Let’s take a quick poll:
Is anyone concerned that the Red Wings have only won 2 out of 7 pre-season games thus far? And that they’ve dropped the last 5 consecutively?

Goals were as follows:
Detroit – Leino (Filppula, Ryno); Maltby (Abdelkader, Delmore)
New York …

Tonight the New York Rangers will be rolling to Joe Louis Arena to take on the Detroit Red Wings in Detroit’s second game of the pre-season.
Fresh news out of Detroit, Zetterberg’s not playing due to a flareup in his sore groin.  I’m not freaking out about this.  They’ve got 6 …

With pre-season …

Alexander Ovechkin made an appearance at the NHL powered by RBK store in New York City (47th st. and Avenue of the Americas) today to promote NHL 2K10. He made a grand entrance by driving a zamboni down the block on the Avenue of the Americas.

H/T to Babcock’s Death Stare for the tip off that Dan Cloutier is attending Red Wings’ training camp on a tryout.
As with most of us, I think the thing we think of immediately when considering Dan Cloutier is this:

Apparently Cloutier called the Red Wings and asked if he could come …
