Via Fox Sports Detroit's Dana Wakiji, I'm a bit bushed, so here's my "evening line": #RedWings Alfredsson: If you’re a hockey fan it’s great times, but if you’re a fan of one of the teams on the bubble it’s nervous times. — Dana Wakiji (@FSDwakiji) March 21, 2014 Enjoy the videos and stuff in the quick take and the Legwand entry. Trying to get healthier but depression is a pain in the ass. See you tomorrow--and yes, I did promise on Twitter that if the Wings make the playoffs, someone will film me jumping up and down and giggling like a little girl, like I did after the Wings won tonight. I will indeed do just that.

Wings notes: Helm ready to return

DETROIT -- For once, the news coming out of Red Wings practice was encouraging. Darren Helm expects to return for Saturday afternoon's game in Minnesota after missing the last eight games with a concussion. "A bunch of good skates, cleared by the doctor, did my concussion test, I guess you could call it, did well on that and I feel good and ready to go," Helm said after...

Detroit Red Wings: March madness in Hockeytown

While the NCAA men’s basketball tournament captivated sports fans across the nation Thursday with upsets reining supreme, a case could be made that perhaps the most dramatic buzzer-beater of the night actually took place on the ice.

Wings notes: Players just as baffled by injury situation

DETROIT -- When you saw nine players skating during the optional practice Wednesday, you could easily make the joke that those were all the healthy guys the Red Wings had. Except it's no joke and coach Mike Babcock is clearly tired of talking about it. Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson was the latest victim, suffering a broken middle finger on his left hand late in the second period...

Red Wings trade for magic leg

The Red Wings are the walking wounded. Going into the trade deadline needing defensive help Nicklas Lidstrom to come out of retirement, Kenny Holland instead found himself needing to buy a bandaid.  Detroit native David Legwand is that temporary relief.

The Red Wings picked up a much needed win on Thursday night at the Joe against the Penguins. Daniel Alfredsson, who had a nine-game goal drought before tonight’s game, banked in the game winner with just .04 seconds left in overtime incredibly after Detroit got a 3 on 1 with less than ten seconds remaining. Hopefully this sparks some future success for Alfie and company; if not...

Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson out 4-6 weeks after finger surgery

The Red Wings won’t have defenseman Jonathan Ericsson until the playoffs — if they get that far.

David Legwand Spears Evgeni Malkin In Groin, Gets Ejected (GIF)

Detroit Red Wings center David Legwand was ejected from Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after he speared Evgeni Malkin in the groin. Legwand matched up with Malkin for almost every shift, but the Pens sniper scored twice, which probably ticked off the 33-year-old Wings vet a little. The game was tied 4-4 at 16:14 in the third period when Legwand ended a battle...

Red Wings Score With 0.4 Seconds Remaining To Beat Penguins In OT (Video)

The Detroit Red Wings were on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff picture entering Thursday night’s slate of games, and they earned two huge points with a last-second victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Joe Louis Arena. With less than five seconds remaining in overtime, veteran winger Daniel Alfredsson skated into the attacking zone on a 3-on-1 for the last scoring...

Detroit Red Wings Crawl Back Into Playoff Spot, 5-4 Over PIT

Detroit Red Wings come up with another huge 2 points in an air-tight, hard fought battle against the Pittsburgh Penguins, taking them down 5-4 in OT. The first period went fairly well for the Red Wings. They would strike first at 7:21, when Daniel Alfredsson took a pass patiently through the slot in front of Marc Andre-Fleury, and let off a well-placed wrister through traffic to...

VIDEO: Alfredsson’s goal with one-second left in OT lifts Detroit over Pittsburgh 5-4

With almost half the team out due to injury the Red Wings got a much needed two points in their hunt for the playoffs beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 in OT Thursday night.

With about five seconds left in the extra period Detroit managed a 3-1 rush...

Just as things appeared to be over with the puck heading to the other end, Legwand tried to sneak in the...

James Neal Gets Away with his Head Crosscheck ☆

Somehow James Neal will not have a hearing for his crosscheck to Luke Glendening’s head. We’re going to assume that it’s because Glendening wasn’t injured on the play and then we’re going to stop thinking about the NHL’s logic when it comes to suspending people because it hurts our brains to do so. Hopefully Neal stops with the dangerous plays before he really hurts someone...

Notes & Lines: Pens Visit Detroit

The Pittsburgh Penguins visit Joe Louis Arena to face what’s left of the Detroit Red Wings. Seriously, almost everyone is injured: The Wings seem to have it even worse than the Pens on that front. They’re one point out of the final Wild Card spot in the East, which is weird because the Red Wings have made the playoffs for approximately 324 straight seasons. Or something. Pittsburgh...
