    This Day In Sports History (April 14th) — Detroit Red Wings

    It was on this day in 1996 that the Detroit Red Wings set an NHL record with their 62nd win of the season.  Their total eclipsed the mark set by the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens who won 60 out of their 80 games.  The Red Wings accomplished the feat in 82 games. Although the Wings had […]

    You see all kinds of people at hockey games: glass-bangers, fight-starters, the occasional smartass. But it’s pretty rare that you see a dog, especially one who seems as fixated on the game as the one in the above photo. Judging from the photo, the dog also appears to have some pretty good seats, which might be […]

    This Day In Sports History (March 12th) – Gordie Howe

    It was on this day in 1972 that Gordie Howe had his #9 jersey retired by the Detroit Red Wings.  Howe would return to playing a few years later for the Houston Aeros of the newly formed WHA, and after the WHA went bust in 1979,  “Mr. Hockey” returned for one more year in the […]

    The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The NHL’s Winter Classic is not about showcasing hockey’s speed and skill. The goal is to remind everyone—in the dead of winter—that hockey is the winter sport par excellence. And yesterday the annual New Year’s Day outdoor game did exactly that. With 105,491 fans at Michigan’s famous “Big House”—braving snow and a game time temperature […]

    The Detroit Red Wings were supposed to benefit this year from their shift from the stacked Western Conference to the considerably weaker Eastern Conference. However, so far, they haven’t exactly been dominating. They opened the season with a narrow 2-1 home win over Buffalo, then just barely scraped by Carolina 3-2 in OT before getting […]

    Last season the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup as the eighth-seed in the Western Conference.  This season, the Detroit Red Wings appear to be on the verge of making the same unlikely playoff run as the seventh-seed in the Western Conference, and much of their success thus far has to do with the […]

    There were plenty of remarkably pleasing sights to take in during Game Four of the first-round playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks last night (unless, of course, you are a Ducks fan). For starters, there were several key, highlight reel saves made by goaltender Jimmy Howard.  Here’s a look at […]

    The Detroit Red Wings have made it to the post-season in each of the past 21 season, which is easily the longest active streak in the NHL today.  However, their streak appears to be in jeopardy, as they entered last night’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture, looking in.
