Just a couple of weeks ago the Philadelphia Flyers looked like a team that was going nowhere fast. On Wednesday, they topped the Detroit Red Wings by a 4-3 margin to win for the seventh time in their past eight games and moved to within two points of a Wild Card spot in the Eastern […]
NEW YORK (AP) — Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader has been fined $5,000 by the NHL for spearing New York Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield in Tuesday night's game. The league's department of player safety handed down the fine Wednesday. The
An 800-foot-tall (244-meter) centerpiece is coming to Detroit's resurgent downtown as the city continues to build momentum about three years after exiting the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The 58-story building dominating the local skyline will rise on the site of the iconic J.L. Hudson department store, whose 1983 closing epitomized Detroit's economic downfall. […]
The Detroit Red Wings raised eyebrows when they protected Jimmy Howard in the expansion draft instead of Petr Mrazek, and things haven’t really turned around since then. The Athletic’s Craig Custance reports (sub required) that teams are calling the Red Wings – though not “banging down the door” – regarding Mrazek, and Custance reasonably asserts […]
The 2017-18 edition of the Montreal Canadiens has been underwhelming at best. Other times, they look like a squad that should be picking in the top five of next summer’s NHL Entry Draft. Let’s forget the fact that five of those wins have come against the Sabres (three times) and Red Wings (twice).

Justin Abdelkader and Gustav Nyquist scored in a dominant first period for Detroit, and the Red Wings snapped a seven-game slide with a 5-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

• The Detroit Red Wings have dropped seven games in a row and some fans are calling for Jeff Blashill’s head. • The Golden Knights recently re-signed Brayden McNabb to a contract extension. Which Golden Knight will be next to get paid?
It was only two weeks ago the Montreal Canadiens looked to be in a downward spiral. All that changed when star goalie Carey Price returned. Paul Byron got his first career hat trick, Alex Galchenyuk had a career-best four assists and the Canadiens beat the slumping Detroit Red Wings 10-1 Saturday night for their fifth […]
Players of the Night: Paul Byron, Montreal Canadiens: Byron notched his first career NHL hat trick as the Canadiens annihilated the Detroit Red Wings 10-1. He now has nine goals on the season, well on pace to eclipse his career-high of 22 he set last
Naturally, the Montreal Canadiens are on a tear with No. 1 netminder Carey Price back, and healthy. It should come as no surprise that the Montreal Canadiens are a much, dare we say, completely different team when their all-world goaltender is in between the pipes and at the top of his game instead of catching […]
