Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg to skate with team Tuesday, but still no timeframe for his return

Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg will practice with the team on Tuesday for the first time since before the Olympics. Zetterberg, who skated lightly on his own a few times last week, won’t be going at close to full speed and might only be on the ice briefly. But it’s a notable step in his recovery from back surgery on Feb. 21. “I don’t know if he’ll be in a...

Why the Detroit Red Wings made the playoffs

Wednesday night in Pittsburgh the Detroit Red Wings secured their 23rd consecutive playoff berth by stealing a point against the Penguins. In the dying embers of the game, a Riley Sheahan slap shot deflected off the stick of Pens’ defenseman Paul Martin and over the top of Marc-Andre Fleury for the playoff clinching goal.

Mike Babock's whacky road to Detroit

Mike Babcock might have his players to thank for achieving the most coaching victories in Detroit Red Wings history, but Wings fans should thank the bungled project known as Crossroads of America.

Regner: Yzerman might never return to Red Wings

Steve Yzerman still might run the Detroit Red Wings someday, but it won't be anytime soon. Which isn't all that surprising to me. When news broke Monday that the former Red Wings captain had agreed to a four-year contract extension to remain as the Tampa Bay Lightning's VP and GM through the 2018-19 season, it reminded me of a conversation I had with Yzerman more than...
