Three Red Wings Inducted Into Hall of Fame

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Tonight was the Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony for 2009. It was a very special night for Red Wings fans as three Red Wings were inducted. Brett Hull, Luc Robataille and Steve Yzerman were all part of the 2001/2002 Stanley Cup winning Red Wings team and were all part of this year’s induction class. Brian Leetch was also inducted as well as Lou Lamoriello in the builder category.

Here Comes Round 1

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

The playoffs start tonight for the Red Wings, less than two hours from now. I can’t wait to see how the Wings look when they’re actually playing a game that matters. You really can’t gauge how good they are by the way they ended the season, but tonight we’ll know.

Draper will be out for the game because of a mysterious injury. There were rumors during the week that Cleary would also be out after taking a hit in practice. The latest is that he WILL be able to play. Hossa should be back as well.

Hopefully, Mason will show some nerves early on in the game and we’ll get an early lead. Once he gets passed the jitters he will likely be a rock.

You can find the game on Versus starting 7:00 PM.

Good luck to the Red Wings tonight!
