Red Wings-Capitals set-up and overnight: banged—up Wings must go fourth and salvage their season

As the Detroit Red Wings prepare to face off against the Washington Capitals tonight (7:30 PM EST, FSD/CSN Washington/97.1 FM), they face simple equations which add up to tremendous difficulty in attempting to salvage their season: 1.

No, Winnipeg, Eric’s better

For 40 minutes, the Winnipeg Jets-Carolina Hurricanes game was a slightly loose and fairly unpredictable game. Then, like they have many times before this year, the Jets came out completely flat in the third period, gave up two goals and lost – in regulation, no less – 4-3. To say this was a must-win game for the Jets is akin to using one any hockey cliché – redundant and...

Howling For You

Silliness From Steve Simmons

One of the motivations that keeps me blogging about hockey is seeing some of the nonsense that can be produced by the mainstream media.  That isn’t to say that everything they produce is nonsense but a regular amount of what comes out of the mainstream media is silliness that any good blogger would never even consider posting.  A clear example of this is the Steve Simmons piece...

Does Nashville Have The Playoff Pieces?

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, They have a hotshot No. 1 goalie from Finland. A shutdown strongman with one of the league’s hardest shots. A no-nonsense coach who insists on structure and accountability. A general manager with a degree from a Beanpot school. But unlike the plummeting Bruins, the Predators are playing as though they want to make a run into June. In five...

Red Wings at Sharks: oh, my stars and garters!

A lot of teams have been having trouble stringing wins together lately.  Two in a row against playoff teams is very nice for the Sharks and their fans.  The press does three stars for the game, so tried my hand at three stars for each period of the St. Patrick’s Day game.

Islanders Continue To Do What They Do

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It isn’t quite accurate to suggest the Islanders are on a treadmill to obscurity, for the fact of the matter is Charles Wang’s franchise long ago arrived at that destination. And it isn’t quite correct to state the team is on the road to nowhere, because general manager Garth Snow’s club is headed somewhere no one in the NHL has gone before...

Red Wings-Sharks wrap-up and overnight report: enough (injuries and losing) already!

The Red Wings chose not to incur a fine for flying out of San Jose at a late hour, but given the toll going 0-2-and-1 on their West Coast road trip took upon their chances of harboring any hopes of avoiding a first-round match-up against the Nashville Predators, who the Wings lead by two points in the Central Division standings thanks to a favor from the Los Angeles Kings, and given...

Red Wings-Sharks quick take: limping home with a loser’s point, Helm hurt

The Detroit Red Wings’ 3-2 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks may have been best summarized by the game’s final play: Off a dump-in by Niklas Kronwall which neither Justin Abdelkader nor Danny Cleary could retrieve, Dominic Moore charged up the middle of the ice, gave-and-went with Douglas Murray and skated into the Wings’ zone. When Moore—who knocked Darren Helm (...

They will be adding an intense, two-way, battled-tested hockey ­player who is making $2 million a year. Not bad at all when it comes to adding forward depth.
