The Detroit Red Wings quest for the Cup begins... After an up and down season, the Detroit Red Wings finally know who they will be facing in the first round of the NHL Playoffs.  The Nashville Predators welcome the Red Wings to the Music City, and believe me, both teams are built for long runs.  After an entire 82 game season, the Wings take a modest 4-4-2 record into the playoffs...

Red Wings Playoff Preview: Round 1

If the Red Wings "flip the switch" in this series, it could be over in 4. If they don't "flip the switch" in this series, it could be over in 4. I'm going to avoid the urge to predict which team will show up because there's just no way for me to tell. Instead, I'll look at stats and head-to-head match ups to see if we can figure out how this series...

Red Wings off-day update: Weber fined, Zetterberg pissed off, Nyquist in, Griffins sign Billins

Very briefly (still ramping up to full speed here, sorry folks): here’s a roundup of the various Red Wings and Predators storylines from Thursday. The news regarding Shea Weber (more on it later) comes as a bit of a surprise, per the Tennessean’s Josh Cooper: Greetings from today’s Predators practice update.

An Interesting First Night Of NHL Playoffs

((HT: NHL/NBCSN/CNBC))First off, Pittsburgh gave up a 3-0 lead to Philly before losing in OT on a Jake Voracek goal...Second, Nashville-Detroit will probably go the distance. But it took the folks at CNBC and the NHL until late in the second period to lift the blackout in the southeastern parts of the US- since the promise was, after all, for the Peacock's family of networks...

Shea Weber gets away with no suspension for nasty hit on Zetterberg

Granted, technically this hit on Henrik Zetterberg by Shea Weber wasn't a traditional hit. It was more of a "I'm gonna fight you, Steve!" kind of move than anything else: [youtube]Z5l-zZ9ylXY[/youtube] The reaction on Twitter was immediate and universal: "What the hell was Weber thinking?" It didn't seem to matter what team you were a fan of (disclaimer...

Weber for his efforts was given a two minute minor for roughing, the length...
