Quick Recap- DRW/CBJ

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

I was getting a bit nervous after 40 minutes of play, thinking the only video I had was the Nick Lidstrom interview.

In the 3rd period, Tyler Bertuzzi scored, follow by the first NHL goal from Lucas Raymond.  Columbus scored on the power play to make it 2-1.

Namestnikov and Erne added an empty net goals to give the Wings a 4-1 win.

Lidstrom interview and Detroit goals are below and team stats too.

Next game is Thursday with the Wings hosting Cal-Gary.

Enjoy The Moment

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from PA now in SC-made in Detroit

If there's one thing to be said about the Wings this season, it's that they're fun to watch again. Not boring, not slow and old, and not the inevitable feeling of dread that we've all come to know in the last few seasons. These games are actually entertaining, and exciting. 

Larkin is back in the lineup tonight, T-Bert is on fire, and, the youngsters are really putting on a good showing so far.

Yes, there is plenty of room for improvement, and that will come in time, but for right now let's just enjoy the moment, and have a good time. I do realize it's only game three in a long season, but, bring it on!

Patrick Roy’s Name Surfaces As A Replacement For Marc Bergevin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

The timing was curious — if not more than a little coincidental.

As Jesperi Kotkaniemi prepared for his much-anticipated return to Montreal after signing a contentious $6.1-million offer sheet with Carolina in the summer, a report surfaced out of a Quebec-based newspaper suggesting that GM Marc Bergevin’s tenure with the Canadiens is all but over.

Not only that, but according to La Voix de l’Est, owner Geoff Molson has tabbed Patrick Roy as a possible replacement, having reportedly met with the Hall of Fame goalie several times already.

C’est what?

In case anyone forgot, we’re just a week into the season. And while the last-place Canadiens haven’t looked like the team that beat Toronto, Winnipeg and Vegas en route to the Stanley Cup final, you’d think that the team would be given at least until the end of the month before reporters and fans starting calling for Bergevin’s head.

32 Hockey Thoughts Today

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet,

- Jack Eichel’s agents aren’t commenting on this one, but I think I see their strategy if this continues without medical resolution or trade: Eichel’s been seeing doctor after doctor in search of support for the artificial disc replacement. The more support they get, the more they will argue it is an acceptable practice and that the new CBA agreement is not meant to prevent what could be seen as a reasonable medical choice. I’m not a lawyer, so I can’t predict if that will work, but it’s definitely the basis for some kind of legal challenge/grievance should we get to that point.

- Nikita Kucherov is going to see a specialist to determine the extent of his injury. So we may not get clarity on his situation for a few days. But head coach Jon Cooper said it isn’t as long-term as last year, while Mikhail Sergachev told The Athletic’s Joe Smith Kucherov is “going to get some rest, get ready for the Olympics.”

- According to a couple of sources, Rangers’ coach Gerard Gallant personally called Vitali Kravtsov to ask the forward to consider returning. Kravtsov is in Russia, but several teams say they’ve been told he wants to play in the NHL, not stay overseas. He went home to find a comfortable spot to skate and be ready. Getting him to come back to New York will take some serious convincing, as it’s not his preference. He’d like a fresh start. New York is asking a high price for the 2018 first-rounder, but there’s legitimate interest. It’s a poker game.

- Edmonton is 2-0. GM Ken Holland told Oilers Now propagandist Bob Stauffer “my history in Detroit was when the team was good and we have a chance, I’ll spend.” (Stauffer did specify not a rental, but someone with term or team control.) Probably not smart to make any judgments after two games, though. “If you’re in the top eight and you think you’ve a real chance,” Holland added, “the time is now, we’re trying to take another step.”

- For a second time, Mark Howe is retired. The Hall-of-Famer ended his playing career in 1995 and, after last season, retired as a scout. “I remember asking dad when I was still playing, ‘How do you know when it’s time?’” Howe said Monday. “He answered, ‘You’ll know.’ He was right. It hit me then and it hit me again.” Howe said he wants to spend more time with his partner, Sharon, recognizing that is more important to him now than work. “I’ve been compensated very fairly. I strongly believe in Steve Yzerman and his plan. Steve is the hardest-working guy I’ve seen. He demands the same of others and he should. But I wasn’t just tired, I was burned out. It is time.” Howe went out of his way to praise the Red Wings and the Ilitch family. “They were great to me, and us. To share my father with the rest of the world when he passed made a difficult time very nice.”...

Moritz Seider Still Learning

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Seider’s start

Rookie defenseman Moritz Seider has three assists in his first two games and is averaging 21:38 in ice time, second on the team to Filip Hronek (24:16).

“He’s earned some trust coming in here with his game at the different levels he’s played at,” Blashill said. “I just thought he did a real good job (Saturday). He’s a gamer. He’s a guy wo wants those types of minutes. He’s big, he can defend, and he can play offense.

“He’s going to have his growing pains; he’s got learning to do. But in the meantime, we’re going to keep putting him out there, let him learn and keep going through the trials and tribulations that young players go through.”

Electric atmosphere

Blashill noted that the atmosphere at LCA the first two games has been as charged as it has been since the building opened four years ago.

“I think the atmosphere has been great. Both games were highly emotional, which is a positive,” Blashill said. “We want to play with lots of compete, lots of emotion. The crowds have been awesome. It’s a loud building. It’s been a while since we had that (due to COVID restrictions last season). The first game in this building (in 2017), we didn’t have enough people in the seats. There were lots of people here, but they were either in the club level eating or checking out how beautiful the arena is. Now everybody is in the seats, and it just seems really, really loud.”
