Because a day cannot go by without a Detroit Red Wings player suffering an injury, forward Valtteri Filppula is questionable for Wednesday’s game in Los Angeles against the Kings.
Filppula did not practice Tuesday. Take it away, Helene St. James and Ansar Khan:
#RedWings F Valtteri Filppula not on ice. GM Ken Holland says Filppula is a little injured, day-to-day

Filppula not skating. Has undisclosed injury. Holland said “we’ll see tomorrow” on his status for Wednesday game.

Filppula’s absence would force Mike Babcock to, yet again, shuffle his lines. Already out for Wednesday’s game are Darren Helm and Todd Bertuzzi, though the Wings are hoping to have Johan Franzen back in the lineup.
If Franzen does indeed lace ‘em up, he may take Filppula’s spot on Henrik Zetterberg’s line.
Filppula suffered a knee injury while playing overseas during the lockout, though he did not miss any games with the Wings. Ken Holland reportedly said that this latest injury is unrelated to that knee issue.

DETROIT -- There's a silver lining for the Detroit Red Wings despite their injury woes this season.
It's created an opportunity for a few of the young prospects to come up from the minors and get valuable NHL experience.
Two of those players, forwards Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson, were having tremendous success in the American Hockey League before being called up.
Brian Lashoff has done everything Mike Babcock and the Detroit Red Wings have asked of him since he was pressed into duty in an injury-depleted defensive corps. Monday, the Wings rewarded the 22-year-old blue liner.

So here we sit with the Red Wings 19 games played which is normally right around the quarter mark of the season but with the lockout shortened year we’re just five games away from the halfway point.
Detroit sits 9-7-3 after two impressive wins at home against Nashville 4-0 and Vancouver 8-3 which in addition to the impressiveness were much needed confidence boosters before the...
DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings have signed defenseman Brian Lashoff to a three-year, 2.175 million contract. The team announced the move Monday. Lashoff has a goal and two assists in 15 games this season, his first in the NHL. The 22-year-old native of Albany, N.Y., has made the most of his opportunities to fill in for banged-up defenseman in Detroit. The undrafted...
Like Brian Lashoff? Well hopefully the answer was yes, because he's here to stay for a bit.
Lashoff received some security on Monday, when the Red Wings signed him to a three-year, $2.175 million extension. It's a one-way deal (NHL-salary only) all three years, with a salary-cap hit of $725,000.
“He's played 18-to-20 minutes a night and a lot of nights he’s...
Let’s just say that the Detroit Red Wings did not get the benefit of many friendly whistles in a 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night. The Wings found themselves facing a 5-on-3 on two separate occasions, totaling about four minutes of game time — and the Kings tied the game at one on the second of those two-man advantages, midway through the third.
And yet, for...

It's only fitting that as the Detroit Red Wings gear up to take on the Los Angeles Kings this evening at the Staples Center in the City of Angels, talk earlier this week began about an NHL proposal to the NHLPA surrounding conference realignment and a new playoff format.
Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada was the first to...
Kyle Quincey with one of the stranger goals this season. Puck is comes off of the glove hand of Bernier, hits him in the back of the head and directs into the back of the net.
I can't pull a Malik and stick around for the end of the game, so feel free to use this post for post-game too.
George does need a new laptop and will be shopping early tomorrow for one, so hopefully...
After improbable back-to-back (convincing) wins over NSH (4-0) and VAN (8-3), DET are currently holding down the 8th spot in the West. The PP has finally found a pulse, Jimmy is on fire, and the Chinese Fire Drill in the "D" zone is becoming a rarity - - at least at JLA.
Of the Wings (9-7-3) 21 points, 15 were earned at home (7-4-1). DET are a meager 2-3-2 on the...
They say you should just throw the puck at the net, and this goal by Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is exactly why. His shot went of Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier’s glove, bounced straight up in the air, hit off his head/back and bounced it. Rob Scuderi tried to knock it out of the air but completely whiffed. Bernier had no idea where the puck was and...
from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo,
To Wings GM Ken Holland, there is a simple reason why players such as Brunner go undiscovered for so long: The NHL is the best men’s league in the world, and players become men at different ages. Some are men at 18. Most grow into men later – some much later, some in out-of-the-way places.
Brunner is listed at 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds...

The Red Wings fall in a frustrating manner 2 – 1 to the L.A. Kings. Pressure on both ends of the ice was strong all game. Very few scoring chances were produced for either side and puck possession was the story of the game. The Wings’ first opportunity of the game came at [...]
