Red Wings: Mrazek’s new RoboCop Peter Griffin mask

A new Red Wings season means a new mask for goaltender Petr Mrazek who’s always seems to get pretty creative with it. This year is no different as he’ll debut some kind of Peter Griffin, RoboCop hybrid Saturday night when he gets the start in goal in Carolina.

The future of the Detroit Red Wings

It’s all over. In a blink of an eye the Detroit Red Wings 2014-15 campaign is finished. The sour taste of a scoreless Game 7 effort is still lingering in the air days later.

The brutal March collapse and the early...
