Detroit Wins An Exciting Game In OT vs Avalanche

If you are a Wings fan, or really a hockey fan, you would know how extremely important it was for Detroit to take home two points on Friday's game against Colorado. After close to a sixty-five minute exciting battle, Detroit finally landed the two needed points in overtime. Let's break this one down so you can see just how back and forth the effort was.

Wings Waddle out of West Coast in Boring Loss to Sharks

Last night's game in San Jose was a hard one to watch, and not just because the Red Wings didn't come away with the win. Yes, Detroit lost 2-0 to the Sharks, but the game overall--on both sides of the ice--was chore to watch, and certainly not worth staying up till 1AM ET to behold.

Wings Find Themselves Late, Rally past Coyotes

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.

Wings Savor Valuable 5-1 Win in Anaheim

With the second half of the season well underway, the Red Wings know there are games they need to win even if the odds are against them. Last night was one of those games, as Detroit skated into Honda Centre and reminded the Anaheim Ducks how to play a good road game. Justin Abdelkader exploded offensively, notching his first NHL career hat trick, and Pavel Datsyuk got goal #250 and assist #500 of his career in what was a stellar outing for the Wings. Both players will more than likely say, however, that the best part of last night was earning 2 points against a hot team that many expected more tenacity from.

Detroit Wins Second in a Row Vs Vancouver

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?

Selections from a Mid-Season Analysis

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.

Despite Showing Fight, Detroit Falls Prey to Nashville

The Wings may not have been victorious, but if they were one thing they were certainly determined.

Detroit fell into a 2-0 deficit early in the game, but managed to claw their way to a 3-3 tie before the end of regulation. What little luck The Red Wings had found ran dry shortly thereafter though, as Predator captain Shea Weber capitalized on a bad defensive decision and a fortunate bounce, scoring the OT winner to finish off Detroit 4-3.

Detroit Fans Going Wild After Watching Loss to Minnesota

It is safe to say that the Wings are playing terrible. There is no way to put it besides tonight's game was unbelievably frustrating to watch. It is hard to imagine Minnesota was the team the Wings killed just three weeks ago, winning 5 to 3 with a hat trick from Henrik Zetterberg. Remember that? Tonight was definitely a different story. The Detroit Red Wings lost their third game in a row to the Minnesota Wild.

Wings Feel Blue After St Louis Wins in OT

St Louis spirits are high after they squash a five game losing streak on Wednesday night, but the Detroit Red Wings cannot say the same. The Wings fell 4 to 3 against the Blues in overtime.

Game Preview: Desperate Kings Head to Detroit

 

It might be too early to throw the word "desperate" around but with the way things are going it feels appropriate. The Kings have gone from bad to inconsistant to consinstantly bad. A five game road trip has started 1-2 and both losses have been disheartening. The little momentum the Kings picked up against the lowly Blue Jackets was erased Thursday night suffering a 3-0 shutout loss in Nashville.The Kings (3-4-2; 8 points) travel to Joe Lewis Arena to play the Red Wings (6-4-1; 13 points) for a 9:3...
