The overnight report: Red Wings-Sabres wrap-up—hold ‘em up in Buffalo

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings' 3-2 OT loss to the Buffalo Sabres was...let's say it was officiated according to "old time hockey" rules, and Danny DeKeyser was stripped of the puck by Ryan O'Reilly twice, once in overtime, a hand-on-body grab and then a stick-to-the-hands play. On some nights, those plays are called textbook obstruction-and-or-interference plays, and on some nights, they're kosher.

To the Sabres' credit, O'Reilly and his teammates played whistle to whistle, and as a result, plays helped the Sabres secure two points to Detroit's one (and Detroit got to stew in its juices a bit as the team was "fogged in" in Buffalo).

Buffalo was delighted by the development and damn proud of O'Reilly's grit, as they told Buffalo Hockey Beat's Bill Hoppe:

Red Wings-Sabres quick take: point gained, frustrating point lost

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Detroit Red Wings faced off against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night, with the Wings looking to extend their 3-game winning streak against a Sabres team whose goaltender, Anders Nilsson, has one of the best home-ice records in the league.

Nilsson out-dueled Petr Mrazek despite 70 Wings shot attempts and 34 shots on net as the Red Wings were undone by a struggling power play, lost puck battles and a terrible non-call in OT as Buffalo won 3-2 in overtime.

Danny DeKeyser, who got walked around by Ryan O'Reilly on the 2-2 goal, was hooked around the hands by the same player, and the puck made its way to Kyle Okposo, who slid the puck past Mrazek at 4:34 of OT...

But the Wings had an OT power play of their own that wasn't demonstrative, the Wings just played kind of sloppy hockey for many stretches on the night, and Darren Helm's return wasn't enough to give the Wings the grit and jam they needed to grind out a heavily-needed win over the Sabres.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

And quite possibly an inauguration baby for The Grandpa Chief too.

That's why I am here.  So let's celebrate with a win tonight.

Make it four in a row, two points anyway the Wings can get it.

Bill will keep me updated with any news, in the meantime I say Stevie or Stevi, depending on the sex of the child.

Go Wings, comment away.

P.K. Subban Returns Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Nashville Predators,

The Nashville Predators activated defenseman P.K. Subban from Injured Reserve on Friday and expect him to play tonight in Edmonton.

The 27-year-old blueliner has missed the previous 16 games with an upper-body injury. Subban had 17 points (7g-10a) in the Predators' opening 29 games before exiting with what he described as "a new injury."

Adding Subban back into the mix will be welcome addition for the Preds, who are also missing another franchise defenseman in Roman Josi (Injured Reserve; upper-body).
