Prospect news: Griffins struggling to stop goals, haven’t won at home yet

I didn't expect to say that the Wings got out of October with a 6-2-and-2 record, and I certainly didn't expect to tell you that the Grand Rapids Griffins would end October without a home win and with Mattias Backman, Nick Jensen, Alexey Marchenko, Xavier Ouellet, Ryan Sproul and especially Petr Mrazek struggling to keep pucks out of the net. The Griffins earned their...

Quick take, Red Wings-Kings: Wings bent but didn’t break amidst thrills, chills and spills

The Red Wings closed out their 10-game October schedule with a game that was either just as difficult as you expected it to be or perhaps a little more difficult than you had hoped, defeating the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 despite losing Kyle Quincey to a lower-body injury and perhaps both letting the Kings off the mat once establishing a 4-0 lead and Jimmy Howard--who ended up making...

Red Wings lose Kyle Quincey to ‘lower-body injury’

The Red Wings are leading the Los Angeles Kings 4-0 after most of the 1st period of play, but I guess we know why the Western Canadian coaches were willing to end the period a little early after a pane of glass broke: Wings said Kyle Quincey won't return to the game due to lower-body injury. — Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) November 1, 2014 I wouldn't be upset...

TRICKS or TREATS

Tonight we face the Kings(6-2-2-), and they are coming off a loss to Pittsburgh last night. The Wings(5-2-2-) have another opportunity to take advantage of a team that just played, and these guys are from the West so the time travel cannot be easy.  Both of these clubs have been on the receiving end of some awful tricks by guys wearing referee costumes so, I will resign myself...

Coach Of The Year

It is still early in the season but there is a coach who has put himself forward as the early season coach of the year.  Bruce Boudreau of the Anaheim Ducks is doing a wonderful job.  I have been a Boudreau fan for quite a while.  He was my coach of the year pick last year and the year before.  Boudreau is a good coach who always has his team motivated and playing a strong system...

Tyler Myers Talk And Much More

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, - Buffalo, with some good, young defencemen coming, will be holding on to the right-handed shooter for awhile yet to see if Detroit gets more interested in the defenceman. Dallas would seem a fit, too, because coach Lindy Ruff and his assistant, James Patrick, used to be with the Sabres, but neither the Wings nor the Stars are in...

Mike Green’s Game Is Back

from Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post, Before the Washington Capitals hired Barry Trotz as coach this May, the outside noise surrounding Mike Green had reached him in Nashville. A disappointing 2013-14 season created questions that blared like sirens across the league: Should Washington trade its highest-paid defenseman, with one year left on his contract? How about exercising...

from Darren Dreger of The Dreger Report at TSN, - As our video shows (click here to watch the video), L.A. Kings forward Jarret Stoll was tagged for tripping as Pittsburgh's Brandon Sutter went down inside the blue line.

All Don Van Massenhoven

from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post, Be honest: Who really got under your skin? DVM: Claude Lemieux. [laughs] We just couldn’t get along on the ice. I gave him two 10-minute misconducts in one game, which I had never done to any player. Did the emergence of video replay ever make you second-guess yourself? DVM: No. Most our guys, I think, would tell you...

The Nashville Predators Are An Exciting Team To Watch

from Damien Cox of Sportsnet, The goal totals aren’t yet pushing Nashville into the upper echelon of the NHL’s offensive clubs, but for the first time in a long time, at least the Predators seem to be eagerly trying to score rather than simply preventing goals. Their defence pinches harder now than they ever did under Barry Trotz, and they’ll be a little more aggressive...

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants, While the National Hockey League said Friday it will continue to keep an eye on a federal illegal gambling and money laundering case in Rochester, N.Y., that Thomas Vanek has testified in as the government’s prime witness, the Wild forward likely won’t face league discipline unless he faces criminal charges or bet on hockey.
