Memory Lane
Facebook's "On This Day" feature has started to bring forward some interesting hockey tid bits that I had posted there in the past. On today's date in 2015 was the Red/White game in TC for training Camp. I remember being so excited because they weren't dumping the puck in; I…

The Most Iconic Goal in Red Wings History
This one is self explanatory, but should be hotly contested. What one goal scored in Red Wings history is the most iconic to you? Good and bad are welcome. I will never forget that disgusting move Datsyuk pulled on Turco, launching him into the "highlight reel bank." I cant speak…

What is Your Best “Hockey” Gift?
'Tis the season of giving (and to be jolly, but don't tell that to a Red Wings fan), which is oddly *after* the season of giving thanks. Figure that one out. I recently got my first hockey jersey dry cleaned for engagement pictures, and boy did it need saving. Once…

Gosh, I miss Pavel Datsyuk
I fell in love with hockey thanks to Brett Hull and Dominik Hasek. The '01-'02 season (yeah, I am relatively new), with (everything about) the '02 Western Conference Finals and Larionov's Triple OT Winner honestly being the crown jewels of my fandom (although I did cry just a bit for…
