The Malik Report

For five Detroit Red Wings, Tuesday was a night they won’t forget.
Defencemen Danny DeKeyser, Brendan Smith and Jakub Kindl, as well as forwards Joakim Andersson and Damien Brunner, made their Stanley Cup debuts at the Honda Center in Game 1 of the Wings’ Western Conference quarter-final series against the Anaheim Ducks.
Backup goaltender Jonas Gustavsson and defenceman Brian Lashoff, a healthy scratch for Game 1, wait in the wings, so to speak, to make their Stanley Cup debuts.
It’s the largest quotient of newbies sent out by the Wings since they opened the 1990-91 playoffs at St. Louis, which, incidentally, was the first season of Detroit’s current 22-season run of consecutive playoff appearances.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
