Fox Sports Detroit:
Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom is ranked by most as one of the best defenseman in the history of the NHL.
But Lidstrom's status in Detroit ranks even higher at this time of year, when he becomes St. Nick.
Former Red Wings defenseman Larry Murphy, a.k.a. Uncle Murph, tells us all about it in a very funny reading of "Twas the Night Before Wings-mas."
Can you come up with a rhyme for Franzen?

The Detroit Red Wings had hoped to return from their 3-game swing through Western Canada humming Meatloaf’s “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” but instead, the Wings began their Christmas break when Red Bird III landed at Metro Airport just before 4:30 in the morning on Friday, most likely dropping the f-bombs from Tenacious D’s “The Road” (NSFW link) instead.
Updated w/ Kronwall’s hit: The Detroit Red Wings came late to the party and found themselves devoured by their own mistakes—and what only Larry Murphy could call a “good play” on a ridiculous insurance goal—playing far too indecisively for far too long against a Canucks team with which they spent the morning complimenting, dropping a 4-2 decision.
If this makes any sense...

Backup goaltender Ty Conklin allowed three goals on the first 15 shots Thursday en route to a 3-2 loss to the Flames, dropping the Wings to 8-10 on the road.
The points of controversy during the Detroit Red Wings’ 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks involved a hit for which Niklas Kronwall was neither fined nor suspended and a goal after which Jimmy Howard was not penalized for punching one Jannik Hansen, but just when you thought we were going to put the controversy behind us, ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun (via RedWingsFeed) reports that the...

Tomas Holmstrom and Roberto Luongo stood to feature as one of the duels-within-a-game Wednesday night between Holmstrom's Red Wings and Luongo's Canucks at Rogers Arena.
Detroit lost last night, oh well it happens. The team played weak as a whole and came up short. Lets move on to the Flames. This should be an easy win for the Wings, and a good Christmas present to the fans.Click the jump for more
The Flames may have beat the Wild in a 2-1 snoozefest on Tuesday night, but they are also 1-2-2 in their last 5. To put it simple, the Flames are a...
Toronto Maple Leafs’ James Reimer and Buffalo Sabres’ Ryan Miller both got shelved for a bit this season as victims of goalie crashing.
Brian Gionta collided with Reimer while Milan Lucic barreled through Miller in open ice. It would have been a shame if Jimmy Howard of the Detroit Red Wings came out seriously injured after last night.
Twitter erupted and some were...

For those who didn't watch the Canucks and Red Wings game last night it was good match for a pre-Christmas contest. In fact as the third period moved on it became quite heated particularly after Kronwall leveled Kesler with a huge hit along the boards.
I felt the hit was clean except that Kronwall 'launched' and left his...

Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg readily admits that even for a slow starter, he was way behind.
He'll face a Flames lineup missing several key players, as Rene Bourque is suspended, and David Moss (Michigan), Alex Tanguay and Matt Stajan all are out with various ailments.
