The Detroit Red Wings and Phoenix Coyotes face off tonight (7:30 PM EST, FSD/WXYT/FSAZ, and its Johan Franzen bobblehead night tonight) as a pair of teams on streaks. The Coyotes feel very good about theirs as their two-game road winning streak, most recently involving a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators, has them sitting atop the Pacific Division with 33 points; their opponents, however, feel a little more about streaking the way fans in Calgary did one unfortunate night when someone chose to only keep his socks on while attempting to re-live some 70’s silliness on ice (with predictably disastrous results), with a 3-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday punctuating yet another multiple-game losing streak. As the two-time first-round opponents renew hostilities for the first time since last April, PhoenixCoyotes.com’s Dave Vest suggests that the Wings face something of a road juggernaut which hopes to increase Detroit’s magic number to 3 consecutive losses while eclipsing the Wings’ ...

Red Wings off-day news: Fake Henrik Zetterberg’s hard at work; Joey ‘Mac’ and more Wings-Blues stuff

The Red Wings received their first “off day” in a little over a week today, but the gents behind Fake Henrik Zetterberg, Jacob Hawkins and Greg DeLisio, kept Henrik Zetterberg busy by asking his doppelganger—and his nemesis—to endure a little automotive trouble: You can follow Jacob, Greg and Fake Henrik on Facebook and Twitter, and their characterization of a hockey-gear...

If I'm Dan Cleary...

"If I’m Dan Cleary, I worry about forecheck, penalty killing, getting to the net.  I don’t spend any time thinking about goal-scoring. You’d be amazed at how everything works out from there." --Mike BabcockThat quote comes to us from Khan(!) this morning.  We know that everyone's favorite Newfie is having some trouble producing this year...and hell, Chris...

Tippett’s ‘simple’ system key for Coyotes

For the last three years there’s been a trend in relation to Dave Tippett’s Phoenix Coyotes. Every September, pundits believe the talent-starved Coyotes will finish at the bottom of the standings. Every December, those same pundits have figured out they were (or will be) wrong. The same thing is happening this season.In 2009-10, the Desert Dogs shocked the hockey world by...

Red Wings Benefit From Realignment, Lindstrom for 1 More?

Other than a move to the Eastern Conference, the Detroit Red Wings could not be happier about the NHL realignment set to occur next season. The switch to four divisions and change in playoff format will greatly reduce the travel throughout the year and allow the Wings to play every team at least once both home and away. The Central Division will include current rivals Chicago Blackhawks...

Kicking em While They're Down: Phoenix Coyotes

Even Lebda was able to score tap-ins against this team.I'm going to enjoy this. I first heard about Five for Howling during the 2010 playoffs and checked in on it from time to time since. Usually to get their perspective on how hockey will work in the desert or who's buying the team this month. But the more the Wings beat them and the more our fans humiliated them, the angrier...

Jimmy Howards rumbles with St. Louis Blues Player

Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard lost his cool on Tuesday night after getting run into by Blues’ winger, David Perron. Howard was a little upset with the contact from the forward. He immediately went after Perron and caused a rumble behind the net. The Wings goaltender responded after the game saying, “I’m not taking that. If you’re going to try and run me like that...

Red Wings-Coyotes wrap-up and overnight report: a kettle bell ring-worthy win

The Detroit Red Wings’ 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night most certainly represented the best first period and, maybe predictably, middling second and third periods the Wings played because, despite the Wings’ fantastic, five-goal first period, it essentially devolved into a forty-minute exercise in clock-killing for the Wings, to the point that Joe Louis...

Yandle's late goal lifts Coyotes over Predators

Keith Yandle scored with 1:45 remaining to give the Phoenix Coyotes a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Red Wings-Blues quick take: repetitive errors and the paper confidence tiger

The Detroit Red Wings dropped a 3-1 decision to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night because the Wings chose not to learn lessons from their 4-2 loss to Colorado on Sunday, at least until it was too late for anything other than a a final flourish: for the second game in a row, the Wings were out-worked, out-hustled and ground down by a team that paid just a little more attention...

Coyotes 3, Predators 2

Keith Yandle scored with 1:45 remaining to give the Phoenix Coyotes a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. Phoenix won its second straight game. Nashville has dropped six of eight. Ray Whitney and Taylor Pyatt also scored for Phoenix. Jack Hillen and Shea Weber had the Predators' goals. With the teams skating 4-on-4, Shane Doan fired a pass from the right...

Chris was added as an author three months later.  Both are washed up college hockey...

The Morning After Round-Up: Coyotes 3, Predators 2

Nashville's home ice woes continued last night with a frustrating 3-2 loss to Phoenix. Games between the Coyotes and Predators are always close with Barry Trotz and Dave Tippett playing a chess match type game that is not always an exciting brand of hockey but very effective in both teams taking away time and space from the other.Goals generally come from mistakes and that...

Mistakes overshadow big plays

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A couple of heady plays – one by defenseman Brad Stuart and the other by forward Tomas Holmstrom – helped the Red Wings to a lead Tuesday. Unfortunately much, much more was needed to overcome a couple of bigge...
