Red Wings coach Mike Babcock cited the old insanity definition Wednesday when discussing his latest line combinations.
BEST OF MAXIM
from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Coach Mike Babcock said they did some good things, such as holding the Flames to 10 shots through two periods. But that was far outweighed by the bad.
“You can let it snowball on you if you’re mentally soft,” Babcock said. “No one else is going to look after you, you got to look after yourself. You got to dig in and put a stop to it. It’s going...
DETROIT -- The Red Wings got some much-needed good news Wednesday -- defenseman Niklas Kronwall is fine.
Kronwall appeared a little dazed after taking a hit from Minnesota's Mikko Koivu at the end of Tuesday night's game. Kronwall fell to the ice and Koivu was able to pass to Devin Setoguchi for the overtime game-winning goal.
But Wednesday, Kronwall participated in full...
The Detroit Red Wings are very obviously in trouble. They’re playing indecisive, downright jittery hockey at times, with a confidence level so low that you can almost sense that when the opposing team either scores the first goal or ties the game up, all the air’s gone out of the S.S. HindenWing, and you might as well put the game in the “L” column and key up the cliches...
They flew out of the gate as one of the NHL's hottest teams, but the proud Red Wings are now on the skids and in disarray. Stu Hackel looks at what's going wrong in Hockeytown.
The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenseman Brendan Smith from Grand Rapids of the AHL. Detroit announced the move before Thursday night's game against the Calgary Flames. The 22-year-old Smith, a first-round draft pick in 2007, has two assists and 20 penalty minutes in seven games with Grand Rapids this season.
The Red Wings talked extensively about getting back to basics before losing, 4-1, on Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena to Calgary, the latest in a string of one-goal performances. They talked about it again afterward, as neither Henrik Zetterberg nor Pavel Datsyuk, the team's superstar forwards, had a shot on net after 40 minutes and only combined for three in the third period.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the National Hockey League, then you will be surprised to learn that long-dominant Red Wings are 0-5-1 in their last six games.They became the first team in NHL history to start the season 5-0, then go winless in their next six games.Detroit fans booed them off their own rink during their 4-1 loss to Calgary at Joe Louis Arena.

Fake Henrik Zetterberg is the web series created by Greg DeLiso and Jacob Hawkins that takes the premise of their hilarious Zetterberg bathroom routine clip from 2009 and expands it into an "Office Space"-esque comedy series featuring the faux Detroit Red Wings player.
Episode 1 was a lot of setup, as we meet the cute girl in the office Hank's crushing on and the scarf...
Well contrary to my post below, per a "tweet" from Helene St. James, Mike Commodore IS going to make is debut tonight. @freepwings: Helene St. James Commodore to debut as Wing tonight, Kindl outNot for Ericsson, as I had hoped, but for Kindl, the poor kid. Either way though,...
I'm so glad I didn't waste a Defiance post on that. Seemed like the team just wanted to coast around and have the puck go in because they're the Red Wings and they should beat the Flames. As you can see, that wasn't the case. Most of the Red Wings did not skate hard. Those that did made terrible decisions with the puck. Kiprusoff was rarely challenged. I keep hearing...
If the Red Wings really are going to join the Eastern Conference next season, you'd better start boning up on their new rivals. Two of the better teams in the East square off tonight as Buffalo hosts Philadelphia at 7:30 on Versus.

The Red Wings will soon remember that the objective of hockey is to turn on that little red lamp above the other guy's goal as often as possible.
Here are notes and quotes from the Red Wings' 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena:
