Quick take, Red Wings-Devils: Wings salvage an ugly game with an elegantly ugly win

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings have had a tendency to fear the number three all year long, but they weren't shy in surrendering three first-period goals to the New Jersey Devils on Friday night, so the Wings appeared to be en route to delivering a Black Friday Turkey after emerging from the 1st period down 3-1, and the Wings surrendered the 4-1 goal all of 28 seconds into the 2nd...

But Fox Sports Detroit's cameras panned to a stoic Mike Babcock on the bench, saying, "Come on, let's go" to his next line, not Jimmy Howard, and the Wings and Petr Mrazek battled back from their 3-goal deficit to tie the New Jersey Devils 4-4 and ultimately emerge with an ugly-but-pretty 5-4 shootout win.

Devil in the Details

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from Pa.-made in Detroit

Not much to add here. The Devil is the last twenty minutes of any game the Wings have played. All. Season. Long.

The details are to play the entire game. That happens to include the final twenty minutes.

No falling back. No more playing to protect the lead. No more playing for the loser point.

Keep it simple.

Simplicity=Skate. To. Throat.

Detroit Emulating Chicago

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Corey Masisak of NHL.com lists Detroit 10th in this week's Power Rankings...

GIVE THANKS: Mike Babcock is doing a masterful job of putting his skilled young players in situations to succeed. He's leaning on the fourth line to eat up a lot of the defensive-zone faceoffs (they're not the only team trying to emulate what has been a staple in Chicago) and the kids are turning offensive-zone faceoffs into great possession numbers.

WISH LIST: Does anyone know if the Red Wings have been looking for another defenseman? Yeah, they're still looking, though Xavier Ouellet has not looked out of place in limited duty. If this team adds a high-level defenseman, Detroit could win the East.

MUST READ: The defensive shell sounds like a great idea, but it really isn't, writes garik16 for Hockey-Graphs. The Red Wings are a good example of a team that doesn't sit back much. Detroit is allowing 46.89 shot attempts per 60 minutes at even strength, and when the Red Wings are leading by two-plus goals that figure only rises to 50.0, the second-lowest in the League in that situation.
