The Detroit Red Wings sit in fifth place in the Western Conference standings as the team will practice today at Joe Louis Arena, ahead of tonight's Toast of Hockeytown, thanks to a back-to-back wins over Edmonton and Vancouver, assuaging their crappy performance against Calgary last Wednesday. The packed nature of the Western Conference standings probably means that the 14-10-and-5 (with 12 regulation or OT wins) Wings will be out of the playoff pack by the time the Wings and Minnesota Wild tangle in an NBC "Rivalry Night" game on Wednesday, and today, we can expect to find out whether Kyle Quincey will require surgery for his broken cheekbone and whether the NHL will name Pavel Datsyuk one of its Stars of the Week after scoring a goal and adding three assists over the course of a dominant pair of weekend performances. As noted in Sunday's entries, Wings GM Ken Holland and his charges offered gushy praise for Datsyuk and Zetterberg's leadership over this pa...

Red Wings overnight report: broken players and a prospect in the pipleine?

My technological odyssey continued on Monday afternoon, so I took a little time to attend to something I'll need to write a short story about one day...
