The Unders Have It :: Quincey suspended 1 game

On Sunday afternoon, the Wings needed a shootout to defeat the Florida Panthers 2-1. They played most of the third and overtime with only five defensemen after Kyle Quincey was ejected for an elbow to the head of Tomas Kopecky. He received a five-minute major and an additional ten minute misconduct. The National Hockey League […]

Why not – Darren Helm to miss 4-6 weeks

Add another body to the growing injured list. Darren Helm, who sustained an apparent leg injury in a collision with San Jose’s Dominic Moore and limped off the ice, has had an MRI performed on his left knee. A “second degree MCL sprain” was detected and he’s been shut down for 4-6 weeks. With only […]

Eaves to IR, Conner called up

On Saturday, Red Wings winger Patrick Eaves took an errant shot just above the right ear. It was a scary scene as Eaves went down in a heap, appeared to lose consciousness for just a second, before writhing in pain on the ice. He was able to get himself onto a gurney — for the […]

For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow

I always forget that Darren Helm is six months younger than I am. Welcome to age 24, love, you’re off to a great start. I have to say, when he got smacked earlier in the game, I was frozen with horror. I think I made a few whimpering noises and tweeted some incomprehensible. We certainly […]


The Red Wings will be without center Mike Modano, who is “out indefinitely” after suffering a lacerated tendon in the right wrist during Friday night’s game against the Blue Jackets. Extra special thanks to Fox Sports Blohio, who didn’t even bother to show a replay and offered only a fleeting “a Red Wing is heading […]


Alternate title (h/t @mserven): “HIDE YO KIDS, HIDE YO VETS” Very troubling news just came streaming down the RWFeed… well, not so much troubling as “aw that’s nice” with a sprinkle of “oh shit, they let him near children?” As part of a state-wide tour, a handful of Red Wings are visiting schools and hospitals, […]

Rest in Peace, Probie

On Monday, Hockeytown lost a legend. No, his number won’t join Stevie and Gordie in the rafters. But anyone who was a Wings fan in mid-80’s to mid-90’s will remember — fondly — what Bob Probert brought to the game. He was the ultimate teammate, a hell of a brawler, and an oddly efficient goal-scorer. […]

Despite signing in June, Todd finds a way…

Tuzz, seen here molesting an eventual-teammate Gather ’round, boys and girls, it’s story time. It started on a Tuesday. This past Tuesday, as a matter of fact. We’re just under eight weeks away from exchanging vows, and everything was on the up and up. We have quite a bit left to do, but the big, […]


I’m going to do my best to take the high road, and avoid mentioning that — for the first time since President Kennedy went back and to the left — the Chicago Blackhawks have temporarily stepped out of the land of perpetual mediocrity to win the Stanley Cup by beating the seven seed from the […]
