Found May 12, 2014 on The Detroit Sports Site:
The United States’ final game of the IIHF Worlds group stage was one to forget — a 6-1 loss to Russia — but Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader did produce a highlight. Abdelkader, playing on the same roster as Detroit teammate Danny DeKeyser, scored in the second period to pull USA within 3-1. Here’s a look at the goal, via a Russian broadcast:

Jimmy Howard surprises special fan before her surgery

When Kelly Rothe walked into the Red Wings' locker room, she nearly spoiled the surprise that was waiting for her. While the original plan had been to save her favorite player's locker for last, Kelly made a bee line for the "Howard" nameplate before anyone could even think about stopping her. Filled with sheer joy, Kelly began rummaging through a gift bag that...

Tomas Tatar Falls Off Bench During World Championship Team Photo

Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar has some free time on his hands since his team was ousted by the Boston Bruins in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the Slovak is keeping his skates sharp during the offseason.

‘A Day in the Life’ and a little product placement

Via RedWingsFeed, this is definitely...Different. The Red Wings posted a "Day in the Life" video chronicling Justin Abdelkader, and it's a few months old (and sponsored by Nutrilite), but it offers a slightly more casual 24/7-style look into a player's daily routine: I'm guessing that this video was posted today as Abdelkader, Danny DeKeyser and Team...

Red Wings’ scouts, front office are busy building the 2014-2015 team behind the scenes

The Red Wings' front office has probably wrapped up its exit meetings with the Wings' players by now, and as the Under-18 World Championships wrapped up, the amateur scouts may have a finalized their list of draft picks... But the Wings' scouts are still very busy. Some of the European scouts are doubtlessly in Minsk, Belarus, watching Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, Danny...

Red Wings at the Worlds: Abdelkader’s goal lone highlight as U.S., Slovakia, Czechs lose

The Red Wings' players taking part in the World Championships had a case of the Mondays. Before I shut down due to thunderstorms and lightning booming causing my internet to get herky-jerky, I watched part of Slovakia's 5-3 loss to France. It'd be charitable to say that the Slovaks played down to the level of their opponent--in all honesty, the Slovaks looked like they...

Red Wings evening news: on the Griffins, Smith and goals, goals goals

Amongst this evening's crop of Red Wings-related stories: The Grand Rapids Griffins' playoff slogan is Defend the Cup--a slogan which the NHL's players may or may not want to take to heart--but at present, the Griffins' status as having dropped both of this past weekend's games in Texas means that it's more like, "Holy crap, we need to avoid elimination...
