The Malik Report
by George Malik on 05/04/12 at 08:27 AM ET
Very briefly: Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard stopped 21 of 23 shots and Justin Abdeklader played pretty darn well in terms of physicality from what I watched of Team USA’s 7-2 win over France in the team’s World Championship opener (via the NBC Sports Network). The game was, however, much closer than the score indicates.
I’m not going to post quick recaps of the games in real time as they occur at all times of the morning/day in the U.S., but I’ll take note of the results and try to get as much Swedish to you as possible…And while the IIHF has “geo-blocked” the U.S. from its live streams, I might suggest that you head to their YouTube channel and check on their “1st venue (Helsinki)” and “2nd venue (Stockholm)” streams and cross your fingers that your IP is not blocked. You never know, you might get lucky…
And while I’m in the promotion business, make sure to take a gander at the overnight report as I did my best to roughly translate interviews with Niklas Kronwall and Pavel Datsyuk, there’s much more Swedish from a very kind TMR reader and articles about Darren Helm and Kyle Quincey popped up this morning.

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.
