Tomas Holmstrom’s Subtle Brilliance

January 22nd, 2020 The Detroit Red Wings were a team in flux at the start of the 1990s. At times labeled the "Dead Things," they had not won a Stanley Cup since 1954-55 and had won just five playoff rounds over the previous 24 seasons. The team did make the postseason in 1990-91, but they bowed out to the St. Louis...

Pittsburgh Penguins

DETROIT — Sidney Crosby scored a power-play goal 1:33 into overtime to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 Friday night. It was Crosby's third goal in three games since returning from a 28-game absence because of a core muscle injury. Bryan Rust also scored for the Penguins in the third period after Filip Zadina put Detroit ahead in the second. All three goals came with the man advantage. Crosby scored by redirecting the puck past goalie Jimmy Howard from in front of the net off a pass from Evgeni Malkin. Pittsburgh was on the power play after Detroit's Luke Glendening took Jared McCann down away from the play and was called for interference. Crosby scored an overtime goal for the seventh straight season, tying him with Mats Sundin and Brendan Morrison for the longest streak since regular season OT was re-instituted in 1983-84, according to Stats Perform.

New York Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Brock Nelson scored twice and the New York Islanders routed the Detroit Red Wings 8-2 Tuesday night. New York scored three times in the first eight minutes, a rousing response after a lopsided road loss to the crosstown Rangers a night earlier. The league-worst Red Wings were out of it early, and Thomas Greiss made 34 saves to back the Islanders. Jordan Eberle, Josh Bailey and Nelson chased Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard with their three quick goals early. Calvin Pickard relieved and stopped 14 of 19 shots. Filip Hronek scored for Detroit 11:45 into the first, but Anders Lee put the Islanders ahead 4-1 later in the period. Eberle assisted on Lee’s goal for his 500th career point. Nelson scored his 18th of the season early in the second period on a breakaway, and Noah Dobson followed with his first career goal 41 seconds later. The 20-year-old Dobson was a first-round pick in 2018 and playing is 18th game. Noah Dobson, New York Islanders (Jess...

Red Wings Goaltending

Tuesday night saw more National Hockey League history made in Montreal with a shutout. The league also announced an All-Star replacement after one of the game’s top goaltenders has decided to not go to St. Louis. Also, a veteran is hoping to translate his recent success in the American Hockey League to the NHL. Price Climbs Up the Ranks in Montreal The Calgary Flames walked into the Bell Centre in the midst of a five-game winning streak, but that came to an end thanks to Montreal Canadiens' goaltender Carey Price. Price made 31 saves in a 2-0 win over the Flames. It was his second shutout of the season and 46th of his NHL career. He is now tied with Hall of Famer Ken Dryden for the third-most shutouts in the long and storied history of the Canadiens. "I think everyone knows it; Carey has a special place in the history of this organization," defenseman Ben Chiarot said of his teammate. "He's not just one of the best goalies, he's one of the best players that's...

Trade Deadline

With the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline around the corner, Steve Yzerman and the Detroit Red Wings have an opportunity to acquire more draft picks and prospects to aid the rebuild. There might be a problem this year, though. At first glance, the Red Wings don’t have many valuable trade chips.  Steve Yzerman taking over the reins from Ken Holland. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio) In previous years, Ken Holland had a couple more quality players on expiring contracts to work with. With things being as bad as they are, Yzerman’s hands may be tied – will there be enough demand to move a player or two? Let’s take a look at a few potential trade chips and the likelihood they’ll be dealt. Keep in mind, there has to be demand and a return on par with a player’s value for a trade to occur. No one—not even Jonathan Ericsson—will be shipped out for a bag of pucks – the NHL just doesn’t work like that.  Andreas Athanasiou’s Fluctuating Value Let’s start with...
