Marian glub glub Hossa

Former Wing and current Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa may or may not have chosen to allow the presence of Niklas Kronwall's stick to allow his belly to hit the ice... And if you didn't see the Babcockian, "That was a dive," check this uppy out: Continue reading "Marian glub glub Hossa"

Just ‘protecting himself?’

Come To Poppa

The Detroit Red Wings have been in the Western Conference for like, I don't know, 30 years. Something like that.  The specifics escape me and most of you know the weight I give facts, anyway. Well, there are a few--facts, that is--that I like to fall back on. They help me sleep.  They make me feel warm, almost like the Speed Racer footy pajamas I wore my freshman (and only...

All Bob Murray

On the Detroit series I didn’t expect to have meetings with players at this moment. But we got beat. We got schooled. We got schooled by a very good playoff team and they schooled us from top to bottom, and it’s something we have to deal with here going forward. We got beat. On losing Toni Lydman to injury Losing Toni Lydman in this series really hurt more than you...

Out Of Gas In The Motor City?

I just think the Wings emptied the tank while upsetting the Ducks. Frankly, it's remarkable what they've already accomplished this year, given the losses of defensemen Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart from last season, and this season's patchwork blue line. Chicago is just too deep and too talented. Blackhawks in 6. Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, find out why...

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Red Wings vs. Blackhawks

By Eli Epstein, TiqIQ It took seven games, but a Detroit Red Wings team that almost didn’t make the playoffs showed up in a big way in the first round, ousting the second-seeded Anaheim Ducks in a series not many pundits expected the Wings to win. Not only did Detroit move on, they did so behind the stellar net play of star goalie Jimmy Howard, who posted a 2.74 Goals Against...

How Bad Could It Hurt?

I admit I am a day late on this one.  I read it yesterday and decided you the reader may have had enough of Leafs talk so I did not post but did re-tweet it. After a few emails asking me about it, I decided to post it today. from Sean McIndoe of Grantland, There’s a secret that Toronto fans aren’t supposed to talk about, but after what happened Monday night, I don...

Who are the Red Wings’ ‘x factors?’ The ‘kids’ and Abdelkader

If I was to give the Red Wings an x-factor edge in terms of managing to surprise and perhaps damage the Blackhawks (if we are to believe the Chicago Tribune's Steve Rosenbloom, the Wings have no idea how good the "new" Patrick Kane is) when the second-round series begins tonight (8 PM, NBCSN/CBC/97.1 FM), I'd suggest that the Hawks can only partially account for...

By Western Conference standards, the Red Wings-Hawks series is a ‘commuter’

The Detroit Red Wings spent the vast majority of "off days" during their seven-game series against the Anaheim Ducks in the air, making cross-continental trips, but the combination of plain old strange scheduling (the Wings and Hawks play tonight at 8 PM, on NBCSN and the CBC, though Fox Sports Detroit will air a post-game show; after that, the teams don't play again...

How CHI got here: W  2-1 (OT), W 5-2, L 2-3 (OT), W 3-0, W 5-1 - - - apparently, by laying waste to Minny (see below).

Kings Continue To Impress

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, That swagger comes from rediscovering the ways in which the Kings found success last season. Jonathan Quick stingy in net? Check. A blue-line corps led by Drew Doughty, Robyn Regehr, Rob Scuderi and Slava Voynov balancing swift puck-moving abilities with strong physical play? Check. A suffocating penalty kill? Check. Rolling four forward...
