Pavel Datsyuk beats four Predators for goal

Part of what makes the Detroit Red Wings’ Pavel Datsyuk so amazing to watch is how effortless he is in dominating hockey games. The three-time Selke Trophy winner is known for his excellent two-way play, but then he can turn around and make dazzling offensive moves that leave viewers stunned. Check out this goal, where Datsyuk simply splits the defense of the Nashville Predators...

Pavel Datsyuk Embarrasses Entire Predators Team

Pavel Datsyuk is as good of a stick-handler as you will ever see, and on Tuesday night he again proved exactly why. Check out Datsyuk’s incredible goal which included him skating past the entire Predators team and not apologizing one time. Easy candidate for goal of the year in the NHL. The goal also tied up the game 3-3 late in the third period but Nashville prevailed 4-3 in...

Two Red Wings alumni-ish notes: Cheli’s Chili’s in Dearborn is closing, and McCarty’s writing a book

Of Red Wings-related note in the, "These stories didn't fit into the recap, they involve Wings alumni and their business interests, and hell, they're important" category: This isn't good news if you've enjoyed going to Cheli's Chili's Dearborn location to watch Wings games. The Detroit Free Press's Silva Rector reports that the Dearborn branch...

St. James calls out underachieving Red Wings forward Valtteri Filppula

I spent a significant chunk of last night's recap wondering whether Valtteri Filppula's playing his way out of town given his status as an unrestricted free agent-to-be, the salary cap going down this summer while several of the Wings' top prospects are coming off their entry-level deals, given the NHL-readiness of players like Gustav Nyquist, Joakim Andersson and Tomas...

Pavel Datsyuk goes one-on-four to score goal (VIDEO)

Pavel Datsyuk’s dangles are borderline unfair.  Tuesday night at Nashville with the Red Wings trailing 3-2 late in the third, Datsyuk decided that he didn’t need no stinkin’ teammates. Pav took the puck out of the Wings’ zone, headed up the center of the ice where he met three Predators waiting at their blue line.  Instead of the drop-and-chase, Datsyuk went magician-like...

How to Beat the Goalie: Howard

(Photo by: Tom Gromak/Flickr) Entering the season, the Detroit Red Wings have high expectations for Jimmy Howard. The American born goaltender will have to be strong with the loss of star defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom and all the injuries the Red Wings are facing. Howard has been decent as of late, but with backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson breathing down his neck for any...

Pavel Datsyuk beats five Nashville Predators to score goal

Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk is simply amazing.  The things he can do with a puck are absolutely astounding.  He scored this incredible goal on Tuesday night against the Nashville Predators to tie the game late in the third period.  Not many players have the ability to skate through five players and then beat one of the best goalies in the NHL.  You could see Datsyuk...

Pavel Datsyuk scores goal after skating past entire Nashville Predators defense (Video)

Last night, Detroit Red Wings speedster Pavel Datsyuk might have scored the most impressive goal of the shortened NHL season so far. It happened in the third period of the Red Wings game against the Nashville Predators as Pavel took the puck from his own end and skated past most of the Nashville defense to get a solid shot attempt against Nashville's Pekka Rinne. Watch...

Red Wings-Predators wrap-up: was this a belief-builder or just another case of not gettin’ ‘er done?

The Detroit Red Wings may very well look back on Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime loss to Nashville, a game which they trailed 2-0, started without Mikael Samuelsson (broken hand?), finished without Jimmy Howard (Blurry vision? Concussion?) and nearly finished without Niklas Kronwal (hit from behind) and Cory Emmerton (blocked a shot with his face), and almost lost 3-2 until Pavel...

TDSS Roundtable: Trying to Fix What Ails the Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings will be one-third of the way through their regular season following Tuesday night’s game in Nashville. And, headed into that one, the Wings sit on the outside looking in at the playoff race, in ninth place in the Western Conference. Injuries have taken their toll throughout the Wings’ lineup, forcing them to rely on many a young player up front and to make...

The Main Hatchway’s Given In

Just go ahead and let it fly.  The vomit.  Don't be embarrassed.  We'll laugh, because watching adults throw up is funny.  But we'll be spewing vomitus at the same time, which will ramp up the hilarity to a redolent degree. Mikael Samuelsson is on the PP point.  Tatar is the "big net front presence".  Dan Cleary on the first unit. The Wings have lost...
