According to the Detroit Red Wings, Johan Franzen will miss Tuesday's game with Anaheim while going through the concussion protocol for this hit yesterday from Tampa Bay's  Radko Gudas. Franzen received and unsportsmanlike penalty on the play for complaining about the hit and non-call. The NHL takes a look at all hits but will they take further action on this hit?

Video: Gustav Nyquist Robbed of Goal by Early Whistle

The Detroit Red Wings have been burned plenty in the past by early whistles and the NHL’s ridiculous “intent to blow” rule. Some lazy officiating cost them another goal Sunday vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning. Early in the first period, Gustav Nyquist circled the goal and fired a backhander on Ben Bishop, then tapped home a rebound after Bishop fumbled with the puck. Except …...

Red Wings off-day news: injury updates; on Jurco, Yzerman, the Hockeytown Winter Festival and Frk

I actually managed to get some sleep (rare!) thanks to Paul holding down the fort (and the Wings won't practice today; they will, however, make a significant charitable donation to Detroit's Clark Park rink at 3 PM, and again, the team practices outdoors at Comerica Park on Wednesday), but I've woken up to predictable news regarding the Red Wings' injury front from...

Masterton Leader

About three weeks ago I picked Darren Helm of the Detroit Red Wings as the Masterton Trophy leader.  At that time I noted he was in a tight race with Manny Malhotra of Carolina.  Both overcame significant injury that kept them from contributing to their teams last season.  Their injury problems go back a couple years at least.  Both have made significant comebacks this season...
