Joakim Andersson subtly produces for Wings

Chicago -- When you're playing on a line with Damien Brunner and Gustav Nyquist, you're not going to get a lot of attention. But that doesn't bother Joakim Andersson. "They're more skilled than I am and maybe they're more pretty to watch," Andersson said, smiling after Saturday's morning skate. Brunner had 12 goals and 14 assists in 44 games during...

NHL Playoffs: RedWings vs Blackhawks Game 5 Preview

With their backs against the ropes, I will tell you why this Blackhawks team will take game 5 to move the series back to Detroit being down 3-2. The Red Wings will be facing off against the Blackhawks tonight in game 5 of this best of seven Western Conference Semifinals series.

Red Wings prospect Martin Frk’s Halifax Mooseheads win Memorial Cup

News is still rolling in on this one so highlights will eventually be added, but Red Wings prospect Martin Frk registered a goal and an assist as the Halifax Mooseheads defeated the Portland Winterhawks 6-4 in the Memorial Cup Final, allowing the QMJHL-champion Mooseheads to capture Major Junior Hockey's most prestigious trophy. The Canadian Press, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman...

Wings need to get their groove back Monday

The good news is, despite their laissez-faire effort Saturday night in Chicago, the Detroit Red Wings lost a hockey game, not the series to the Blackhawks. The bad news is, if the Wings continue to go through the motions, they will allow the Blackhawks off the elimination hook. This was a disjointed effort by Detroit. At times, the Wings lacked energy, discipline and cohesion...

Jimmy Howard’s Remarkable 2-on-1 Save Preserves Game 4 Shutout: Video

Jimmy Howard turned aside 28 shots Thursday night in a sensational effort to hand the Detroit Red Wings a 2-0 win and 3-1 series lead over the Chicago Blackhawks. No save was more important — or more impressive — than his sprawling denial of Dave Bolland’s shot during a Chicago 2-on-1. Detroit defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo got caught trying to make a play at center ice, freeing...

The Red Wings’ ‘new’ captain is like the previous ones: an understated leader

I've got KK to myself tonight, and as such, while I've already posted a multimedia post in addition to a quick take on the Red Wings' 4-1 loss to Chicago, Hockey Night in Canada's Cassie Campbell posited a profile of Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg, and for Wings fans, it's wonderful, must-watch video in which a man who's had to live up to the legacies...

Red Wings-Blachawks Game 5 set-up: Wings hope to match Hawks’ resolve with disciplined effort

The Detroit Red Wings head into Game 5 against the Chicago Blackhawks tonight (8 PM EDT, NBC/CBC/97.1 FM, and FSD will air a post-game show) holding a 3 games to 1 series lead, but they face a strange and difficult opponent for several reasons: First, as the Hawks repeatedly mentioned on Friday, they rallied from a 3-0 series deficit against the Vancouver Canucks in 2011, and forced...

Red Wings-Blackhawks Game 5 wrap-up: after awful effort, Wings insist they’ll nail Chicago

The Detroit Red Wings played a poor game in losing Game 5 of their second-round series to the Chicago Blackhawks by a 4-1 tally, and, as noted in the multimedia post, the Wings and their coach made no excuses for what was unacceptable play. The Wings have gotten worse in games 4 and 5 while the Blackhawks have gotten better, having registered 73 shots on Jimmy Howard, including...

Note to Blackhawks fans: this is not ‘Kronwalling’

Amongst the Chicago Blackhawks fans' trash talking after the Red Wings' Game 4 loss, they suggested that Bryan Bickell "Kronwalled" Niklas Kronwall. This hit: 1. Does not fit the "Kronwalling" definition as it was a hit from behind; 2. And while I happen to think that the hit was cheap, it's worth noting that Kronwall got up, skated away and...

GDT - WCSF Game 5: Red Wings (3-1) host Hawks (1-3) 8:00

4-3, 3-2,1-4, 4-1, 3-1, 2-0; DET's record in the past six games (5 wins, 1 loss),  Un-freaking-believable.  17 GF, 11 GA.  The Wings lose TPH, and Disco Stu, and manage to win with defense?  STFU.  Jimmy "brickwall" Howard:  0.50, .985 in last 2 GPI. From the Peloton of Suck to the doorstep of the WCF - - skate to throat, *******.  Continue reading "...

Morning Skate: Thorns in Quenneville's side

By DAVE DYEFOXSportsDetroit.com Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings can knock out Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville one more time with a victory in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal series. Without question, Babcock and the Wings are Quenneville's postseason nemesis. Consider: Babcock, in his eighth season as the Red Wings' coach, is 11-2 in playoff...
