Red Wings overnight report: and now we wait (and talk about Smith, Kindl and Mursak)

From a purely practical perspective, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock’s decision to give his players as many days away from the rink as possible from the middle of February on plain old makes sense. After game 55 or so, even if you’ve got special teams that are as inconsistent as the Wings’ have been, and even if you’re one gritty and ugly win removed from a three-game losing...

Red Wings off-day news: in a holding pattern

The Red Wings have gotten to a point in the season where addressing the team’s issues in terms of special teams play, attention to detail and consistency of effort can only be hammered into players who’ve played over 60 games together so much before the coaching staff’s talking to a wall, and as such, while the Wings could have practiced after Tuesday’s 5-2 victory over the...

Red Wings-Wild quick take: Datsyuk/Lidstrom-less Wings learn how to walk

The Detroit Red Wings’ 6-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild was both a case of a smart, veteran Wings team pouncing upon an opponent that got into town very, very late and a Red Wings team that started the game sans Nicklas Lidstrom (ankle), Pavel Datsyuk (knee) and Jonathan Ericsson’s (wrist) services, and played the 3rd period without Todd Bertuzzi (Wings coach Mike Babcock...

Don Cherry’s gonna love this…

Per the Windsor Star’s Dave Waddell, I’m sure that Coach’s Corner will involve some anti-Red Wings and anti-Maple Leafs talk after Wings GM Ken Holland and former Leafs president Richard Peddie offered the following takes on banning fighting in developmental programs, perhaps all the way up to the CHL level at some point: “I’d love to see it at the lower levels,” Holland...
