Red Wings overnight report: sorting out the free agency strikeout yields more questions than answers

I am very upset with the way things turned out on Tuesday, but I've chosen to marry myself to "my" Wings no matter how angry or frustrated I might feel regarding a managerial or team performance, and I'm "married" professionally to this blogging job, so I'm going to resist the urge to pull the covers over my head and sulk and try to write an overnight...

Grand Rapids Griffins tie series with Texas Stars via 3-2 win, but injuries are mounting

The Grand Rapids Griffins are probably playing the most offensively-talented team in left in the AHL playoffs, and they had to deal with what was deemed a "precautionary" pulling of Game 3 hat-trick-scorer Tomas Jurco from the game due to an "upper-body injury," as well as losing Jordin Tootoo to some sort of wrist injury (and Tootoo was in because Landon Ferraro...

Wings setting dubious records as they try to continue playoff streak

DETROIT -- The Red Wings have already set a dubious record and are on the verge of setting another Tuesday night in Columbus -- yet they're still in the playoff hunt. When the Wings lost in overtime to the Minnesota Wild Sunday night, they reached 351 man-games lost to injury, the most since 1985-86, when they first started keeping that statistic. The Wings passed the 346 man...

Red Wings’ call-up of Callahan yields Griffins moves…on defense?

File this under, "A little intriguing": the Red Wings may have swapped Landon Ferraro for Mitchell Callahan, but the Griffins' defense must have taken a hit this past weekend, because the Griffins both recalled Max Nicastro from the Toledo Walleye and they signed fellow defenseman Marc McNulty to an amateur try-out (McNulty's Prince George Cougars didn't make...

I'm trying not to get into details, but the last two weeks have obviously involved a difficult time for me health-wise, and as a result, a diminished presence here. I'm on my way to recovery, but it appears that I can't give the same prognosis for the Red Wings' playoff chances ahead of Tuesday's game against Toronto (7:30 PM on FSD and Sportsnet Ontario).

Red Wings prospect news: Griffins take two vs. Milwaukee; Walleye win 2 straight

It is indeed, in the words of my friend Courtney, all sunshine and happiness in Grand Rapids, with perhaps the exception of the lake effect snow. The Grand Rapids Griffins won their second game in as many nights as the 19-5-1-and-1 Griffins defeated the Milwaukee Admirals 5-0.
