Johan “Mule” Franzen took one in the face early on, forcing his exit. Winnipeg took an early 2-0 lead. Thirty seconds later, in the second period, Tomas Tatar answered with an unassisted goal of his own. Then, “The Mule” returned, galvanizing his fellow Red Wings with a goal. Furthermore, Petr Mrazek kept us in it desp [...]
To the tune of 28 saves. Our young guns scored five goals for him: Tatar, Nyquist, Helm, Jurco, & Sheahan all found the back of the net.
Looks like the rest did our Red Wings well.
Both teams played in Detroit (Auburn Hills for the Pistons) at the same time Friday night. The New Jersey Devils skated with the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena. They snarfed the first goal of the game in the first period. At the Palace, the Pistons held the Milwaukee Bucks. We traded them point guards a season ago, adding some spice to the matc [...]
“He thought the Rangers’ Rick Nash was in the crease just before teammate Derick Brassard scored the winning goal in New York. Babcock wasn’t saying the goal should have been waved off, but he also saw the Red Wings victimized by similar calls a couple of times this season. “Two things I don’t understand,” [...]
The first period was truly a marvel. The Red Wings scored four goals and never looked back.

Gustav Nyquist slapped a shot, had it bounce back to him in the air, then knocked it into the net for the first goal of the game. My brother, father, and I watched the game together on my dad’s birthday. “We could not be stopped.” The Red Wings overcame three first period penalties. However, two more later in the second afte [...]
Trailing 3-1 with just three minutes to play, Detroit was forced to pull goaltender Jimmy Howard. Danny DeKeyser promptly found a streaking Henrik Zetterberg, who fired his third goal of the season into the back of the net. 3-2. The Red Wings pulled Howard again. With under one minute left, Pavel Datsyuk took the puck near the net, then passe [...]
It was the same old song as last night – Toronto stayed on their dirty horse. They committed several first period penalties and prodded our players from the get go, setting the tone for the game. It was to no avail, just like in their arena. The Red Wings couldn’t score, but neither could the Maple Leafs. Jimmy Howard sat out with [...]
Toronto came out dirty. They split open “The Mule’s” face just beside his eye almost immediately after the opening puck dropped. Johan (Mule) Franzen didn’t waste any time retaliating on the scoreboard. With the Red Wings earning a power play on a different high stick, the Maple Leafs mojo started to wane. Shortly afte [...]
The cheap, no good, dirty rotten Boston Bruins returned to Joe Louis Arena for our season opener tonight. Henrik Zetterberg also celebrated his 34th birthday. The Red Wings featured all their sensational Griffins from last season – Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Jurco, among others. We all know the Bruins can’t skate or play r [...]
