Toronto-maple-leafs
    This really is happening again. How could anything go wrong on a night where only three games were played? For that answer we have enlisted the help of the Detroit Red Wings. Without further adieu, here is our presentation of shame. ======================================================== Jonas Gustavsson -- G -- Detroit Red Wings Congratulations! You really flipped the bird of many fantasy owners who thought hey Calgary has been awful of late, what is the worst that could happen here? You gave up FIVE goals on 22 shots. That is good for a lousy .773 save percentage that Ilya Bryzgalov might be proud of against New Jersey and Pittsburgh. That may have flew in Toronto but surely Mike Babcock was reaming you a new oriface after this third period of disaster. The boxscore does not lie. You sucked! In an even more cruel twist, Miikka Kiprusoff who stunk to high heaven the last two games went and stopped 36 of 38 shots for the win. I'm just saying! =======...

Tomas Jurco is a hot prospect for the Detroit Red Wings and is currently playing for their AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapid Griffins.

Nicklas Lidstrom will be featured on a stamp…As will Salming, Lundqivst and…Jorgen Jonsson?

According to both Aftonbladet's Linus Nordberg and Expressen, former Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom will soon find his visage on a Swedish postage stamp, just like Peter Forsberg...

Are the Red Wings ‘thinner,’ or younger, leaner and enduring a ‘rebuilding year?’

This story wouldn't fit into the Red Wings-Flames game-day update post, and that's probably a good thing. The Globe and Mail's Alan Maki suggests that the Red Wings have essentially fallen from grace and fallen back to the pack due to their personnel losses over the past couple of seasons and/or salary cap restrictions, and their coach and players don't necessarily...

GDT - Game 28: Red Wings (12-10-5) at Oilers (10-11-5) 9:30

The Wings take their horrendous 3-6-2 road record to EDM tonight trying to snap their current 0-2-1 skid; which has seen them fall out of playoff position.  DET find themselves 9th in the WC, only 3 pts from 4th position, and only 5 pts from 15th. It has been quite some time since the Wings were fighting just to try to get into the playoffs.  There is much angst among the 19...

Red Wings Recap: 3.13.2013

This game featured a strange pre-game show on Red Wings Live. The crew thought they’d try different things to “power up” the Red Wings Powerplay, and came to the conclusion they would achieve this by tossing different appliances on the desk. Things that contain power, was their logic, I believe. Really there should only be batteries, generators, and motors, but appliances?...

Video blog: Wings' road play path to playoffs

GDT - Game 27: Red Wings (12-9-5) at Flames (9-11-4) 9:30

GDT Plus today, *******.  There is Trouble in Paradise, much more than the diggers are letting on.  It is "Huge," Babcock said. "It's not even the trip, it's tomorrow. We got a game tomorrow. We've got one out of a possible four points here lately. We need to get back on the winning side of things."  Yea Mike, and you better friggin find some urgency...

Wings’ Post Practice Update

Someone in George's neighborhood cut an optic fiber line that feeds his ISP, so you have me again. from Ansar Khan of Mlive, The Detroit Red Wings had what coach Mike Babcock called a quick, efficient 30-minute practice Thursday, as they tried to purge from their system the third-period meltdown from the night before.

Red Wings-Flames Preview

The Detroit Red Wings' power-play futility on the road is in danger of sinking to a depth not seen in 25 years. Still searching for their first road power-play goal, the Red Wings hope to continue their recent success in Calgary while handing the Flames a season-high fourth straight loss Wednesday night. Detroit (12-9-5) ranks near the top of the league in converting power...

Red Wings-Flames wrap-up: ‘disturbing’ is the right word to describe this loss

The Detroit Red Wings flew to Edmonton after their 5-2 loss to the Calgary Flames, and after a third-period brain fart of epic proportions, and given that the Wings have gotten all of 1 point out of three games against the worst of the West in Columbus and Calgary, there was no reason to stick around.
