Found February 23, 2012 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
I'm bitter. Howard played great and line 1c was incredible, but all the talk will be about Vancouver snapping the streak. Whatever.Full recap after the jump: The icing call was terrible and it cost the Wings the game. Plain and simple. Still, if the whole team had played well, it wouldn't have mattered. Franzen seemed bored out there on the PP and the fact that he was on the ice during the last 2 minutes of the game when Vancouver would be pressing the hardest bothers me.Detroit's PP is bad, but a lot of people were saying it would be better if Pav was there. Really? I seem to recall Pavel Datsyuk being on the ice for a lot of the failed PP chances the last couple of months. One man will not fix this mess. However, not having Datsyuk was a problem, obviously. We could have used him in OT and certainly would have been nice in the shootout.Luongo is garbage. Like I said, I'm bitter.Our FNG, Kyle Quincey had a pretty good game. I could do without the penalties, but h...

Dater versus Quincey versus the Avs versus Quincey versus Dater

This just isn’t going to go away. As mentioned in the, “Mad Dash,” new Red Wings acquisition Kyle Quincey spoke to Yahoo Sports’ Nicholas J. Cotsonika about fact that Saturday night’s opponent, the Colorado Avalanche, has a bunch of unrestricted free agents-to-be, and that continued uncertainty as to the team’s direction has some of those unrestricted free agents-to-be...

Holland erases error by getting Quincey

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland likes to describe his job as winning today with an eye always on tomorrow. Its a simple philosophy to manage by, and nobody does it better than Holland -- even if he makes a mistake or two along the way. With the reacquisition of defenseman Kyle Quincey from Tampa Bay on Tuesday, Holland corrected one of his few miscalculations. He...

A dissenting opinion on the Quincey deal

What The Chief does is harder than one might think. That whole combination of earnest snark and a willingness to play the Don Cherry of Red Wings blogdom boor for the sake of baiting those who dislike and sometimes detest the Winged Wheel by issuing the verbal equivalent of bloody fish guts and 8-day-old octopus…I can’t pull off that s*** for the life of me. I do the earnest...

Thoughts on Quincey & his comments

So there's been big drama in Avalanche land lately. First Kyle Quincey was traded to Tampa, where they turned him to Detroit, for a 1st round pick. So we'll start there. I don't really like this trade. Not that Downie won't help the Avs. I think he brings some of what the Avs need. Some, to borrow a hockey cliché, "sandpaper" to the lineup. But I feel like...

Quincey explains his assertion of Avs

Kyle Quincey scored a goal in 21:32 of ice-time in his first game with the Red Wings Thursday night. He'll play against his former Colorado teammates Saturday at Joe Louis Arena. (Pho...

Kyle Quincey excited, nervous as Red Wings take on Canucks tonight

As much as Kyle Quincey feels surefooted and confident joining the Detroit Red Wings tonight when they host the Vancouver Canucks (7:30 p.m., FSD), he doesn't want to be the reason the Wings' 23-game home winning streak ends.

Quincey comes full circle

Quincey's Impact on the NHL Trade Market

The Tampa Bay Lightning stayed busy on Tuesday with their third move in the span of a week. Lightning GM Steve Yzerman dealt Dominic Moore to the San Jose Sharks last Thursday, moved Pavel Kubina to the Philadelphia Flyers the next day, and then yesterday picked up Kyle Quincey from Colorado in exchange for Steve Downie, before dealing Quincey to Detroit for a first round pick...

Quincey returns for 1st-round pick

The Red Wings got help from one former player to acquire another as they take aim at the Stanley Cup. The Wings added toughness to their blue line Tuesday by acquiring defenseman Kyle Quincey from Tampa Bay for Detroit's first-round pick in the June draft.

Gameday Movie Poster & Open Post: Punisher

Today's been a hell of a day for Bertuzzi.  First new contract.  Tonight is his Bobblehead night.  And now he's being featured by Josh Howard in tonight's movie poster. What more could he ask for? As Josh explains: Still super surprised their are people that don't like him being with the Wings.  How can you like the Wings and not say he's one of the greatest...

Let’s hear it for small-market hockey

The Avalanche jettisoning of defenseman Kyle Quincey and adding of winger Steve Downie in the three-team trade Tuesday can be justified in the competitive sense. I get that. Colorado had a numbers issue on defense and needed more grit, or at least grit with some talent accompanying it, at forward. But two additional things jumped out at me, and I couldn’t resist saying them from...

Patrick Eaves (concussion) unsure of if he'll play again this season; Pavel Datsyuk (knee) looking for tickets to Florida

The locker room at Joe Louis Arena was full this morning, with the healthy and the less so. Pavel Datsyuk, two days removed from arthroscopic knee surgery, was there working out. Patrick Eaves, three months removed from breaking his jaw, was there to skate a little on his own.

Vancouver 4, Detroit Red Wings 3 (SO): Oh, shoot! Wings' home win streak ends at 23

Jimmy Howard protected the Red Wings through one subpar period, then another. Newcomer Kyle Quincey and the third line helped in the third. Ultimately, the Wings came up short, and their record-setting 23-game home winning streak ended.
