Wings/Leafs Recap

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

A pretty good game to watch on a Sunday night.

Wings went up 1-0 in the 2nd, then the Leafs scored 2 quick goals.

Zetterberg scored near the midway point of the 3rd and it looked like the game was headed to OT.

But Auston Matthews scored with 30 seconds left in regulation.

Game over.  Toronto 3, Detroit 2.

Goals and Detroit team stats below...

Recent Play May Make Petr Mrazek More Tradable

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The goaltending trade market around the NHL is beginning to open up, and suddenly a few goalies could be in demand.

Would Petr Mrazek be one of those that could intrigue a team like the Philadelphia Flyers or Calgary Flames or New York Islanders?

If Mrazek continues to play as he did Saturday in Nashville, stopping 31 shots in a 3-1 win over Nashville, you’d have to believe so....

Both the Flyers and Flames, specifically, have been hit hard with injuries in the goaltending department.

Philadelphia lost Michal Neuvirth (lower body) Sunday, after having already lost Brian Elliott (lower body) to surgery earlier in the week.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall was adamant he wouldn’t be shopping for a goaltender after Elliott was hurt, but likely will have to change his mind now that Neuvirth could be out for an extended period.

Calgary’s Mike Smith (lower body) is another goalie who could be out for a period of time, and with the Flames desperately in need of points.

FYI, Mike Smith skated before practice yesterday.

As Things Should Be

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Uncle Mike returns to the place he should have never left tonight.  And as he does, I'd like to take a quick glance at a comment from Deep Digging Fan Girl, Helen St. James. From her mailbag, a question as to whether Steve Yzerman will ever come home to Detroit...

Steve Yzerman is under contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning through next season. Why would he leave the Lightning?

NHL Statement On The Incident In Chicago Last Night

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (Feb. 18, 2018) – "Last night in Chicago, individuals directed racial taunts and abuse at Washington Capitals player Devante Smith-Pelly," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. "The National Hockey League condemns this unacceptable and reprehensible behavior. The League fully supports the actions taken by the United Center and the Blackhawks to eject the offenders and would expect the same response to any similarly unacceptable behavior at any of our arenas.

"While this incident was isolated in nature, no player, coach, official or fan should ever have to endure such abuse at one of our games. The League will take steps to have our clubs remind all stakeholders that they are entitled to enjoy a positive environment - free from unacceptable, inappropriate, disruptive, inconsiderate or unruly behaviors or actions and may not engage in conduct deemed detrimental to that experience."

Morning Line- Bob Murray

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I’m not a rental fan. I’ve never been a rental fan. The last couple of things we’ve done, I’ve ended up signing the guys because we’ve liked them. But are there things out there? Apparently. I know what’s out there. I know the price tags teams are asking for right now. And I’m not interested.”

-Bob Murray, GM of the Anaheim Ducks.  Eric Stephens of the OC Register has more.

The Dynasty Is Dead In Chicago

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

Little thought is given to what's occurred the past 10 years on West Madison, no pause for reflection, hardly a memory of what the previous two decades resembled, hardly a memory of what it feels like to escape the abyss, breathe clean air and celebrate a generation of excellence.

Not that long ago -- relatively speaking, and especially for any who lived through the misery -- this was the worst franchise in all of sports, but under Rocky Wirtz it has become one of the very best in every imaginable way, using any imaginable metric.

It has been a heck of a run and worth a few moments to celebrate before taking a match to all of it.

All good teams must come to an end. It is the eternal way of things.
