Post Thumbnail of 2002 vs 2010: The Forwards
 summer speculation 12 August 2010

As I’m sure most of you were also doing last night, I watched the NHL Network air the ABC/ESPN broadcast of the 2002 Stanley Cup Game 5 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.  Gary Thorne and Bill Clement kept reiterating the star power, and the to-be Hall of Fame players.  That …

 stars of the week 28 April 2010

I wanted to post up my three stars of the series for the Red Wings against the Coyotes, and kind of pick up again on this little weekly feature that I had done earlier in the season…
#3: Jimmy Howard
You gotta hand it to the kid. His first ever playoff series, …

 game recap 17 April 2010

My former roommate, and recent convert to Red Wings nation (and hockey in general) back in New York IM’d me shortly after the game ended and made a comment that caused me to laugh a little:
ok, don’t get me wrong, i’m glad we won
but i wish that the entire game …

 game recap 28 February 2010

First things first, huge congratulations to Team USA for playing strong, tough, and with heart, and for never giving up. A great performance by the Americans to win the Silver medal. We’re proud of you all.
Secondly, congrats to Team Canada, specifically Steve Yzerman and Mike Babcock. (Can someone …

My picks for the stars of the week 12/21-12/27
#3: Valtteri Filppula
He didn’t put any points up in his return against Columbus, but Flip was clearly a steadying force out on the ice. As I mentioned in my game recap, it was so relieving to have one of the top players …

 game recap 27 December 2009

Very glad that I was wrong when I said this was exactly the type of game the Wings like to lose.
Goals were as follows:
Detroit: Todd Bertuzzi (pp; Datsyuk, Lidstrom); Todd Bertuzzi (Rafalski, Lidstrom)
Columbus: Antoine Vermette (Voracek)
Pluses
+ I know that Bertuzzi knew Petrella was in the building when he scored that …

 game recap 24 December 2009

I feel like I might as well copy and paste half my game recap from the Sunday game.  Anyway, following Matt on this one, and not dwelling on the loss.  Yeah, it blows to be shutout twice in a row, but I’m trying to be positive and am looking forward …

Post Thumbnail of Finally, Some Good News
 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 …

 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 …
