Notes: Weiss struggling to score; Smith improving

The New Year has not been so kind to Stephen Weiss but the Red Wings aren't worried about him. Since his assist at Boston Dec. 29, Weiss has gone six games without a point. "When you look at the piece of paper and whether he scored or not, he didn't score," Wings coach Mike Babcock told reporters in St. Louis. "So I think all players go through that. The reality is if I look at St...

The Detroit Red Wings (17-8-9) haven’t won a game since December 7. The dramatic shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche Sunday night marks the Red Wings sixth straight defeat in the past two weeks.

Brendan Smith Wanting To Fight Zdeno Chara Was The Cutest Thing Ever

The Red Wings aren’t exactly known for fighting (ie. they don’t fight), and that made Brendan Smith’s faux attempt at throwing down with Zdeno Chara just that much more funny on Sunday. Brendan did his best to let the big fella know that he wanted to throw down, and Chara responded with only a giggle. Just perfect. The Bruins would also get the last laugh as they evened the...
