As the series shifts to the Motor City it is now the best of five series with each club notching a victory. Chicago has now lost home ice advantage in this series and need to reclaim it quick. The Blackhawks do not have to wait long with a quick turnaround time.
Games one and two were mirror images of each other with vastly differing results for each club. In game two Detroit found their skating legs with ample time off to rest and it appears they have recovered from the Anaheim Ducks series and are looking like the Detroit Red Wings that have gone to 22 consecuti...
On the same day at the Preakness Stakes, the Blackhawks were off to the races early against the Detroit Red Wings.
Unfortunately, much like a race horse, they were spent for the afternoon after the first initial sprint, and got out-skated and out-worked the rest of the game.
Patrick Sharp got a breakaway late in the third. After getting Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard to commit to defending him, Sharp passed it across the ice via Michael Handzus to Patrick Sharp. Howard lunged across the goal, but couldn't stop the Blackhawks sniper making it 1-0, 5:55 into the first.
Detroit was committed to defense after a poor showing in game 1, and displayed better pas...
Everyone knows how badly Detroit needed two points tonight, seems like a theme this season. Don't worry; you will not be reading any complaints about the lack of performance tonight, though! The Detroit Red Wings had a beautiful shutout tonight against Phoenix, winning 4 to 0!
The end of the season is in sight, and the Detroit Red Wings found themselves needing a win on home ice to try and maintain their position in the Western Conference standings against the team that trailed them by only a point: the St. Louis Blues. It was the day of the press conference confirming what everyone already knew--though still enjoyed hearing--about the 2014 Winter Classic. It was a day where the Wings needed to be tough, and resilient, and smart.
Of those three things, we witnessed the first two. The last one cost Detroit dearly.
There was speculation that, after the elation of the 2-game sweep of the Ducks in Anaheim, Detroit may suffer a hangover of sorts as they entered Jobing.com Arena for their matchup against the Phoenix Coyotes. To an extent, the speculators may have been right, but fans were treated to a welcome sight, as Detroit managed to rally from a temporary meltdown and battle back to claim their third straight win, defeating Phoenix 3-2.
There are a number of factors that led to the 4-2 defeat the Red Wings suffered tonight at the hands of the Minnesota Wild, a team who had not won on JLA ice since 2006. Even the final score is misleading, as the match wasn't even technically as close as it might lead one to believe. Devin Setoguchi scored a pair and multiple miscues by Detroit made this an easy one for the Wild. Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller notched the two Wings goals, though Miller's came with mere seconds left on the clock in the 3rd. For all intents and purposes, this game should be treated as a 4-1 loss.
The Detroit Red Wings have won the last two games in a row, which is hopefully an indication of more winning games to come. The Wings beat the Canucks in a late night game last night. What do you think contributed to this win? What do the Wings need to do to continue the streak?
The Wings began the second leg of this season yesterday and started off nearly as poorly as they began the season. Let's face it, when you lose to a team half as good as the Blues by half the margin, the odd's the difference.
The Chicago Blackhawks will travel to the Motor City to renew their long–time rivalry with the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday morning. The Blackhawks are fresh off of an overtime victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. According the National Hockey League’s recent realignment plans, this may be one of the last times the two original six rivals will play against one another as division rivals.
The Blackhawks are number two in the NHL when it comes to the penalty kill. Detroit is in currently ranked at number 26. Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane and Red Wings Captain Henrik Zetterberg are currently i...
The Detroit Red Wings were flying high after tonight's game against the Vancouver Canucks. Vancouver is one of the top ten teams in the league. Even after the beautiful shutout Jimmy had on Saturday night, the game was still expected to be a nail biter. However, our writer, Brad’s hopefulness about Saturday’s game being a portent of things to come was proven in tonight’s high scoring game. The Detroit Red Wings painfully beat the Canucks.
