As noted in the game-day update post, we're going to hear a significant amount of chatter regarding Ryan Suter and Zach Parise playing at Joe Louis Arena after having spurned the Red Wings' offers to come to Detroit this past summer, and while I don't really hold a grudge against Parise, and am...Mildly annoyed...at Suter, I didn't think that Wings fans would boo either player. The Detroit News's Terry Foster thinks differently, and he's endorsing a hearty booing of the pair every time that they touch the puck: It will be interesting to see if Detroit continues to play the long standing role of jilted lover when the Red Wings play host to the Minnesota Wild tonight at Joe Louis Arena. This will be the first time former free agent stars Zach Parise and Ryan Suter come to town since turning down Red Wings money to play together in Parise's old hometown of Minneapolis. They were two free agents the Red Wings were hot after and expectations were for ...

Wings show Suter, Parise what they're missing

DETROIT Red Wings fans may hold a grudge, but the team has moved on from its unsuccessful run at defenseman Ryan Suter and forward Zach Parise. On Friday night at Joe Louis Arena, the fans booed both Suter and Parise when they were introduced as starters for the Minnesota Wild. They booed Suter nearly every time he touched the puck, which was a lot, considering he played a game...

Wild add prospect Brodin to loaded roster

ST. PAUL, Minn. Another of the teams heralded prospects is headed to the Minnesota Wild. Minnesota recalled defenseman Jonas Brodin on Thursday from the Houston Aeros. Brodin, 19, was the teams 10th overall pick in the 2011 NHL draft. Brodin had spent his time since the draft in his native Sweden but turned pro this year, playing in nine games for Houston. He suffered a broken...

Wild Friday: Brodin filling in for Spurgeon

FRIDAY'S STORY LINE: With defenseman Jared Spurgeon out of the lineup Friday night with a lower-body injury, 19-year-old defenseman Jonas Brodin will make his much-anticipated NHL debut in Detroit. The rookie defenseman is one of Minnesota's top defensive prospects after being a first-round pick in 2011. "I am excited," he said Friday. "It's going to...

Red Wings-Wild wrap-up and overnight report: Wings slowly finding their footing?

If you only watched the Minnesota Wild out-shoot the Red Wings 11-6 in the first period of what turned out to be an ugly but livable-withable 5-3 Red Wings victory, or watched the Wings take two of their eight(!) penalties within the first ten minutes of said first period, you would have been forgiven for assuming that the Wings were on their way to yet another predictable 2013 season...

TODD BER-TUZ-ZI! Wings forward scores two in 5-3 win over Wild

Whatever was ailing Red Wings forward Todd Berutzzi to start the season didn’t seem to have any effect Saturday night as the veteran exploded for two goals in a 5-3 win over the Minnesota Wild from the Joe. As the Wings remained scoreless in the first period thus far this season, Damien Brunner continued to impress opening the scoring for Detroit with a power play goal to give...

Detroit vs Minnesota: Time to get Started

It's easy to get frustrated when your team can't score, cant convert on the power play, cant kill penalties and leaves your goalie out to dry like their defense consists of Brett Lebda and 5 of his cousins. This team is good, and yes the defense isn't what it used to be, but that will change. Three games gone on an already depleted schedule. 45 games left to change...

Missed opportunities haunt the Wild in 5-3 road loss to Detroit

Maybe its the side effect of a shortened season but the line between celebration and panic is incredibly thin.  A poster over on the Wild.com message boards named "Geo" has a signature that is all to true amongst hockey fans.  "Three wins in a row means a Stanley Cup, three losses in a row means trade everybody."  Exaggerated, but more or less true.  Case...
