The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned goalie Joey MacDonald to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL.
MacDonald was Ty Conklin's backup for Detroit in its game at Columbus on Tuesday night - with usual starter Jimmy Howard excused from the team for the birth of his first child. MacDonald signed a two-year contract extension over the summer.
He hasn't played yet for Detroit this season, but he went 5-5-3 with a 2.58 goals-against average for the Red Wings in 2010-11.
In five appearances with Grand Rapids this season, MacDonald is 3-2-0 with a 1.98 GAA.

DETROIT -- What a difference a week makes.
Seven days ago, the Red Wings were cruising along with a perfect 5-0 record. They had back-to-back shutouts, balanced scoring and a favorable schedule, which put them in their customary spot -- at or near the top of the NHL standings.
Two losses later -- to the elite-level Capitals and the hapless Blue Jackets, by a combined score of 11...
Year after year we hear the same thing. The Wings are slipping, they’re on the decline, or just flat-out too old. I remember critics calling for the Wings fall from graces when Yzerman and Shanahan left, and they will do the same when the time comes for Datsyuk and Zetterberg to call it a career.

This Mike Modano picture has him in a tiny speedo and a big afro. Honestly, it’s disgusting. I could hardly look at the picture long enough to write this entry.

The Red Wings wanted better out of their special teams, out of Ty Conklin, out of themselves, basically, after being humbled by the NHL's best.
