Is Slava Fetisov ready for his close-up?

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

George here: I posted this little tidbit in my Red Wings-Bruins Game 3 tailings post, but I gather that not all of you read TMR, and something tells me that more than just Red Wings fans will be interested in this little ditty.

"Rope of Silicon's" Brad Brevet reported that a documentary titled Red Army--a film chronicling the creation, dominance, persistance and downfall of the mighty Soviet Red Army hockey team and its players--will make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival.

Is main character is a certain former Red Wing, New Jersey Devil, Russian Minister of Sport and current senator from Vladivostok, one Vyacheslav "Slava" Fetisov, who captained the team through the "Miracle on Ice" years and was part of the famous "Green Unit" (a.k.a. KLM line).

From Brevet:

Sergei Fedorov spent Tuesday’s Wings game in the Joe’s press box, but he wasn’t exactly ‘visiting’

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

During last night's Red Wings game, the "GM Cam" found Sergei Fedorov speaking with Wings GM Ken Holland and executive Chris Chelios.

I wasn't too surprised as Fedorov rather wryly informed the media at the Winter Classic Alumni game that he still spends his summers in Metro Detroit, and as CSKA Moscow's season has ended--and KHL teams' training camps begin at the end of July, with exhibition games and tournaments spanning the entire month of August--this is Fedorov's "summer vacation."

The Detroit Free Press's George Sipple reports that Fedorov was a welcomed guest:

It Might Be April, But The Skies of November Are Decidedly Gloomy

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Yesterday I told you it wasn't quite time for Gordo. Today? Lightfoot is knee deep with the rest of you onboard the Hasek.

Serious trouble is what we're in.  Last night offered no hope. It was worse than Sunday only because Boston didn't play as well but dominated the Wings in an even more convincing fashion, and they did it at JLA.

Red Wings prospect news: on Anthony Mantha’s latest hat trick and Tyler Bertuzzi’s recovery

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

I figured that the Grand Rapids Griffins' setting up of their first-round series with the Abbotsford Heat would yield all of the Red Wings' prospect news today, but two stories popped up this afternoon:

1. Yahoo Sports' Neate Sager (via RedWingsFeed) reports that Anthony Mantha had quite the moment during last night's game between the Halifax Mooseheads and Mantha's Val-d'Or Foreurs. Val-d'Or ended up losing the Conference Final match-up via a 6-5 OT decision (Val-d'Or still leads the series 2-1) but Mantha scored a hat trick in the affair...

Where’s Giroux?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ed Barkowitz of the Philadelphia Daily News,

It is clear through three games that the Rangers intend to bump, harass, slash and aggravate Flyers captain Claude Giroux every chance they get. So, how are they doing?

Last night marked the 13th consecutive game Giroux did not score a goal against the Rangers, who took a 2-1 series lead with a suffocating 4-1 victory. Giroux drew a couple of penalties on the Blueshirts and chipped in his second assist of the playoffs. He even got his first shot on goal, on his 62nd shift of the series, but he again did not get one past Henrik Lundqvist.

"He's a good goalie," Giroux said. "We knew that coming in the series, and we just need to keep shooting the puck, and they're going to start going in."
