Athanasiou returns, is Holland interested again?

February 3, 2020 - 1:44 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter You can bet Ken Holland would trade rights to Puljujarvi for Athanasiou but Wings might want a draft pick too. Maybe OK, as long as it's not a second-rounder? Fourth or higher? Fine— Jim Matheson (@NHLbyMatty) February 1, 2020 As of last week, there were reports...

Instead of talking about another loss - Yzerman is tailing a prospect

February 4, 2020 - 3:48 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura As I watched the game last night, I found myself pondering, “Is this team getting worse?!” Philadelphia was dominating in possession (save for some nice shifts including some brilliant attempts by Bertuzzi) and Bernier was keeping the score artific...

Detroit ends 9 game winless streak in Buffalo, Bernier finally gets “W”

February 6, 2020 - 10:46 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Buffalo fans, I get it now. I’ve not kept up on the Sabres enough to know how many injuries to important pieces have seen another season decimated. There were ebbs and flows in this game that made it clear why each team is struggling. There is a...

Jimmy plays his best game of the season in loss to Columbus

February 7, 2020 - 10:51 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Unfortunately, no other Detroit Red Wing player did much to aid their goaltender. At one point during the second period, shots were 22 - 6 Blue Jackets. The final tally was 44 -16 with an empty net goal sent to Boone Jenner with love from Jeff Blashill....

Worst beats first, Detroit wins 3-1 over Boston, Bernier steals the show

February 9, 2020 - 4:30 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura It’s not probable. The top team in the league comes into Detroit with 80 points to Detroit’s 28. The Bruins outshoot Detroit 40 to 20 (after Detroit was outshot 44 to 16 by CBJ) and still Detroit comes out with a 3-1 win (1 empty net). Further impro...

February 11, 2020 - 5:38 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Mantha’s return to the lineup is a long overdue beacon of hope for players and fans alike. Even in the midst of a losing season, it’s fun to watch the big man play. With Athanasiou finding his game again, tonight could be a good contest to watch. Ho...

3rd Period explosion puts Wings past Habs - what happened?

February 18, 2020 - 10:50 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura I’ve noted before that with the final 20 games we will see some guys pick up their play. To be fair, Athanasiou has been knocking on the door. His backhand shot at 5:04 of the third period was beautiful. It was almost a mirror image of Larkin’s favo...

February 21, 2020 - 11:28 PM ET

Follow me on Twitter Follow @TheJeremyLaura Detroit, mercifully, has 19 games left. They currently possess 34 points. If they swept the next 19 they would end with 72 points, and the lowest Eastern Seed has 73. So, three weeks into February Detroit is out of the race altogether. No one would...
