Tampa outburst spoils Petr Mrazek's historical bid

Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek looked to be on the verge of history through the first two periods of Thursday night's Game 4 between the Red Wings and the Lightning. The goaltender, who struggled at the end of the regular season, looked great in the postseason and was 20 minutes away from becoming the first rookie since 1937 to record back-to-back shutouts in the NHL playoffs. The feat...

Detroit Red Wings weekly: Déjà vu, all even going back to Detroit

Petr Mrazek stole Game 1 away from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday with 44 saves on 46 shots. The Bolts quickly answered back Saturday afternoon with a 5-1 thrashing in Game 2. So, here we are. The series tied 1-1 heading back to Hockeytown. This seems eerie familiar. Oh, yeah. The Wings were in this same situation last year after winning Game 1 on the road before letting Game...

Bolts Dominate But Can’t Solve Mrazek

Detroit Red Wings: Detroit vs. Tampa Bay Predictions

As much as I hate to be the guy who picks against the Detroit Red Wings, the Tampa Bay Lightning will be a tough test for Detroit, who just advanced to the postseason for the 24th straight season. I briefly gave my prediction for the series, in fellow Red Wings correspondent Alex Eisen’s weekly article, but I feel the needed to expand upon my prediction for the series.  Arguably...

Detroit Red Wings: Time to let the goose loose

Everyone can calm down now. Take a deep breath. Hockeytown, the sky isn’t falling. After a couple weeks of uninspiring play, the Detroit Red Wings (40-22-12) defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in convincing fashion, 4-0, Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.
