Red Wings vs. Avalanche: Rank 'Em!

The Wings welcomed the Avs into town for a preview of the Stadium Series game and pretty badly outplayed the Avs. Naturally this meant going to overtime and then to a shootout. Datsyuk was money, but Mrazek couldn't hold. Avs win. Quick Thoughts Pavel Datsyuk had a wonderful game and should have gotten four goals. Cody McLeod's favorite flavor is toothpaste and orange juice. Rare kind-of-off night for Mrazek in this one. He's not used to the shot counter being this one-sided. He must've gotten bored to death back there. Now you vote for the good and the bad. Thumbs up or down,...

Game Recap: Pavel Datsyuk scores two goals, Petr Mrazek posts shutout in 3-0 win over Panthers

Everything is good again! The Red Wings came into tonight off of an impressive rout over the New York Islanders where the offense surged for six goals. The good guys continued their upward trend in a commanding 3-0 win over the Florida Panthers in front of a hometown crowd. With strong performances by Petr Mrazek, and Pavel Datsyuk, things are looking up again. Unfortunately, Justin Abdelkader had a questionable hit on Aleksander Barkov. Since Barkov did not return to the game, I wouldn't be surprised if Abdelkader ended up with a one-game suspension, but that remains to be seen. We're...

Game Recap: Blues 2 - Red Wings 1

We were all looking forward to the line of Larkin-Datsyuk-Tatar until Tomas Tatar was a late scratch with illness. The Blues also had a last-minute change to their lineup as Colton Parayko was held out after being expected to play, so the Blues were down to five defensemen before the game even started. Detroit wasn't able to take advantage of what should have been a more tired Blues defense as their scoring woes continued. First Period: The Wings came out looking good early with a lot of pressure in the Blues' zone early. Dylan Larkin decided to try and be Gustav Nyquist and carry the puck...
