The overnight report: Red Wings-Canucks short set-up

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Detroit Red Wings open up the final portion of their 2016-17 campaign with a trip through Western Canada, beginning with a game against the Vancouver Canucks this evening (10 PM EST on FSD/Sportsnet Pacific/97.1 FM), and this is going to be a strange game for a couple of reasons.

Both teams' rosters may be in flux--Vancouver will not only be dealing with the loss of Alexandre Burrows' presence in a trade with Ottawa, and they're considering trading several other players, but they've also got a handful of players who are dealing with the mumps, so even following the team's Twitter account, it's hard to tell who's "in" and who's "out" for tonight's game.

The Red Wings, as you already know, got back to work on Monday with Thomas Vanek and Brendan Smith not sure whether tonight's game might be their last in Red Wings uniforms, and they're not the only Wings players facing uncertain futures as Wednesday's trade deadline nears.

So:

The Canucks possess a 26-29-and-6 record, and coming off their own "Bye Week," they dropped a 4-1 decision to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Vancouver has lost 4 of its past 5 games as well.

As the Canucks' media was preoccupied with the details of the Burrows trade, the Vancouver Province's Ben Kuzma penned a lone article regarding the Canucks' collective health:

“Great Hockey” Was Once Played There

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Neal Boudette of the New York Times,

Since opening in 1978, Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena has brought N.H.L. fans more great hockey than any other building still standing in North America.

Six Stanley Cup finals — four won by the Red Wings — have been played there, more than any other N.H.L. arena currently in use. There have been 31 playoff seasons, including the past 25 in a row, and an almost unfathomable parade of Hall of Famers, including Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan, Sergei Fedorov, Chris Chelios, Slava Fetisov, Brett Hull, Dominik Hasek and Scotty Bowman.

And, of course, the Joe, as the arena is known, is the only place you might see a flying octopus.

But the venerable venue appears headed for an unceremonious final act. This is the Red Wings’ final season in the building, which at 38 is the second oldest in the league after Madison Square Garden.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Wild announced today that forwards Zach Parise and Jason Pominville have been diagnosed with mumps.

Members of the organization that have symptoms are being tested immediately and placed in isolation for a five-day period. Team doctors recently provided players and staff an MMR vaccination and the organization will continue to work closely with the NHL, NHLPA and the Minnesota Department of Health to help prevent further infection.

The game delivered a 1.12 household rating, up 17% vs. Red Wings-Avalanche (0.96).
