Hockey Debuts Tonight At The Little Caesars Arena

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,

"When I look out into this rink, it feels like it is going to be a wall of people,” Blashill said, after one of two split-squad practices Friday.

“I just think the energy of being in this place alone already helps our team. It’s really energized our guys.
“I think it’ll give us a home-ice advantage, right away.”

Given the Wings’ tradition and the fan’s loyalty, passed from generation to generation, a good number of folks who have held season tickets since Olympia will file through the entrances Saturday.

“I’ve had tickets since 1972, so I’ve gone through Olympia and I’ve gone through Joe Louis Arena,” said John Firu of Dearborn Heights, as he anticipated attending the game Saturday. “There’s an old saying, first impressions are lasting.

“Well, when we went on a tour about two weeks ago, and I was extremely impressed.

“When I expressed it, one of the words I said was, ‘Wow!’ ”


Tonight's game with puck drop at 7:00pm ET is on FoxSports Detroit Plus and the NHL Network.

Niklas Kronwall On His Health

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

"I feel pretty good," Kronwall said. "It's definitely getting there, just got to get the legs and lungs going."...

"The knee's feeling pretty good, a lot better than it was this time of year last year," Kronwall said. "Changed a few things over the summer.

"Last year I wasn't able to skate throughout August at all. This year from Aug. 6 or 7 or so, we've been skating at least four times a week. So been on the ice up until obviously last week."...

"Once the season starts, everything is up and running, I will approach it like any other season," Kronwall said. "Obviously, last season, not a lot of things went the way I wanted to for myself nor the team. So, I think there's a lot of guys in here that feel like they just want to get back out there and go after it and redeem themselves."

Skating With Riley Sheahan

from Craig Custance of The Athletic,

Watching, there was no way of knowing Zack shouldn’t have been on the ice in the first place, at least not holding a hockey stick. A few days earlier, he’d made an ill-fated leap on the monkey bars according to his mom, one rung too far before he came crashing to the ground. His wrist snapped. He was in a cast.

But he wasn’t going to miss this. Skating with Sheahan, who in this session taught him how to make plays with one good hand, was now a yearly ritual he looked forward to more than anything else.

It's a tradition Sheahan and Zack enjoyed even before tragedy struck Zack’s young life, changing it in a way he has no way of comprehending, even as the months have passed from the moment that changed everything.

Videos- Recap Of Detroit’s 6-1 Loss To The Chicago Blackhawks

from Marlowe Alter of the Detroit Free Press,

Detroit Red Wings first-round pick Michael Rasmussen scored his first NHL goal Thursday night in Chicago. That was about the only bright spot, as the Wings were smothered by the Blackhawks, 6-1, in their third exhibition game of the preseason.

Rasmussen scored off his own rebound in the second period to cut the deficit to 4-1.

Petr Mrazek was in net for the Wings (0-2-1), and stopped just 34 of 40 shots.


Below, watch the Rasmussen goal and complete game highlights...

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.
