Fabbri and Erne off the COVID list

February 2, 2021 - 7:16 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Detroit needs some positive energy in the room. Thursday, February 4th, will be three weeks since the season started on January 14th for Detroit. Detroit will have played its 11th game. 10 games in Detroit is 2-6-2 and the crew looks down at times on t...

Wings vs Lightning - Detroit badly needs a boost from somewhere

February 3, 2021 - 5:06 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period summary - as the Pharaoh said when the locusts were gone, “thank God that’s over. Can it get any worse?” In the third period, Tampa really backed off on their play. Detroit started getting some looks, but nothing could get through Ky...

Detroit vs Tampa 2 - electric boogaloo - a better loss, still a loss

February 5, 2021 - 2:00 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period summary - except for an empty net goal, this was a 1 goal game. Detroit had 28 shots on net, and only one went in. Greiss stopped 28 of 30, still outstanding. There’s more talent on one side of the ice, and immensely so. That said, there...

Wings vs Panthers 3 - It was all Jedi - Wings win in Florida 4-1

February 7, 2021 - 2:07 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third Period and wrap - Congrats to Greiss! He more than earned a win here. Givani Smith with the Gordie Howe hat trick also managed to get Ekblad off the ice for 5 of the last 7 minutes. That Smith was penalized on the Weegar hit but Gudas wasn’t for...

Wings vs. Panthers 4 - Department of Players Safety has no excuse on Gudas

February 9, 2021 - 11:25 AM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Bobrovski decided to buckle down and make some really nice stops tonight. An opening graphic showed that, since last season, Bob (the 10 million dollar man) has let in 4 or more 21 times. Detroit was unable to break through after a nice tally by Zadina....

Wings Vs Preds part 1 - another clash of the shite-ans

February 11, 2021 - 2:24 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period summary - an uneventful period for the most part. Detroit’s anemic power play was overcome by the league’s worst penalty kill. Luke Glendening’s loss is felt, in a huge way. His faceoff prowess would have made a difference tonight in...

Wings vs Preds 2 - Electric Bugaloo - surprise, surprise free curly fries

February 13, 2021 - 1:04 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period and game wrap up- Detroit scored 4, more than double its average GPG. Each goal was meaningful. Glendening returns and scores, also assists on Erne’s first since 2019. Fabbri keeps showing what a nice pickup he is. Mantha, who’s been wo...

Dekeyser on Waivers

February 14, 2021 - 12:58 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Alex Galchenyuk (CAR), Paul Byron (MTL), Par Lindholm, Danny Dekeyser and Gabriel Carlsson (CBJ) are on waivers.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) February 14, 2021 A couple of thoughts - if Dekeyser is destined for the taxi squad, someone will hav...

Wings vs Hawks - Detroit outworks Chicago, lose in OT

February 15, 2021 - 12:34 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period/OT summary - Detroit played as good a third period as I can remember. Outshooting Chicago 9 to 3, and a goal from Djoos that was absolutely beautiful. Multiple chances to go ahead simply didn’t materialize into a much needed goal. The eff...

Wings vs Hawks IV - Bernier does everything but score

February 16, 2021 - 9:35 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Third period - Greiss was joined by Jonathan Bernier in the “I gave you every chance and you couldn’t do it” club. Detroit managed 29 shots on goal, but to no avail. Chicago even briefly pulled their own goalie in an act of charity, the Wings were...

Wings vs Panthers V - dumpster fire

February 19, 2021 - 12:40 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Detroit’s game summary - via GIPHY Detroit laid down and gave up tonight. The score aside, Gudas continues to take runs at Larkin, and no response. Almost no significant hitting. No one who has any real hope to bring respect to the room is doin...

Detroit’s masseuse Sergei Tchekmarev passed away - let’s honor his memory

February 19, 2021 - 10:24 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Jeff Blashill emotional as he announces longtime trainer Sergei Tchekmarev has passed away.— Helene St. James (@HeleneStJames) February 20, 2021 The people that make the sport of hockey “work” are often unheralded. From the hockey parent...

Bernier steals a much needed win

February 20, 2021 - 9:58 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Sergei Tchekmarev passed away on Friday night. If you’re able, please head to that blog using the link and leave a comment in honor of a truly fantastic human being. I’d like to send them along to Detroit’s media team. The Red Wings were very...

Frans Nielsen on Waivers

February 21, 2021 - 1:01 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Frans Nielsen (Detroit) on waivers today— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 21, 2021 Detroit has waived Frans Nielsen, likely to place him on the practice squad. It’s interesting to see Yzerman willing to free up a roster spot, not wha...

Wings vs Preds V - opposite directions

February 23, 2021 - 2:04 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Frans Nielsen cleared waivers. During this morning’s skate he was practicing with the third line, so he may well be available. For anyone who’s confused, Yzerman doesn’t seem to have an appetite to keep a taxi squad full of players that need some...

Would Yzerman hire Claude Julien?

February 24, 2021 - 11:06 AM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Wings vs Preds part V was a tough one to watch. Bernier stood on his head, but Detroit offered up no run support. It solidified the fact that the recent win over Florida was a bit of a fluke. As in that tilt, Nashville outworked the Red Wings. This time...

Wings vs Preds VI - flip the script?

February 25, 2021 - 1:10 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura There’s a general consensus amongst readership that Claude Julien isn’t the best fit. I, personally, would like him as a special teams coach. At this point, even doing a family feud style “our survey says....” may be an upgrade to the power pla...

Gagner hat trick, Bernier’s brilliance lead to win - free curly fries!

February 25, 2021 - 10:20 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura if you’re in Michigan, head to Arby’s tomorrow and get free curly fries since Detroit scored more than 3 goals! For the pregame post, I mentioned that Detroit seems to do better in the second game of these 2 game stints. From being shutout to sco...

Wings vs Hawks V - Svech me if you can?

February 27, 2021 - 6:24 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Gagner’s hat trick combined with another standout performance by Bernier helped Detroit split the last 2 game series with Nashville. Glendening and Erne both scored on second effort shots, the kind of traffic this team needs to be creating. Glenny fro...

Wings beat Hawks 5-3, Svech and release

February 27, 2021 - 10:36 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Evgeny.Svechnikov.👏👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/rPhBuokcHy— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) February 28, 2021 Svechnikov made the roster tonight, and made a difference. While he didn’t convert on his breakaway from the neutral zone t...

To the depths! Detroit’s past 2 wins show support from bottom 6

February 28, 2021 - 1:27 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura For the first time this season Detroit has beaten Chicago. Bernier’s strong performance in net was complemented by new names on the score sheet for the second straight game. Svechnikov, Helm, Nielsen all netted their first of the season. The power pla...

Hawks dismantle Wings 7-2 - at least Svechnikov scored again...

February 28, 2021 - 9:45 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura In my pregame write up I looked at the contribution from Detroit’s depth players. The victory against Chicago had a lot to do with stellar goaltending, depth scoring, and the power play breaking through. Well, Detroit got two of those things tonight.....
