Twas the Night Before Wings-mas

Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom is ranked by most as one of the best defenseman in the history of the NHL. But Lidstrom's status in Detroit ranks even higher at this time of year, when he becomes St. Nick. Former Red Wings defenseman Larry Murphy, a.k.a. Uncle Murph, tells us all about it in a very funny reading of "Twas the Night Before Wings-mas." Can you come...

Red Wings overnight report: recharging batteries, the Hemsky-Winter complex and pre-Christmas Mule

The Detroit Red Wings had hoped to return from their 3-game swing through Western Canada humming Meatloaf’s “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad,” but instead, the Wings began their Christmas break when Red Bird III landed at Metro Airport just before 4:30 in the morning on Friday, most likely dropping the f-bombs from Tenacious D’s “The Road” (NSFW link) instead. After playing...

All the Red Wings want for Christmas is, well, Christmas

Despite suggestions to the contrary, the Detroit Red Wings’ organization and players are pretty flexible in terms of accommodating requests from the NHL to engage in the kinds of promotional activities which involve playing on holidays or sloughing through particularly nasty travel schedules to give the league a TV ratings boost, but the Wings have consistently stated that there...

Red Wings Christmas morning report: A wonderful fundraiser and hoping for a Lidstrom year to grow on

On Christmas morning, or what is more like when kids tend to wake mom and dad up and ask, “Can we open our presents yet?” and mom and dad say, “It’s 4 AM!” one might become a little philosophical, and the stories I’m about to present you could have been tossed off with a particularly moralistic bent, especially as a certain former teammate of this morning’s protagonist...
