Luckily, the Ottawa Senators...

After a couple weeks of uninspiring play, the Detroit Red Wings (40-22-12) defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in convincing fashion, 4-0, Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.

Detroit Red Wings: Howard benched, Mrazek to start Sunday

Thursday’s 6-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks needs to be a wake-up call for the Detroit Red Wings.  The Wings have struggled greatly as of late, and are slowly watching their playoff hope slip away. With the playoffs only a few weeks away, the Red Wings are still in third place in the Atlantic Division.  However, the Ottawa Senators and the Boston Bruins are slowly creeping up...

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...

Detroit Red Wings Should Ride Goaltender Petr Mrazek, Not Jimmy Howard, Into Playoffs

Petr Mrazek has earned the benefit of the doubt, and should be the Red Wings’ starter over Jimmy Howard. (douglasgallery30, Flickr) The Detroit Red Wings haven’t been setting the world on fire down the stretch lately, and that has plenty to do with many elements including the goaltending of Jimmy Howard.

GIF: Darren Helm spears Mike Smith in the junk

We’ve mocked Mike Smith a lot over the last few weeks. First, he jumped over a shot and allowed a bizarre goal. Next, he shot the puck off of Brandon Sutter and into his own net. What could possibly follow up those two incidents? How about a spear in the junk from Darren Helm? Smith has a reputation for diving, but it looks like Helm makes decent contact.

Video: Drew Miller punched the Blues logo off Petteri Lindbohm’s helmet

The Blues-Red Wings game from Sunday is one most of us never want to talk about ever again. That is, the only way we will talk about it is if it’s in regards to the NHL admitting they blew the broken stick call in overtime. With that in mind, there was one pretty noteworthy incident worth sharing. Petteri Lindbohm stood up to Drew Miller following a big hit on Jori Lehtera, but...

Ken Hitchcock comments on Detroit’s controversial OT goal

The Red Wings defeated the Blues in overtime on a disputed goal which was scored with a broken stick. The officials elected to not review the goal (?) and instead decided that the goal counted.

Detroit Red Wings May Have Found Their Brad Stuart in Marek Zidlicky

The addition of Marek Zidlicky has fortified the Red Wings’ blue line almost like the addition of Brad Stuart in 2008.

In case you missed it last night, Marek Zidlicky made an almost immediate impact upon his arrival in Detroit.
