Ty Anderson: Welcome: B's down Red Wings in Hub, 4-1

In their last two trips to Boston, the Detroit Red Wings were more than happy to play the role of party-crasher at TD Garden. Absolutely trouncing the Bruins back in Feb. 2011 by a 6-1 final, and downing Boston in a shootout back on Black Friday 2011, a return to the Hub for a Saturday night showdown against the Bruins in the new-look Atlantic saw quite the role reversal. Taking...

Not Drafted, but Not Lying Either - Newest Supreme Court Justice

Yesterday it was reported that Canada's newest Supreme Court Justice Marc Nadon may have fibbed to a Parliamentary committee when he said he had been drafted at the age of 14 by the Detroit Red Wings (prior to abandoning his hockey dreams to pursue his legal dreams.)
