 game recap 6 March 2010

Well there’s one way to come back after the pathetic outing against Vancouver.  I’m pretty certain this was the first game all season that was labeled as a “must win” and the Wings actually came out and played like they knew it was important.  It was huge to get the …

 game recap 10 January 2010

Great win by the Wings tonight.  One of the more complete games I’ve seen them play this season.  Which begs the question: why can’t they play at least half as well for the others?  Is it just because they’re the Sharks?  We’ll never know, I suppose…
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Pavel …

Here are my picks for Red Wings’ stars of the week for 12/28 to 1/3. Three games this past week, and really great play in all of them, even with the one loss in Columbus.
#3: Pavel Datsyuk
It seems like he’s warming up, and hopefully getting on to the beginning …

 game recap 3 January 2010

That was the best game the Wings have played this calendar year.  And now that I’ve stated the obvious, I was thrilled to see that they followed up a good game on NYE versus Colorado with another strong outing.  Maybe the ship’s turning in the new year.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: …

 Uncategorized 18 December 2009

By now I’m certain everyone’s heard the news that Zetterberg will be out a minimum of two weeks with a “slight shoulder separation” after getting decked by Mattias Ohlund Thursday.  I personally can’t imagine how any shoulder separation is slight, but at least he’s not out for extremely long term.
In …

 Uncategorized 25 November 2009

Elliott Friedman and Cassie Campbell interviewed Darren Helm today on Hockey Night in Canada Radio on Sirius.  You can listen to it here.  They talk about coming back from injury, playing with Draper and Eaves, the PK, and Pavel’s level of fitness.
He’s the complete opposite end of the spectrum from …

 stars of the week 23 November 2009

My picks for Detroit’s stars for the week of 11/16-11/22.
#3: Darren Helm
I’m torn between Helm and Stuart here.  But Helm gets the nod because though he hasn’t been racking up a ton of points, he and the rest of his line with Draper and Eaves has looked great.  They’ve been …

 game recap 30 October 2009

I’m still wrestling with how I feel about this.  Oh, irritated that we lost, for sure, but am I less annoyed because we came back from a 0-4 hole to tie?  Or am I just as pissed as I would be usually, given the train wreck that was the first …

 Uncategorized 27 October 2009

Update before tonight’s game…
Helm’s a healthy scratch.
Per Chris McCosky of the DetNews:
“Anytime you miss training camp, especially when you are a kid, it’s tough,” Babcock said. “Helm, on this team in my opinion, should be pushing for third-line center, not battling to be the fourth-line center.
“So, he’s going to get …
