Kucherov gets Kronwalled

The hit of the night. Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall steamrolls Tampa Bay forward Nikita Kucherov. Get off the track if you don't want to get run over. I guess you could make the argument that Kronwall hits Kucherov in the chops with his elbow. That being said, I see nothing wrong with this hit.

Jon Cooper and the rest of the NHL need to stop whining

Tampa coach Jon Cooper accuses Detroit of cheating

Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper might have just given the Red Wings some bulletin board material. The Lightning bench boss told the Tampa Bay Times that the Red Wings are the league experts in interfering with opposing players without getting called for the required penalty."There are 30 teams in the league, and nobody does it more than the Detroit Red Wings, hands down," Cooper...

Detroit Red Wings weekly: One win away to bypass the storm

The Detroit Red Wings have a chance to silence the critics and put their end of regular season collapse in the rear-view mirror. All it takes is one more win and they have two shots to do it. Realistically the collapse made the Red Wings miss out on finishing second in the Atlantic Division, which meant having home ice advantage in the first round against the Tampa Bay Lightning...

Detroit Red Wings: When adversity strikes

They blew it. There is no other way to put it. The Detroit Red Wings were five and half minutes away from a 3-1 series over the Tampa Bay Lightning and then the unthinkable happened. A 2-0 lead vanished into thin air. Tyler Johnson finished the job off with the knockout blow in overtime. Hockeytown is stunned. The worst loss of the season comes at the worst possible time. Just moments...

Video: Pavel Datsyuk is a funny dude.

YouTube Pavel Datsyuk is a funny guy.  He has some of the best (if not the best) hands in the NHL.  He can dangle like no other. He’s as gentlemanly as they come. They might as well re-name the Lady Byng trophy the Pav.  He can snipe when he needs to.  He dishes helpers like a philanthropist. But as good a hockey player as he is, he may be equally as funny.  YouTuber “The...

PHOTOS: Red Wings “Octopi Girl” Brittany is pretty darn cool

Babcock sticking with Petr Mrazek for Game 3 the right move

One thing about Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock: When he tells you what he is going to do, you can take it to the bank. Babcock can be pretty blunt when you ask him about his team’s play on any given night, or a certain player’s performance. He will give you his honest […] The post Babcock sticking with Petr Mrazek for Game 3 the right move appeared first on Along the Boards.

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...

The Left Wing Lock: Mrazek to start in regular season finale, Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Kronwall out

The Red Wings clinched their 24th straight postseason appearance Thursday night but did it despite a 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens. It was thanks to the Florida Panthers and their 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins that the Wings head into today’s game with the playoffs not on the line. However that doesn’t mean Detroit has nothing to play for. In their regular season finale...

NHL ships nets which have room for cameras inside posts

You might remember back in January we discussed the fact the NHL was going to be experimenting with cameras inside the goal posts. The objective being that the league would have another look to call on for goal reviews and the new angle might allow for a better view of close plays. At the time, it was pretty difficult to imagine what the league had in mind, but the Detroit Red...
