Last time Red Wings missed playoffs, Bush Sr. and Mulroney were in office

Stoney Point - Mar. 22, 2014: The Detroit Red Wings are in tough to keep their streak alive. If the playoffs started this morning Mike Babcock’s team would have been on the outside looking in for the first time since the 1989-90 season. At the time of this writing, they are sitting in the second wild card spot. To put into perspective how long the streak has been, Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr. were the American Presidents during that season, Brian Mulroney was the Canadian Prime Minister and Sergei Makarov was the NHL Rookie of the Year.

Edmonton - Mar. 15, 2014: The Edmonton Oilers 2-1 shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings marked the 45th time in 68 outings in which the team in Orange and Blue were on the wrong side of the scoreboard. While they may currently be on their best streak of the season, posting an 8-4-3 mark in their last fifteen, Dallas Eakins crew continues to look less and less like the team many had envisioned this group ultimately becoming.

Grand Rapids - Mar. 14, 2014: The Detroit Red Wings addressed to some degree the injury-induced hole at center recently by acquiring David Legwand from Nashville. Legwand has 41 career points against the Wings in 69 games and so is a bit of a Wings killer (though his 61 in 70 against Chicago make him more of a Blackhawks killer). Here’s hoping he can convert some of that magic to the right side. He had an NTC with Nashville, so he wants to be here, but the fact his contract ends this summer makes him a rental. FULL STORY

Detroit - Jan. 5, 2014: When I was a kid my friends and I played ice hockey outside. For hours. In the cold and snow. We were soaked to the skin and freezing, but we didn’t care. It was hockey. And we loved playing it. We played outside because we didn’t know anything different. The memories of those outdoor rink days came flooding back (no pun intended) to me at Comerica Park last week during the Hockeytown Winter Festival. FULL STORY

Buffalo - Dec. 31, 2013: This is an update version of a post I originally ran prior to the Rangers vs. Flyers Winter Classic in 2012. While the unfortunate cancellation of last year’s Classic caused us to wait on any sort of new equipment for the goalies involved, it appears that each goalie who will be appearing in the 2014 Winter Classic will have some sort of special gear for the event.

Jets: Importance of win vs. Wings cannot be understated

Edmonton - Nov. 6, 2013: Off the top, yes it was a victory against a tired team who had just romped through western Canada. Secondly, don't ever apologise for a victory, especially against the Detroit Red Wings. Thirdly, the Winnipeg Jets did the impossible, they dominated that game on the score board, shot clock, and the fancy stats. It was a huge win for a team that was reeling and spinning down the drain to the bottom of the conference standings. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Nov. 3, 2013: In what was easily their worst beat down to date, the Edmonton Oilers managed to drop their fourth starlight game on home-ice and fifth overall, falling 5-0 to the Detroit Red Wings. While it's one thing to go out and lose to a better team, it's something completely different to go out and not even attempt to "compete". We saw none of that last night and it was frankly embarrassing to watch. FULL STORY
