The Malik Report

Per MLive’s Ansar Khan, the Red Wings will tweak their training camp schedule to pay farewell to a friend on Saturday:
Saturday’s camp schedule has changed. The team will not scrimmage. Each of the three groups will practice in the morning and then the main team will fly back to Detroit for the funeral of former assistant coach Brad McCrimmon.
McCrimmon, former defenseman Ruslan Salei and ex-goaltending prospect Stefan Liv were among 44 who died in the Sept. 7 plane crash in Russia involving KHL club Lokomotiv Yaroslavl.
I know that the Red Wings will rally around the McCrimmon family, and I hope Wings fans will do the same, because when something like this happens to people that partisan fans treat like extended members of the family…We give the McCrimmons their space, privacy, and at the same time, some TLC.
