Found March 22, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
The Detroit Red Wings will begin a slate of "on the road and still on the road" games against Anaheim tonight (10 PM EDT, FSD/NHL Network U.S. and NHL Network Canada = Center Ice/GCL blackouts/WXYT AM), and the Ducks' morning skate produced predictable news... Just a hunch but it looks like Corey Perry might be in tonight for Ducks. Again, just a hunch. — Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) March 22, 2013 Viktor Fasth off the ice first for Ducks so he'll get the start against the Red Wings. — Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) March 22, 2013 Continue reading "Red Wings-Ducks game-day updates: line-up tweaks for a team that’s ‘no bag of beans’"

Belated Red Wings Thursday practice post: Wings shake up lines, leave Helm at home

My apologies for the lateness of this one: I was feeling under the weather today. Anyway, the Red Wings flew from Detroit to Anaheim on Thursday afternoon, and instead of resting their legs, they practiced ahead of an incredibly challenging pair of games against the Ducks on Friday (10 PMEDT, FSD Plus/NHL Network U.S.) and Sunday (8 PM EDT, FSD): Babcock said he doesn...

Holland On Making Trades At The Deadline

"From our perspective, how it affects the Detroit Red Wings - we need to win some games. I look at the trade deadline, and there are buyers and sellers, and those that stand pat. And those that stand pat are teams that are on the bubble. You don't want to throw a lot of assets at something that you're not sure if you're going to miss the playoffs. I'm talking...

Abdelkader's hat trick sinks Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Justin Abdelkader had his first NHL hat trick, Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists, and the Detroit Red Wings ended Anaheim's club-record 13-game home winning streak with a 5-1 victory over the Ducks on Friday. Detroit began a four-game road trip with the first of back-to-back games against Pacific Division leaders, who beat the Red Wings 5-2 in...

Red Wings mid-day news: Ducks fighting as ‘leadership,’ #bringbackMurph and trade philosophy

It's 11-something AM on the West Coast and after 2 in Metro Detroit, and while Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau stated that his team would practice the day after their 5-1 loss to Detroit last night (their Twitter account posted a picture of the team practicing as I was writing this), I don't recall Red Wings coach Mike Babcock stating definitively whether the team would practice...

Justin Abdelkader Nets Hat Trick in Detroit Red Wings’ 5-1 Win Over Anaheim Ducks: Video

Justin Abdelkader did not score in the Detroit Red Wings’ first 23 games this season, and he managed a mere three goals through 30 games. Friday night in an important game in Anaheim, Abdelkader lit the lamp three times in 19 minutes and 10 seconds. After Teemu Selanne handed the Ducks a 1-0 lead, Abdelkader made a terrific move to the net and beat goalie Victor Fasth to knot the...

Red Wings vs Ducks Recap: 3.22.2013

The following phrases were said tonight: “Franzen wins the race” “Power play goal, Detroit” and “Abdelkader with the hat trick!” And they were all true. I’m scared, too. This game was a lot like the won the Wings just lost to the Wild. The home team carried the play, but the road team scored on their few chances. And I'm so thrilled for Abby, I'm not going...

Red Wings-Ducks game-day updates, part 2: Ducks ‘taking Wings seriously’; Helm’s sorely missed

Between me ferrying the mom to the tax man (good news on that front, we're getting $$ back) and getting back here, a second slate of game-day updates (not involving Ken Holland's stance on trades) hit the wires ahead of tonight's game between the Red Wings and Ducks (10 PM EDT, FSD/NHL Network U.S./NHL Network Canada/WXYT AM): We'll start with the Ducks' side...

Red Wings-Wild wrap-up and overnight report: disallowed game

The Detroit Red Wings fell into an all-too-familiar trap in dropping their first (and in this case "only") game back from a Western Canadian road swing against a team that had made the same trip, dropping a 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild in a game that wasn't nearly as close on the ice as it was on the scoreboard. While the Wings weren't particularly thrilled...

Red Wings-Ducks wrap-up: Wings make a statement as West’s playoff pack draws tight

This is what Justin Abdelkader accomplished in the Red Wings' 5-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night: Between Abdelkader's hat trick (the box score for your free Arby's curly fries can be found here), Johan Franzen and Pavel Datsyuk's 3-point nights (including Datsyuk registering his 250th goal and 500th and 501st assists) and Jimmy Howard'...
