Detroit Red Wings: When adversity strikes

They blew it. There is no other way to put it. The Detroit Red Wings were five and half minutes away from a 3-1 series over the Tampa Bay Lightning and then the unthinkable happened.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock: 'We stole Game 1 and they just stole this game'

Detroit coach Mike Babcock is not the kind of coach who traditionally speaks to his team after games, but he broke from the norm after Thursday night's overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning to lift the spirits of a team down on its luck. The Red Wings had a 2-1 series lead entering Thursday night's Game 4, and they played well enough to extend that lead to 3-1, but the Bolts...

Darren Helm: Positively dangerous for Detroit

When Darren Helm was a rookie with the Red Wings in 2007-08, his nickname was "Danger".The moniker wasn't necessarily a good thing.
