The Malik Report

Bandwidth can be a cruel mistress, but I promise that the multimedia post subsequent to the Red Wings' 2-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 of their second-round series--which is this thing right here--will include more links and fewer auto-play videos. Learning on the fly here, folks (and both We All Bleed Red on YouTube and I wonder what the hell Duncan Keith said to Al Sobotka before Al twirled the pre-game octopus).
Anyway, here are the game's highlights from the Wings' website, as narrated by the CBC's Bob Cole:
ESPN posted a 3:19 clip in which Barry Melrose and Steve Levy discussed the game, NBC posted a 1:24 highlight clip, the CBC posted a 2:50 highlight clip, Sportsnet posted a 2:21 highlight clip,TSN posted a 27-highlight clip and Comcast Sportsnet Chicago posted a 3:11 highlight clip:
In the analysis department, the NHL Tonight broke down the game;
Sportsnet's Hockeycentral crew praised Justin Abdelkader's grit in their post-game analysis;
Yes, NBC Sports and Eddie Olczyk did call Jonathan Toews out for his three trips to the penalty box, but Olczyk was amused by Bryan Bickell's attempt to eviscerate Justin Abdelkader at the bottom of a scrum. As such, we get to watch this instead:
As did the Chicago Tribune's Chris Kuc and David Haugh;
And the Free Press's Evil Drew Sharp and Helene St. James weighed in on the game as well.
And Here's Howard:
ESPN Chicago posted a clip of Toews speaking to the media;
The Chicago Sun-Times posted a clip of Crawford talking to the media;
The Red Wings' website posted clips of Zetterberg...
And coach Babcock's presser:
WXYZ's David Solano filed a post-game report:
Fox Sports Detroit posted clips of Kindl speaking to John Keating about his game...
And Howard talking about getting Howe-bombed:

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.
