Red Wings Dylan Larkin transformed Devils goalie Cory Schneider into a fish out of water Monday night. Larkin kicked up his leg, faked a shot on Schneider’s stick side, and went back around. The goal was Larkin’s 14th of the season. This rookie’s pretty good.
The Red Wings fan accused of trying to light a giant Lightning flag on fire during last night’s Game 7 might have gotten off—or at least might not still be in jail right now—if she hadn’t thrown her lighter at police, according to a source familiar with the details of the confrontation.
A 35-year-old woman from outside Detroit was arrested last night after she allegedly tried to set fire to an oversized Tampa Bay Lightning flag that was being passed through the Amalie Arena crowd before puck drop of Game 7.
And so the Lightning move on, after winning a Game 7 in which they were a distant second-best team on the ice. But so it goes in the playoffs, when an entire series can come down to a goaltender like Ben Bishop playing out of his mind and a single, skillful, painfully lucky scoring play. “That’s how Game 7s are…
Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall has been suspended for one game—tomorrow’s Game 7 against the Lightning—for his hit on Nikita Kucherov. The Department of Player Safety’s video explanation is above.
Niklas Kronwall’s flattening of Nikita Kucherov late in the second period of Tampa’s Game 6 win was the platonic ideal of a “Kronwalling,” the flying elbow to a head-down player for which the physical Red Wings defenseman has become so well-known. Kronwall has never been suspended before, but that appears likely to…
The Tampa Bay Lightning beat up on Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek tonight, scoring four goals against him (plus an empty-netter) in a 5-2 victory to force Game 7. Despite the poor result, Mrazek had the save of the game (of the playoffs? of the season?) with this crazy lunging robbery of Brian Boyle. The goal was so…
This feels like a last go-round for this era of the Red Wings, but one of the last decade’s more familiar faces is missing: Johan Franzen, out since January with his latest concussion, almost surely out for the season no matter how deep Detroit goes, and very questionable to ever resume his hockey career.
When Marathon Petroleum received a $175 million tax break from the city of Detroit in 2007, they promised jobs for Detroiters. And, as of last January, the $2.2 billion expansion of Marathon's refinery on the city's southwest side had, in fact, created new jobs for tax-paying residents —all of 15 of them.
Some sweet deke skills by my man there, who executes a perfect toe drag to blow by that other guy. Who says you shouldn't drink and dangle?
Gustav Nyquist's overtime winner against the Senators last night can't fit into a GIF. You need to watch the full video to appreciate it. The Red Wing got the puck at 1:17, and scored with 48 seconds left.
Gordie Howe is back resting at his daughter's home after suffering a stroke, and the Detroit Red Wings wanted to do something nice to help lift his spirits.
Before In the middle of the first period of Friday night's game at Joe Louis Arena against the Los Angeles Kings, they got the crowd to stand up and cheer…
Red Wings legend Gordie Howe suffered a stroke early Sunday morning in Texas, according to The Detroit News. Howe, 86, is now out of the hospital and recuperating in Lubbock at his daughter's house. His son told the paper that, while Howe is having significant physical issues, his mind is doing better:
Yesterday, the Detroit Red Wings unveiled plans for their brand new publicly subsidized $450 million arena development. The arena, which promises to include $200 million additional investments in mixed-used development, will break ground in September. The Ilitch family, which owns the Red Wings and Tigers, is calling…
This is about hockey. Not that other thing.
Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith has been a target of abuse through the first two games of the series. He decided to take out his frustrations on the nearest Bruin. The nearest Bruin just happened to be the tallest NHL player ever.
Just 30 seconds before this play, Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard watched Milan Lucic 's redirection of Jarome Iginla's shot/pass on goal harmlessly trickle through the crease. It was the Bruins best chance of the night and on the pendulum swing back, they were down 1-0. These things always seem to happen that way: a…
By earning a point last night in a shootout loss to Pittsburgh, the Detroit Red Wings clinched their 23rd straight postseason berth. They salvaged that point on this goal from center Riley Sheahan. Riley Sheahan wasn't yet born the last time the Red Wings missed the playoffs.
