
Had things gone slightly better last week, tonights game in Detroit could have had huge playoff implications for the Coyotes. But even though the odds of a postseason berth have been severely diminished, there is still a ray of playoff hope left for the Coyotes, and if they wants to keep that faint hope alive, they must find a way to win against the Red Wings.
Detroit enters the...
Due to a nasty bug I've been out of the loop for a couple of days, and during that time, the Grand Rapids Griffins learned who they'll be playing in the first round of the AHL playoffs. The Griffins' PR department reports that Grand Rapids will battle the Houston Aeros in a best-of-five series which will commence on Friday, April 26th:
The Grand Rapids Griffins,...
We have to play with more desperation and put ourselves in a good spot,'' Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall said.
The Red Wings have been outscored 33-28 and outshot 426-414 in the first period this season.
“It's sort of been like that all year. I can't put a finger on it,'' goaltender Jimmy Howard said. “We're a team that can start and dictate...
The Red Wings scrum up a big point, but also drop another, as they drop the game 2-1 to the Canucks in a shootout. Shot blocking and defensive pressure were the stories of this game. Each team had very few shots on goal through each period. The scoring wasn’t opened till 12:15 of [...]
The Phoenix Coyotes and Detroit Red Wings have met in the postseason twice in the last three years. Now they're both trying to reach this year's playoffs.

Phoenix (19-17-8) and Detroit (20-16-8) met in a pair of first...

But the Wings pulled back...
We'd heard this from the CBC's Elliotte Friedman, but it's great to have a Wings beat writer confirm it: According to MLive's Ansar Khan, Red Wings GM Ken Holland has indeed "touched base" with Pavel Datsyuk's agent, Gary Greenstin, and while the Wings can't formally re-sign Datsyuk (whose situation is "complicated" given that, after the...
