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. A 2-0 lead vanished into thin air. Tyler Johnson finished the job off with the knockout blow in overtime. Hockeytown is stunned. The worst loss of the season comes at the worst possible time. Just moments...

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. As Detroit coach Mike Babcock told M Live, Helm would fly around the ice so fast that he was a danger to everyone on the ice, whether they were teammates or opponents.If Helm had that same nickname today, it would be for much more positive reasons.

Video: Pavel Datsyuk is a funny dude.

YouTube Pavel Datsyuk is a funny guy.  He has some of the best (if not the best) hands in the NHL.  He can dangle like no other. He’s as gentlemanly as they come. They might as well re-name the Lady Byng trophy the Pav.  He can snipe when he needs to.  He dishes helpers like a philanthropist. But as good a hockey player as he is, he may be equally as funny.  YouTuber “The...

PHOTOS: Red Wings “Octopi Girl” Brittany is pretty darn cool

All eyes will be on the octopi that will dress the Joe Louis Arena ice and the girls in charge of picking them up this playoff season.  The MVP of the Red Wings ice crew and octopi removal team is Brittany.  She was “discovered” by a friend of the program, Isaac of Uproxx, last playoff season and now runs stuff.

Babcock sticking with Petr Mrazek for Game 3 the right move

One thing about Detroit Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock: When he tells you what he is going to do, you can take it to the bank. Babcock can be pretty blunt when you ask him about his team’s play on any given night, or a certain player’s performance. He will give you his honest […] The post Babcock sticking with Petr Mrazek for Game 3 the right move appeared first on Along the Boards.

Detroit Red Wings weekly: Déjà vu, all even going back to Detroit

Petr Mrazek stole Game 1 away from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday with 44 saves on 46 shots. The Bolts quickly answered back Saturday afternoon with a 5-1 thrashing in Game 2. So, here we are. The series tied 1-1 heading back to Hockeytown. This seems eerie familiar. Oh, yeah. The Wings were in this same situation last year after winning Game 1 on the road before letting Game...

Detroit Red Wings: Detroit vs. Tampa Bay Predictions

As much as I hate to be the guy who picks against the Detroit Red Wings, the Tampa Bay Lightning will be a tough test for Detroit, who just advanced to the postseason for the 24th straight season. I briefly gave my prediction for the series, in fellow Red Wings correspondent Alex Eisen’s weekly article, but I feel the needed to expand upon my prediction for the series.  Arguably...

The Left Wing Lock: Mrazek to start in regular season finale, Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Kronwall out

The Red Wings clinched their 24th straight postseason appearance Thursday night but did it despite a 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens. It was thanks to the Florida Panthers and their 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins that the Wings head into today’s game with the playoffs not on the line. However that doesn’t mean Detroit has nothing to play for. In their regular season finale...

NHL ships nets which have room for cameras inside posts

You might remember back in January we discussed the fact the NHL was going to be experimenting with cameras inside the goal posts. The objective being that the league would have another look to call on for goal reviews and the new angle might allow for a better view of close plays. At the time, it was pretty difficult to imagine what the league had in mind, but the Detroit Red...
