    Red Wings Fan Does Some Serious Playoff Redecorating (Pics)

    At Michael Tyler’s home in Livonia, Michigan, NHL playoff time is a lot like Christmas time.  With the hometown Detroit Red Wings making an appearance in each of the past 20 post-seasons, April has always been a time to celebrate for this die-hard fan.  And much like Christians celebrate Christmas by decorating their houses with […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/10/11 — Valtteri Filppula

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/10/11 — Valtteri Filppula

    Through the first 50 minutes of Game 6 last night between the San Jose Sharks and the Detroit Red Wings, Antti Niemi was busy making a strong case for our “Stat Line of the Night.”  The Sharks goaltender was easily the busier of the two netminders, as he continued to frustrate the Red Wings’ shooters, […]

    Joe Thornton Does His Best Soccer Player Impression (Video)

    The NHL playoffs often provide stories about heroic performances from players who demonstrate an impressive ability to sacrifice their bodies and play through injuries.  However, at times the story during this year’s playoffs has been the continuous efforts of players to embellish even the slightest infraction in order to earn a power-play. Players from just […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/8/11 — Pavel Datsyuk

    There were questions surrounding the health and availability of Pavel Datsyuk entering Game 5, as he was listed as questionable with a wrist injury.  However, with the Wings in a must-win situation, Datsyuk not only took part in last night’s game, but he would prove to be the difference in the Wings’ 4-3 comeback victory. […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/4/11 — Devin Setoguchi

    After winning the first two games at home, the San Jose Sharks traveled to Detroit with the opportunity put a stranglehold on the series with a Game 3 victory.  Unlike the first two games in San Jose, the Sharks were not necessarily the better team on the ice in this game, however, they did have […]

    Picture Of The Day: Playoff Hockey

    Nothing says playoff hockey quite like the face of Johan Franzen, which looks like it has just been shredded with a cheese grater.  The Red Wings’ forward was drilled face first into the boards by Shane Doan early in the first period of Game 2 today against the Phoenix Coyotes.  He had to be helped […]

    Little Tykes Takes An Extra Lap At ‘The Joe’ (Video)

    Every little kid dreams about getting to step out onto the ice of an NHL rink at some point in their life, and while only a few will ever get to do so as a professional hockey player, many teams these days have been giving youngsters from their area the opportunity to take a lap […]

  • Niklas Kronwall Shovels Patrick Eaves Off The Ice (Video)

    Niklas Kronwall Shovels Patrick Eaves Off The Ice (Video)

    During the weekend I posted a picture with the title “I get by with a little help from my fans.” Perhaps we should title this video of the Detroit Red Wings’ Niklas Kronwall pushing an injured Patrick Eaves off the ice, “I get by with a little help from my teammates.” During Saturday night’s game […]

    Sergei Kostitsyn Scores With A One-Handed Roof-Job (Video)

    The Nashville Predators’ Sergei Kostitsyn brought a whole new meaning to the term “short-handed goal” Saturday night during a game against the Detroit Red Wings. Leading 1-0 late in the second period, Kostitsyn’s team was short-handed and so was he, as he was sent in on a breakaway but could only manage to get one […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    If ever there was a good game for Johan Franzen to break out into one of his patented scoring sprees, last night’s was it.  His Detroit Red Wings were on the road visiting the slumping Ottawa Senators, who have had trouble scoring in recent games, but they erupted for five goals against the Wings’ Jimmy […]

    Face Full Of Glass (GIF)

    Wait for it.  Wait for it.  Wait for it…and Boom!  There it is!  Your close-up shot of Blues defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. I am not quite sure how he ended up sliding face first into the glass after diving at the feet of the Wings’ Valtteri Filppula, but this clip could earn Colaiacovo a contract with […]

  • Jaroslav Halak’s Goaltending FAIL! (Video)

    Jaroslav Halak’s Goaltending FAIL! (Video)

    Like Detroit Red Wings’ television color commentator Mickey Redmond said immediately after this crazy goal, “goaltenders make this move 100 times a night in the NHL.”  However, they never seem to do it in quite the same manner as Blues’ goaltender Jaroslav Halak did last night during a game against the Wings. With his Blues […]

  • Is This A Hockey Fan’s Dream Wedding Entrance? (Video)

    Is This A Hockey Fan’s Dream Wedding Entrance? (Video)

    Nothing says “hockey” quite like two archrivals dropping their gloves at center ice, exchanging a few punches, and pulling each others’ jerseys over their heads.  So with that in mind, should we consider this to be the ultimate wedding entrance for any die-hard hockey fan? I’d just like to take a moment to give a […]

    Henrik Zetterberg’s Wedding Photo Is A Little Odd, To Say The Least

    What you will find below is not a black-and-white version of Where’s Waldo from the 1920s.  Instead, it is a picture taken from the pre-wedding party of Detroit Red Wings’ forward Henrik Zetterberg.  The Swedish superstar tied the knot with gorgeous Swedish television star Emma Andersson in what many described as one of the country’s […]
