Previewing The Week Ahead In Bruins Tickets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Cohen,

With the Boston Bruins currently on the road, they will return home on Tuesday when they will welcome the San Jose Sharks at the TD Garden in a East vs West matchup.  The Bruins are coming off a very successful regular season campaign in 2013-14 as they earned the President’s Trophy by finishing the regular season with league’s best record with 54 wins overall.  However, the Bruins after dispatching the Red Wings in five games in the first round of the playoffs, were upset by the Montreal Canadiens in a hard fought seven game series. Boston Bruins tickets on the secondary market will be below the season average for both of the week’s upcoming games.

The overnight report: On Nyquist, the Red Wings’ PK, a Sheahan-Jurco moment, Bertuzzi and Hicketts

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated substantially at 4:48 AM: I've been to cities much larger than Detroit was during its heyday, but when I've visited Toronto, Washington D.C., Chicago or anywhere else that makes even Metro Detroit's 4.5+ million population look like a postage stamp, I've always had the same feeling toward the end of my trip: "I want to go home, where it's not this nuts." I will take the desolate buildings and Metropolitan Area spread out over an area larger than Rhode Island any day.

My feelings are similar in a professional sense every time the Red Wings travel to Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia or of course Chicago; even with Tuesday's game in Montreal in the offing, I think I'll breathe a sigh of relief after the Wings wrap up their home-and-home series with the Centre of the Hockey Universe [a.k.a. Toronto and its Maple Leafs] and the Centre of the Hockey Media Universe this evening (7 PM EDT, FSD/CBC/NHL Network with the requisite Center Ice/GCL blackout/97.1 FM).

Red Wings-Maple Leafs wrap-up and Wings-Leafs set-up: Zetterberg dominant, Leafs media still Babsing

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings flew back to Metro Detroit having rebounded from Wednesday's loss to Boston in fine fashion, defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 in what may have been the Wings' most complete performance of their 4-game-old 2014-15 campaign.

Tonight, the teams tangle again at what's likely to be a split Joe Louis Arena (7 PM on FSD/CBC/NHL Network U.S. with the usual Center Ice blackouts/97.1 FM) and  a front office that's pretty pissed off at Bob McCown, with Jonas Gustavsson playing goal for the Wings and Johan Franzen "possible" after suffering leg spasms subsequent to tumbling as he scored his second goal of the game.

Franzen had this to say about his issue to the Canadian Press's Stephen Whyno:

Red Wings prospect news: Griffins defeat Charlotte; Bertuzzi, Turgeon score 2, Hicketts w/ 2 assists

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings' prospects had a pretty solid Friday night, and the headliners were the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins, who defeated the Charlotte Checkers 2-1 despite a 41-save performance from former Griffin Drew McIntyre.

The Griffins' website posted a recap of the game:

Teemu Pulkkinen scored his second goal of the season 46 seconds into the third period and Petr Mrazek made 18 saves as the Grand Rapids Griffins (2-1-0-0) defeated the Charlotte Checkers (1-3-0-0) Friday at Time Warner Cable Arena.

In the Checkers’ home opener, it was the Griffins who controlled the flow of the game as 10 penalties were called against Charlotte, which led to nine power play opportunities for Grand Rapids.

Quick take: Red Wings-Maple Leafs, round 1: Zetterberg, Nyquist, Franzen power Wings over Leafs

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Mostly good, very, very little bad, including denials from Ken Holland and Jimmy Devellano regarding the Wings' supposed sale possibilities.

The Detroit Red Wings defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night, taking game 1 of the back-to-back series by a 4-1 margin, and from Kyle Quincey playing well to Jimmy Howard looking strong when the Wings were out-shot in the 2nd to some superb play by...Jakub Kindl...Almost everything went well:

Regrettably, after scoring his second goal, Johan Franzen left the game with what was deemed a "lower-body injury," and we got a post-game sigh of relief via RedWingsFeed:

The teams go back at 'er on Saturday at 7 PM (on FSD/CBC/NHL Network U.S./97.1 FM), and aside from Andrej Nestrasil and the Riley and the Slovaks line not finding their hands yet (though Tomas Tatar has the "Joe Hicketts my center of gravity is several feet below the ice" thing going), the Wings played a superb overall game, rebounding from Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Boston and witnessing a command performance by a Henrik Zetterberg who seems to be "finding his wind."

GAME FOUR-A NEW HOPE

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from Pa.-made in Detroit

Tonight we face the storied Maple Leafs. Shanny is now a big shot with the team and things are supposed to be turning around in Toronto. I remember when Shanahan came to The Wings. That signing most defiantly helped bring The Cup back home, where it belonged. That was long ago. Right now they have Carlyle and as far as I know, we still retain the services of one Mike Babcock.

The task at hand is just to pile up the points early on. The last loss was very hard on some of you, but there is no whining in hockey. The Wings are currently 1-1-1 some see that as the end of the world. Some think we should make a play for a 24 year old, -20 D-man/boy from Buffalo that would cost us plenty in players and cash.

Whatever. It's too early to panic. Uncle Mike has a new crop of assistants and the ship will be righted. We play tonight, in the supposed center of the hockey universe. So drink up and strap in, cause its gonna be a bumpy ride.

The Rolling Islanders

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Cory Wright at the Islanders website,

John Tavares and the New York Islanders woke up Friday morning as the only 4-0 team in the NHL and as the first Islanders team to start a season with four straight wins since 2001-02.

The Islanders humble captain insisted that it’s only been a week - that the team needs a bigger sample size to gauge themselves - but admitted he sees the potential of something special if the Islanders can build on their good start.

“I think we see what the potential could possibly be if we do the right things, understand the way we need to play and everyone understands their role individually,” Tavares said.

There is a lot to like about the Islanders fast start. They toppled one of the league’s best teams, the San Jose Sharks; they are 3-0-0 against the Metropolitan Division, 2-0-0 at home and are getting scoring up and down the revamped lineup.

Report- Are The Detroit Red Wings Up For Sale?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Take this for what it is worth.  Bob McCown, a well connected sports talk personality on Sportsnet's Prime Time Sports just mentioned he has heard the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Tigers and Little Caesars are up for sale, stating the Ilitch's have made this known.

This all came about during a discussion with a caller discussing the Babcock to Toronto rumors.

update 5:36pm,

The Babcock to Toronto was brought up again and the panel which inclueded John Shannon and Elliotte Friedman lean towards Babcock leaving the Wings for the Leafs and maybe assuming the GM position too.

The question remains will the Wings pay Babcock what he wants but he won't get the power he wants with Holland as the GM.

McCown brings up again that the Ilitch Family has put their enterprise up for sale and making retirement plans. Can't say how long it will take.

update 7:35pm, Turning this over to George of The Malik Report where you can listen to McCown.
