Paul for George…
from Ansar Khan of Mlive, After a seven-goal outburst against Columbus on March 26, the Red Wings have scored seven goals in five games. They have not scored more than two goals in any of those games.
“We haven’t scored a lot, but I also think it’s the time of year,’’ Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “I don’t think there’s going to be (a lot of scoring) when you’re playing real good teams.
“I think we perceive ourselves (as) the mighty Red Wings. I think these other teams are trying, too, and have real good players. ... So I don’t think that (lack of offense) is a big surprise to us, (or) that they’re grinding-type games. I think that’s what you need to play to get ready for the playoffs.’‘

It wasn’t long ago that the Detroit Red Wings had lost six straight games and looked like a confused, beaten team. The Wings have looked better since then, but have still showed signs of shakiness that was not present during the team’s 23-game home winning streak.
I’m here to tell you to throw all that out the window.
Now, it’s playoff time, a time where the Detroit Red...
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...

DETROIT -- Red Wings fans will be able to get to bed on time for at least the immediate future.
They don't have to wait up late Saturday to find out where they're going for the first round of the playoffs, and they know that the Wings' opponent will be Nashville.
Detroit starts on the road as the fifth seed in the Western Conference after a 3-2 shootout loss to the...
from Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press, You will never figure him out.
Everybody around the Red Wings says that about Nicklas Lidstrom. Tell them you want to get inside the mind of Lidstrom—to understand his genius, to see what he sees. They laugh or shake their heads.
“It’s impossible to know how he can think that good,” coach Mike Babcock said.
Detroit played well enough to win this game, but they didn't get the breaks they needed to pull it off. The defense is playing fine, Howard is playing well and the forwards are getting good chances, but they just won't go in the frigging net. This has been going on for about two months now. Detroit claimed the 5th spot and will play Nashville. Not the best outcome, but I...
Patrick Kane scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday in the final game of the regular season for both teams.

Viktor Stalberg and Andrew Shaw scored for Chicago. Patrick Sharp had two...

Chicago will finish in 6th and play the Pacific Division champion, to be determined later tonight.

Last night the New Jersey Devils did something they have not been able to do in a very, very long time: beat the Detroit Red Wings in Detroit. Here are some notes on last night's game.
- First off, congratulations to Pete DeBoer on coaching a team in New Jersey that not only reached the playoffs in his first year behind the bench, but hit the 100-point plateau. It's very...
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.
Last season, the Detroit Red Wings nearly dashed the Chicago Blackhawks' playoff hopes in the final game of the regular season.
This time, the Blackhawks could play a spoiler of sorts in Saturday's finale at Joe Louis Arena with a chance to help deny the Red Wings home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.
Chicago fell 4-3 to visiting Detroit on the last day...
