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...

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Columbus Blue Jackets When you're making just your second playoff appearance in franchise history, "dark horse" is a label that applies. If they are somehow able to take down the Metropolitan Division-winning Pittsburgh Penguins, we'll upgrade them to Cinderella status. Could it happen? When you have the defending Vezina Trophy...

Red Wings close regular season with shutout win over Blues

Well, that was an impressive way for the Red Wings to end the regular season. Facing a quality opponent in need of a victory, the Red Wings were able to rest several key players, yet had enough on hand to defeat the slumping St. Louis Blues 3-0. The victory gave the Red Wings a 39-28-15 record, with 93 points, to end the regular season. Now the truly important stuff begins. The...

Video: Riley Sheahan’s Late Goal Extends Detroit Red Wings’ Playoff Streak to 23

Nyquist Isn’t The Only Newly Valuable Option In Motown; Tomas Tatar, Sheahan Worth Adding

The Detroit Red Wings are one of the few teams so well built that they can sustain a playoff run despite missing four of their top players, two of which are point-per-game guys or better. How, you might wonder, is this feat possible? That'd be solid drafting, a commitment to player development and a fantastic scouting department, all of which Wings GM Ken Holland has in spades...

Detroit 2, Edmonton 1 (SO): Red Wings sloppy but managed to beat Oilers

The Red Wings needed this game to balance their post-Olympics math, to avoid having to cram even harder. They managed to pass Friday night at Joe Louis Arena with a 2-1 shootout victory over the Edmonton Oilers, though it was hardly a textbook performance of how to play well this time of year. “I felt like whole game was sloppy,” Tomas Tatar said after scoring in the shoot...

Detroit Red Wings Finally Get 2 Crucial Points, 2-1 Over EDM

The Detroit Red Wings come up with a huge 2 points against the Edmonton Oilers, winning 2-1 in a shootout. For Edmonton being the 2nd worst defensive team in the league, this game was quite a defensive battle. The lone goal in the first period would be scored by Riley Sheahan at 13:53, when Tomas Tatar took the puck behind Viktor Fasth’s net, and put a quick feed out in front to...

Video: Riley Sheahan Goal Gets the Detroit Red Wings Started in Ottawa

Even if the Detroit Red Wings return to full health, which appears for now as if it will happen approximately never, taking Riley Sheahan out of the lineup may be impossible. Sheahan continued his strong play with an early goal Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators, his fourth of the season and 12th point in just 20 games. This one was a bit of a gift.
