TMR Evening Line: Mike Babcock says Red Wings were ‘ineffective’ in Game 2

I will try to cobble together a solid wrap-up later, but as I look back at the Red Wings' 4-1 loss to Boston in Game 2 (shockingly, Glendening and Miller were on the ice for 3 of the Bruins' 4 goals--2 at even strength--and Lashoff was on the ice for both PPGs against, so that may show you that the Bruins wanted Glendening to battle and lose against Krejci's line), some...

I am going to assume that this Bruins fan knew exactly what he was doing during the Bruins and Red Wings game 2 in Boston on Sunday.

Red Wings set their sights on maintaining discipline for Game 2 against feisty Bruins

The Red Wings were able to turn the other cheek against the Boston Bruins in Game 1 Friday, a key ingredient leading to their 1-0 victory. They’ll have to maintain that composure throughout this series, given Boston’s dangerous power play and desire to get the Red Wings involved in mayhem. “Against a team like this, which was so lethal on the power play, you want to stay...

A…different…take on the Lucic-DeKeyser incident

Despite my protestations to the contrary, I was pretty dang happy with the Red Wings' 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Friday, and I was also pretty dang happy with the fact that the Wings did not react to the Bruins' "truculence," including this gem from Milan Lucic: As Mike Babcock told Fox Sports Detroit's Trevor Thompson when asked whether the...

Mike Babcock Is A Constant In Red Wings’ Injury-Plagued Season (Video)

As the lowest seed to reach the Stanley Cup playoffs in the Eastern Conference, the Detroit Red Wings have their work cut out for them in their quarterfinal series against the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Boston Bruins.

Red Wings-Bruins preview

DETROIT -- On paper, the Boston Bruins should easily dispatch the Detroit Red Wings in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Bruins had a 54-19-9 record, winning the Presidents' Trophy with 117 points. The Wings had a 39-28-15 record (93 points), earning the second wild card in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins scored 261 goals. Only the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim...

At least Wings know they can compete with Bruins

DETROIT -- What does it mean that the Red Wings beat the Boston Bruins in three of the four games they played in the regular season? Not nothing, but not a whole lot either. "If we could take three wins with us into the series, it would be great, but we can't," defenseman Danny DeKeyser said. "Those are thrown out the window. The first to four wins." Goaltender...

Julien vs. Babcock

When it comes to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, everyone likes to talk about the players. What team has the best goaltender? Who has the best scoring power? What powerhouse defenceman can be a game changer? All of those questions are completely valid, but hockey fans very seldom question which team has the superior coach. It's strange that such a key ingredient of a winning team is...

Bruins’ Respect For Red Wings Solidified During Shared Olympic Experiences

BOSTON — If you’re looking to build a successful NHL franchise, it might help to borrow a page or two out of the Detroit Red Wings’ playbook. That’s something Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has done, and it’s worked out pretty well for him. The Bruins and Red Wings are two of the NHL’s model franchises, and it’s no surprise that Chiarelli used the Wings as...

The Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli On The Detroit Red Wings

from Jeff Pini at Boston.com, “Getting back a healthy Daytsuk; that makes them more dangerous,” Chiarelli said. “Who knows what will happen with Zetterberg, he’s lurking in the wings, and [Detroit GM] Kenny [Holland] and [Coach Mike Babcock] will probably pull him out at some point. They’ve had a ton of injuries, and Tatar, Reilly [Smith’s] brother [Brendan]...

Bruins-Red Wings Preview: B’s Likely To Get Stiff Test From Wings

The Boston Bruins won 54 games and collected 117 points. They clinched the Eastern Conference’s top spot with a week left in the season. They won their first Presidents’ Trophy in almost 25 years.
