from Ansar Khan of Mlive, The Detroit Red Wings will try to reach the 100-point mark for the 12th consecutive season, extending their own NHL record, when they visit the St. Louis Blues tonight at Scottrade Center.
Detroit has 99 points with three games remaining.
“I’d like to get that just because (general manager) Kenny Holland’s got that streak going,’’ coach Mike Babcock said after Wednesday’s optional morning skate. “San Jose looks like it’s going to make the playoffs. We’re the only two teams that have made the playoffs every year since the lockout. That says a lot about ownership and consistency we’ve had.
“But all the stuff doesn’t matter much. It’s all about this year now.’‘

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said center Darren Helm might start skating by the end of the week, or early next week.
“We still expect he’s going to be ready in the first round of the playoffs; not Game 1, but anytime from Game 2 on,’’ Holland said. “He’s done pretty good healing the last nine days.’‘

ST. LOUIS -- Johan Franzen scored on consecutive shots in the third period to end Brian Elliott's shutout streak after more than 3 1-2 games, and Todd Bertuzzi netted the lone goal in a shootout as the Detroit Red Wings rallied to beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Wednesday night.

For a site named after one Darren Helm, there's been a dearth of discussion of him lately. Partly because Drew's been in and out around here and he's the one with the well deserved man-crush on #43. But partly because Helmer's been out for a while. But today, we got some good news on the kid.

According to MLive’s Ansar Khan, the Red Wings have officially signed Riley Sheahan to a 3-year, entry-level contract, and they summoned the power forward to Detroit for the move, but that doesn’t mean he’ll play against the New Jersey Devils tonight (7:30 PM EDT, FSD/MSG/97.1 FM)...
“I’m not going to take a look at him,’’ [Wings coach Mike] Babcock said. “ I’d...
DET (48-27-5) are 4th in Conference again thanks to a miraculous come-from-behind road victory at STL last night. The Wings rallied from, what had to be total dejection going down 2 goals in the 3rd. The PP has become indescribably bad. At one time, in the not too distant past, you could reasonably expect it to score a goal per game, it was so good. Nowadays, you just hope...

Three games to go and with two of those last three coming against cenral division foes playoff hockey starts tonight. Detroit travels down to the land of stupid arches and stupid "fans" to face the upstart St. Louis Blues in their final meeting of the regular season. It's time to show these kiddies what 21 straight years of making the playoffs means.Puck drops at 7...
Wings come back from 2-0 down with six minutes left to win in a shootout. That's a huge two points for Detroit. And how did it all happen?Jump to find out:
The only team that can beat Detroit is Detroit. St. Louis scored twice because of turnovers and Detroit scored twice because of great plays. Not to say that St. Louis was handed a point tonight, because they played well...
Got some good news, gang...The Namesake is back on the ice already.Helm is feeling so much better, that he took to the ice at this morning's skate."Before I came in today, I wasn't even sure when I could get back on the ice." --Darren HelmBut get back on the ice he did. That quote came to us via The Detroit News.More on Helm's somewhat imminent return.
Did I just write one of these? Whatever. Wings lost 2-1 to the Devils tonight. Seems to me they were just gassed after playing an OT game on the road against the Blues and just couldn't finish strong. A wasted opportunity, but if they had a day off, I think this game ends differently.Jump for the Recap:
Hudler had a strong game. Late in the second period he made a great...
