from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Productivity from the top line typically is not a problem for the Detroit Red Wings because whoever plays with Pavel Datsyuk usually flourishes.
But that hasn’t been the case this season. The Red Wings’ first unit has struggled, particularly Datsyuk’s linemates. Henrik Zetterberg has just one goal and one assist and Danny Cleary has no goals and two assists through seven games.
The line has been intact, for the most part, since the second period of the second game, Oct. 8 at Colorado. Rather than shuffle lines after consecutive losses, coach Mike Babcock will give the group another chance tonight against the San Jose Sharks at Joe Louis Arena.

The Detroit Red Wings have Signed Free Agent Defenseman Mike Commodore to a 1-year $1M contract. Commodore is a 6’5″ 238lbs monster with a mean streak, something that the wings haven’t had since… Well I can’t remember the last time they had a player with this type of anger. This could be that Dallas Drake […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry...Red Wings Sign Mike Commodore...
DETROIT -- What a difference a week makes.
Seven days ago, the Red Wings were cruising along with a perfect 5-0 record. They had back-to-back shutouts, balanced scoring and a favorable schedule, which put them in their customary spot -- at or near the top of the NHL standings.
Two losses later -- to the elite-level Capitals and the hapless Blue Jackets, by a combined score of 11...
Popular Detroit Red Wings defender and twitter personality Mike Commodore was very confused after a high volume of negativity from Los Angeles Kings fans on Twitter yesterday.
The off-season acquisition of the Red Wings says he accidentally clicked “retweet” on an original tweet that questioned the integrity of L.A. as a hockey market.
Here’s the screen grab:
That’s what Bob McKenzie tweeted today, as reposted by the Detroit Sports Site.
The Detroit Red Wings placed forward Fabian Brunnstrom on waivers Sunday, TSN’s Bob MacKenzie reported. Any NHL team can now claim Brunnstrom — if he clears, he’s likely headed to Grand Rapids for a spell. No corresponding roster move was announced.

Mike Modano is known for being a talented former NHL star. But since he retired, he’s turned weird. Need evidence? Check out Mike Modano as the LMFAO guy picture below.
This Mike Modano picture has him in a tiny speedo and a big afro. Honestly, it’s disgusting. I could hardly look at the picture long enough to write this entry.

San Jose went into Joe Louis arena in Detroit and as expected added to the list of exciting Red Wings and Sharks games.
San Jose plays the Red Wings as tough as anybody in the NHL and tonight they grinded out a 4-2 win including an empty net goal. The numbers were almost even in all the departments that matter except face-offs, Detroit dominated that area. Even losing such an important cate...
ST. PAUL, Minn. - Quick update from the Red Wings' morning skate: Patrick Eaves and Fabian Brunnstrom are out tonight as the Wings take on the Wild at XCel Energy Center.
One of the best ways to stop a losing streak is to play a team you've had great success against. For Detroit, that team would be the Minnesota Wild. Detroit has beaten the Wild 28 times in 41 meetings with only 6 regulation losses. That's domination. But the past is in the past and only today matters. Tonight's lineup:Forwards:Zetterberg - Datsyuk - ClearyFilppula - Franzen...

A pair of teams that have been heading in opposite directions lately will get together tonight, as the Detroit Red Wings host the San Jose Sharks at Joe Louis Arena.
