Found February 21, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
Some of the better video’s that get unearthed on the internet because of YouTube are ones from way back when, like this one of Detroit Red Wings legendary right-winger Gordie Howe. Back in the early 70′s, Mr Hockey appeared on the popular game show ‘What’s My Line?’ It was a show where contestants were blind-folded and given a set a questions to figure out who a celebrity guest was. Howe was the face of the NHL for 3 decades until some young kid in Edmonton showed up, so he was quite a big deal back then. This appearance also included his sons, Marty and Mark, who ended up playing many years in the NHL as well. According to the Detroit Free Press, this video will be part of a Hallmark made-for-TV movie set to air in May. H/T Freep

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.

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...

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