Detroit Red Wings Playoff Preview: Discussing the Matchup With the Tampa Bay Lighting And Beyond

The usual things are certain in life, like death, taxes and many vegetables not tasting good. Now, adding the Detroit Red Wings making the playoffs to that list might be a good idea.

How Good is Jimmy Howard Heading Into the Playoffs?

View image | The NHL playoffs begin this week.  I figured it’d be a good idea for TopSportsReport to have rankings to help fans understand the playoffs better, make their predictions better, and also, simply increase discussion surrounding this year’s playoffs. The goalie is one of the most important players on the ice, if not the most important.  Taking...

Detroit Red Wings: Howard benched, Mrazek to start Sunday

Thursday’s 6-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks needs to be a wake-up call for the Detroit Red Wings.  The Wings have struggled greatly as of late, and are slowly watching their playoff hope slip away. With the playoffs only a few weeks away, the Red Wings are still in third place in the Atlantic Division.  However, the Ottawa Senators and the Boston Bruins are slowly creeping up...

Detroit Red Wings Should Ride Goaltender Petr Mrazek, Not Jimmy Howard, Into Playoffs

Petr Mrazek has earned the benefit of the doubt, and should be the Red Wings’ starter over Jimmy Howard. (douglasgallery30, Flickr) The Detroit Red Wings haven’t been setting the world on fire down the stretch lately, and that has plenty to do with many elements including the goaltending of Jimmy Howard. Howard has started the last three games, and two have been ugly Detroit...

Detroit Red Wings: Slumping at the right time?

The Detroit Red Wings (38-21-11) have lost six out their last eight games. The recent trend of winning one game and dropping their next two has Hockeytown fans looking for the panic button. How could this be happening now, this late into the season? Everything was going so well. Two weeks ago the playoffs looked all but locked up, but now a 2013-14 Toronto Maple Leafs’ type of...

VIDEO: Jimmy Howard made a remarkable off the glass save Wednesday night

With the game tied 1-1 late in the third period, Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard came up with an insane behind the back, blocker save of sorts. The play happened when Ryan McDonagh’s slapper came back off the active JLA glass something Howard I’m sure knows pretty well. Not to mention it’s something Detroit fans have seen before whether it’s going against the Wings or...

Rapping Red Wings: Be Critical Of Jimmy Howard in Regulation, But Blame NHL for Shootouts

Maybe I’m simply a hockey purist, but in the old days, there was something to be said about a good, old-fashioned regular season tie. After laying it on the line for three periods and overtime, both teams got to feel like they came away with something. In plenty of battles, it’s was the only just way to decide a tough game. Giving both teams something to feel good about following...
