DetroitHockey.Net Partial Hiatus

I've done this before from time to time, but I'm formally announcing that I'll be taking a bit of a hiatus from DetroitHockey.Net.

I used to do this once a season or so, around this time of year, for about a week. It's a long season, I get burned out.

This time I have no end date in mind.

Pregame: Canadiens @ Red Wings - 2/16

Coming off a 5-4 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday the Red Wings host the Montreal Canadiens tonight. The game is Detroit's second and final home game of the month of February.

Jimmy Howard will get the start for Detroit, his second since returning from injury.

Pregame: Wild @ Red Wings - 1/20

It's the Red Wings' final game before the All-Star break and they're hosting the Minnesota Wild.

Barring injuries, it'll be a true break for the Red Wings, as with Jimmy Howard hurt, they currently have no players slated to head to Columbus for the All-Star activities.


Late Goal Lifts Red Wings Past Blues in Overtime

Detroit forward Pavel Datsyuk scored with less than three seconds remaining in overtime on Thursday, lifting the Red Wings to a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Datsyuk's shot from the right faceoff circle deflected off defenseman Barrett Jackman, then snuck under the blocker of goalie Brian Elliott with just 2.2 seconds left in the overtime period.

Pregame: Devils @ Red Wings - 12/31

The Detroit Red Wings close out 2014 with their traditional New Year's Eve game at Joe Louis Arena, this time hosting the New Jersey Devils.

Xavier Ouellet will return to the Detroit lineup as Jakub Kindl was injured in practice on Sunday and is now on injured reserve.

Pregame: Avalanche @ Red Wings - 12/21

With their losing streak now at five games, the Red Wings host the Colorado Avalanche tonight in their penultimate game before the Christmas break.

The Red Wings will look a little different, as starting goalie Jimmy Howard is out with a groin injury.

Red Wings Logjam Won't Get Better On Its Own

Xavier Ouellet is back in Grand Rapids and Mattias Backman has returned to Sweden. For the time being, the Red Wings' logjam on the blue line is resolved.

Pregame: Islanders @ Red Wings - 12/19

The Red Wings look to snap their four-game losing streak tonight as they host the New York Islanders.

Johan Franzen returns from illness for Detroit and will replace Daniel Cleary in the lineup., Xavier Ouellet remains on the blue line, meaning Jakub Kindl and Brian Lashoff are healthy scratches.


Pregame: Blue Jackets @ Red Wings - 12/16

Looking to stop a three-game skid, the Detroit Red Wings host the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight. Columbus is on a tear, having won their last six games.

Detroit will see several lineup changes, as Justin Abdelkader and Danny DeKeyser return from injury but Johan Franzen sits due to illness.

Thoughts on Xavier Ouellet's Roster Spot

Danny DeKeyser returns to the Red Wings' lineup on Tuesday, meaning that the Detroit blueline is back to 100% healthy. Despite that, call-up Xavier Ouellet remains on the roster, as forward Stephen Weiss has been placed on injured reserve to keep a spot available.

Misconduct is DH.N publisher Clark Rasmussen's personal blog. Originally named because I thought I'd complain a lot about refs in this space, I'm surprised at how little it happens. Now it gives me a place to ramble about hockey that's not DH.N's news section.
