It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Wearing #13 in a uniform that resembles the Red Wings’ whites in every facet except for the logo on the front and pulling off a nifty move in a shootout will have Wings fans yearning for Pavel Datsyuk. But instead of Datsyuk on the Joe Louis Arena ice, it came from Gustav Nyquist on the Van Andel Arena ice in Grand Rapids.
Nyquist would most likely be playing for the Wings (and wearing a different number) but for the greedy owners and players’ association. He’s putting in his time with the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Wings’ AHL affiliate, making goalies look silly. In a game over the weekend, he worked over Toronto Marlies goalie Ben Scrivens with a spin-a-roo in the shootout.
Nyquist leads the Griffins with 29 points through 30 games.

#2: Preds take two games in Detroit, knock off their arch-rival in five
Ever since the Nashville Predators joined the NHL in 1998, the Detroit Red Wings have been the benchmark. Since the Preds’ first took the ice, all Detroit’s done is win two Stanley Cups, three Western Conference championships and a whopping 10 Central Division titles.
Easy to see why they were the benchmark...
Red Wings GM Ken Holland, a huge component to the Wings’ continued success for over a decade when he took over the role in 1997 was booed this past Sunday during the Lions’ 26-24 loss to the Chicago Bears from Ford Field.

On Sunday at Ford Field, not far from the Red Wings' home at Joe Louis Arena, Holland was booed by many of the 65,000 fans attending the Lions-Bears game.
