Red Wings evening news: Quincey’s sore, the Wings are finding their footing and a Frk’n honor

Building upon today's early-afternoon post, the Red Wings' "day off" from their 48-games-in-99-nights marathon hasn't resulted in a dearth of Red Wings-related news. While the Wings are enjoying their time in Phoenix, back at Joe Louis Arena, DetroitRedWings.com's Bill Roose spoke to Kyle Quincey about taking one bullet and dodging another. Quincey'...

Coyotes running out of time as deadline looms

GLENDALE, Ariz. How much did Mondays 3-2 loss to the Red Wings impact the Coyotes season? Heres what general manager Don Maloney said before the game when asked if the Coyotes planned to be buyers or sellers at the April 3 trade deadline. Were right at the cliff as far as Im concerned, Maloney said. If we slide much further, all bets are off. Were going to go out and find assets...

Red Wings overnight report: a status report and news about Iginla, DeKeyser, Jarnkrok, etc.

I tried to combine the Red Wings-Ducks wrap-up and set-up for tonight's Wings-Coyotes game (10 PM EST, FSD/FS Arizona/97.1 FM) into one entry because that's how the narrative seemed to present itself, but not everything fit in one place, so... Prepare for an extravaganza of discussion about Jarome Iginla, Danny DeKeyser, Calle Jarnkrok, Ladislav Smid(!), Pavel Datsyuk,...

Red Wings vs Ducks Recap: 3.24.2013

Red Wings made that one about as interesting as they could while hanging on to the regulation win. We’ll take it, but in the future, don’t let off the gas when you go up 2-0, k? Howard, though… Man, that guy is tough to beat when he’s on and the last two games he has been on. Full recap after the jump: Friday night I was concerned that the Ducks would come at the...

16 Years Ago Today: Red Wings – Avalanche 1997 Brawl

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kou0p5oI4Xk   This happened 16 years ago today. I still think it was the game that forever changed this franchise. It gave the Red Wings momentum to win their 1st cup after a 42 year drought. They would repeat as Cup champs the following year, still the last time to win back-to-back Stanley Cups. Go Wings!!

Even more about Fox Sports Detroit’s firing of Larry Murphy

We've talked about this at some length now, but the Free Press's Mike Bruendell is confirming what TPLHockey reported on Sunday: the Red Wings played no part in Fox Sports Detroit's decision to fire Larry Murphy, and Murphy's still baffled as to why FSD vice-president and general manager Greg Hammaren tossed Murphy to the curb, citing "ratings" and the fact...

Playoff picture clearing up: Coyotes need wins

When the Coyotes take the ice Monday night against the suddenly surging Red Wings, theyll find themselves three points behind the Stars for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Its hardly an insurmountable gap, and there are still 17 games left to play. But while much talk this season has focused on the tightness of the Western Conference race, that once-elusive separation...

Video blog: Dan DeKeyser to become a Red Wing?

Many believe that Western Michigan's Dan DeKeyser, an undrafted, unrestricted free agent, is a talent that could help the Detroit Red Wings now.

GDT - Game 32: Red Wings (15-11-5) at Ducks (22-4-4) 8:00

DET sit 7th in the Conference today; 3 points from 4th, and 3 points from 11th.  Last GDT I was predicting all doom and gloom for this road trip - and we won?  That just proves how little I know about hockey. But I do know about superstition - there is no chance in hell for Detroit today; we are doomed.  Play it Slow-hand! “Bring ...Back…Mur-phy” Continue reading...

Red Wings-Coyotes wrap-up and overnight report: three for three yields a happy day off

What a difference four days can make. The Detroit Red Wings entered their 4-game road swing through the Western U.S. sitting all of a pair of points up on every "playoff pack" team, including those damn Columbus Blue Jackets. Heading into their first practice-less "dayoff" ince the Wings' 4-2 loss to Minnesota seven days ago, the Wings have gone 3-for-3...

Happy National Goalie Fight Day!

It was 16 years ago today that the seemingly docile net protectors of the Red Wings and Avalanche squared off and beat the **** out of each other in the greatest collective fight in sports – neigh – mankind history. At least that’s how I pictured it in my head at the time. Bear in mind, I was a little gap-toothed fourth-grader rocking a hard bowl cut. My perception of goalies...

Brendan Smith Fights Bobby Ryan: Video

After taking hit after hit from the Anaheim Ducks in the third period of the Detroit Red Wings’ 5-1 win on Sunday, Brendan Smith finally decided to drop the gloves. He did so after being challenged (and charged, without a call) by Ducks forward Bobby Ryan. Smith landed a couple of shots before Ryan tumbled to the ice — completing the third fight of that game, all involving Wings...

All Signs Point To Disaster

This is the most redolent example of a trap game I've ever seen. Coming off an emotional two game sweep of this once invincible and once Mighty Ducks, in front of 7 thousand of their own fans and 11 thousand of ours.  Phoenix hasn't won in five games.  Shane Doan has been playing for free the entire year, waiting for a Saudi pharmacist to buy the team.
