The Detroit Red Wings need to rebound from their latest home setback against the Washington Capitals when they tangle with the New York Islanders this evening (7 PM EST, FSD/MSG Plus/97.1 FM), and the Islanders report that the Wings won't have to battle Thomas Vanek this evening, but they will have to solve an alumnus of a sort: #Isles forward @T_Vanek26 is on the ice for morning skate. Game status update to come shortly from HC Jack Capuano. ... Capuano: Nabokov in goal tonight. Same #Isles skaters as the last game meaning Vanek remains day-to-day. NHL.com's John Kreiser reminds us why the Wings needed to get away from Joe Louis Arena so very desperately...

Isles' Nabokov leaves with hurt groin

New York Islanders' Evgeni Nabokov sustained a groin injury on the first shot he faced Saturday night and left the game just 4:12 in and didn't return. The 38-year-old Nabokov was playing for the first time in four games and the second in six. He did a split and fell forward as Detroit's Darren Helm scored a breakaway goal to tie it 1-1 - nine seconds after New York...

Islanders G Nabokov injured on 1st shot faced

New York Islanders Evgeni Nabokov has left the game against the Detroit Red Wings just 4:12 in after sustaining an injury on the first shot he faced. The 38-year-old Nabokov was playing Saturday night for the first time in four games and the second in six. He fell forward right after Detroit's Darren Helm scored a breakaway goal to tie it 1-1 - nine seconds after New York took...

Islanders keep Red Wings reeling

Kevin Poulin stopped all three Detroit skaters in the shootout after coming on in relief, and the New York Islanders outlasted the reeling Red Wings in a 5-4 see-saw matchup Saturday night. Neither team could hold the lead until Poulin finally shut the door in the tiebreaker, denying Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi. The Red Wings had tied the game 4-4 when Datsyuk...

Islanders Goalie Evgeni Nabokov Injured

On Saturday night the New York Islanders took on the Detroit Red Wings. The thirty-eight year old goalie Evgeni Nabokov was in nets for the first time in a week after Kevin Poulin started the past three games. Nabokov only had one shot on goal, which he let in before he went down and waved for the trainer to come. Nabokov was helped off the ice and brought to the dressing room while...

Red Wings Sunday news: Wings sign Athanasiou; NHL removes CoPa grass; Wings-Isles stuff; Alums lose

Amongst the day-after-the-Red Wings-lost again news stories found by this still-sleepless blogger: Via Paul, TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie reports that Red Wings have inked their third prospect of the fall to an entry-level deal, following up the team's signings of 2013 draft picks Anthony Mantha and Zach Nastasiuk by signing 2012 4th rounder Andreas Athanasiou to a 3-year...

Give Neil Smith A Shot In Buffalo

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, In 40 days and nights, Neil Smith might not have done what Noah was able to accomplish in that same time frame, but the Islanders general manager did construct the final pieces of the 2006-07 playoff team, no small feat in itself, before being told to step away by owner Charles Wang. It was Smith — working at least partially in concert...

Glendening heads back down to Grand Rapids (for now?)

Capgeek reported that the Red Wings brought Luke Glendening up as a cap-exempt "roster emergency" player (as Daniel Alfredsson couldn't play on Long Island due to a groin injury), so they had to send #41 back down after the game, at least on paper. Per the Wings' PR department, even if he's going to crash on a Wings teammate's couch or in their guest bedroom...

Red Wings-Capitals quick take: ????

I am officially frustrated. You start instead. The Wings blew a 2-goal lead in the 3rd period, yet again, Jimmy Howard received little support from his defense--this time literally getting pulled out of position by Brian Lashoff on the game-tying goal--and a predictable pattern emerged in the shootout, i.e. everybody tried their usual moves, and as such, Washington won 4-3 in a...

Capitals 4 Red Wings 3 SO ReCap

The Capitals completed yet another third-period comeback en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  The Capitals entered the third period trailing 3-1, but goals from Ovechkin and Latta were enough to force overtime and, eventually, a shootout.  The win keeps Washington within a point of Pittsburgh, who beat Nashville earlier in the night.  On to the reCap...

Red Wings-Capitals wrap-up and Wings-Islanders set-up: Can’t afford no cheap thrills

It can't be this *#$%@& complicated. I would really love to be more eloquent or offer a better, "Let's rally the troops, it's gonna be okay" message this morning, but the Red Wings' fifth loss in five games (though the Wings are 1-and-4) and seventh straight home loss have me as frustrated as anyone else with the Red Wings' inability or unwillingness...

Red Wings prospect news: Griffins dinged in Chicago; Janmark returns, Bertuzzi and Athanasiou soar

Even the Grand Rapids Griffins "were due" for a loss, but I'm sure they're not happy about the way Saturday night's 4-3 loss to the Chicago Wolves transpired. The Griffins rallied from a 3-1 deficit only to surrender a shorthanded goal 5:01 into the 3rd period--their second "shorty" of the night--and they couldn't overcome their errors. The Griffins...

Red Wings to attend benefit for Matt Sorisho on Wednesday, November 20th @ Compuware

Fox Sports Detroit's Ken Daniels has mentioned this twice already, but nobody's put out a press release, so: We've been told that most of the Red Wings' players, their coaches, the management and some alumni will be at Compuware Arena in Plymouth this Wednesday, November 20th, from 6-10 PM. They'll be there to raise funds for Matt Sorisho, the Catholic Central...

Fill-ins lead Kings to comeback win vs. Islanders

Not only did the Kings’ stun the New York Islanders with three third-period goals in a comeback win, they did it with a bunch of fill-ins. Undeterred by a two-goal deficit in the final frame, the Kings stormed back to beat the Islanders 3-2 on Thursday night in most unpredictable fashion. Tyler Toffoli, playing in just his fifth NHL game this season, tipped Jake Muzzin’s drive...

Red Wings-Islanders wrap-up and overnight report: some good, some bad, some ‘earned’ luck?

The Red Wings headed back to Metro Detroit ahead of a windy, stormy Sunday, having dropped their sixth straight game, a 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Islanders, and I have good news for Red Wings fans everywhere: The team won't play for two days. I also have some bad news: starting on Tuesday, the Wings will play 4 games over the course of six nights--with three straight...
