POSTGAME: BOB AIN’T HAVIN’ IT

Embed from Getty Images The Wings found themselves getting some skaters back in the lineup for this friday evening home matchup. Marchenko made his return to the point but more importantly Andreas Athanasiou was set to make his return. It seemed important to start this 5-game homestand on a positive note. A lot of this…

POSTGAME: NO GALLANT, NO PROBLEM

Embed from Getty Images Playing the Panthers hasn’t gone well for the Wings this season. They’ve been stomped 4-1 and 5-2 in the previous two meetings early this season and haven’t fared much better against other division rivals. 3-0-1 in their last four games but this was an important two points on a night that…

POSTGAME: THE DEVIL IN THE DETAILS

Embed from Getty Images Scoring has been an issue lately to say the least. Thankfully, Jimmy Howard has been making a great case for taking back the crease. Coming into this game he was third in goal against average among goalies with 10 starts or more this year. But when Howard went out with an…

POSTGAME: BATTLE OF THE BOTTOM

Embed from Getty Images The Detroit Red Wings went into their Wednesday evening game in Buffalo dead last in the Atlantic division. A win would move them into a tie with Buffalo and even one of the worst teams in the NHL, the Toronto Maple Leafs, would remain ahead of the Wings still. Needless to…

POSTGAME: PLAY WITH FIRE, GET BURNED

POSTGAME: EVEN OTT SCORES

Embed from Getty Images That win against Philly earlier this week felt pretty clutch. Steady the ship, get back on the board and try and correct last week’s mishaps. There’s no better solution for getting some momentum than beating down on a much weaker opponent. It’s a win-win really. Detroit gets a fresh two points…

POSTGAME: A SCEVIOUR WAS BORN

Embed from Getty Images The Wings six game win streak came to a screeching halt saturday against the Bruins. Both teams put on a clinic in icing and errant passes and the slop fest was eventually capped off with a 1-0 loss.

POSTGAME: STEALIN’ POINTS AGAIN

Embed from Getty Images The Wings came into the game hot, winners of their last 5 but there have been some trouble spots. A combination of getting outshoot regularly, poor possession numbers and relying too heavily on goaltenders to bail them out constantly. Well thankfully all of that luck continued against one of the leagues…

POSTGAME: Larkin’s Night

We’re sort of all waiting for this bubble to burst right? After that brutal start in Florida the entire league has seemed to be waiting for the Wings to fall off. Beat Ottawa? Big deal. The Rangers? Ah, your goalie bailed you out. But then Nashville and San Jose? They’re just getting the puck luck….
