Naming the Red Wings' New Arena

After the Red Wings' loss to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, I Tweeted out the following stat:


On the John Scott Trade and the NHL All-Star Game

I really don't care if John Scott plays in the NHL All-Star Game. In all likelihood, I wasn't going to watch it anyway.

I do, however, think what happened to him today is low even by NHL standards.

Scott, who has played a grand total of 11 games for the Arizona Coyotes this season, was voted by fans as the Pacific Division's captain at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game.

On Goalie Interference

I ranted on Twitter a bit during the Red Wings' eventually-unsuccessful challenge of the Penguins' first goal of the game.


Pregame: Penguins @ Red Wings - 12/31

It's Detroit's traditional New Year's Eve home game tonight as the Red Wings host the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Jonathan Ericsson returns to the Detroit lineup, with Jakub Kindl the odd-man out on the blue line.

On Learning from Mistakes

A few days ago I praised Jimmy Howard for identifying mistakes that he made in the Vancouver game and how he gave specific examples of what he should have done differently.

Howard called out the first Canucks goal as one he shouldn't have allowed, as he's well aware of the lively boards at Joe Louis Arena and can't allow the puck to go back there only to spring back out front and give the opposition a scoring chance.


On Blame and Preparedness

I've been thinking a bit about comments from Jimmy Howard and Jeff Blashill following last night's loss to the Vancouver Canucks.


Pregame: Canadiens @ Red Wings - 12/10

Coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals, the Detroit Red Wings host the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

The Eastern Conference-leading Habs are without starting goalie Carey Price and are on a three-game losing streak.

Reviewing the 2015 Griffins Jersey Contest

We're doing a lot of jersey talk of late. The Red Wings unveiled their Stadium Series jerseys yesterday and I took a look at how they could have been better this morning.

Red Wings Stadium Series Jerseys: How it Should Have Been

The Red Wings unveiled their 2016 Stadium Series jerseys on Monday and reaction has been... Let's go with "mixed." I'm sure they'll sell a bunch of them because that's how this works but I can say I won't be adding one to my collection.


Pregame: Sharks @ Red Wings - 11/13

Pavel Datsyuk returns to the Detroit lineup tonight as the Red Wings host the San Jose Sharks. Datsyuk has missed all 15 games this season recovering from offseason ankle surgery. He'll slot in on the top line with Henrik Zetterberg and - fresh off his seven year contract extension - Justin Abdelkader.

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.
