Mrazek, who turns 24 on Sunday, is 10-2-1 with a 1.31 goals-against average, .951...

Petr Mrazek needs more Vezina consideration

Braden Holtby grabs all the headlines because he's won 34 games, has lost just five games in regulation and he can realistically catch Martin Brodeur's single-season record of 48 wins as he leads the Washington Capitals to an absurd record. Corey Crawford is having a career-year as he powers his Chicago Blackhawks to the NHL's second-best record. Roberto Luongo is teaming up with...

Larkin makes mention of the ‘Dungeon’ in Red Wings’ 3-1 win over Ottawa

The video of Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin shooting pucks in the ‘Dungeon’ was internet gold and probably something the young rookie won’t live down for quite a while. What makes it better though is Larkin making reference to the video in a highlight of Zetterberg zipping past Dion Phaneuf for the Red Wings’ second goal in a 3-1 win over Ottawa Wednesday night. . @DetroitRedWings...

Nyquist 1st out of gate of Top 10 Kentucky Derby contenders

He's an Eclipse Award-winning 2-year-old with five victories in five career races. What's not to like about Nyquist? Nothing so far, and that's why the bay son of Uncle Mo opens at No. 1 on The Associated Press Top 10 list of Kentucky Derby contenders. And he's not even trained by Bob Baffert. Winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile, Nyquist is gearing up for his 3-year-old debut...

VIDEO: Tomas Tatar shows off sick stickhandling skills in “GoPro: NHL After Dark”

YouTube In episode one of GoPro: NHL After Dark 2016, Red Wings young gun Tomas Tatar showed off some silly stickhandling moves. You don’t have to have played hockey to admire this work. He credited his stupid good hands to his days playing street hockey growing up. And it’s quite obvious he landed his girlfriend, Lucia Slaninkova, because he can handle the rubber.

Jagr really doesn’t want to play in the All-Star Game

Jaromir Jagr doesn’t want to play in the All-Star Game. That’s not exactly a new sentiment as he had previously joked during the fan voting that the new 3-on-3 format would kill him. Now it sounds like he’s a bit more serious, and it’s raising some questions on what’s going to happen with roughly a week to go before the game. #FlaPanthers Jaromir Jagr really doesn't...

Pierre McGuire does not know his bald guys on the Detroit Red Wings bench

Let’s face it. Either you like Pierre McGuire or you don’t. There’s no middle ground with Pierre. When he makes a misstep during NHL on NBC/NBCSN games, his detractors snicker while his supporters feel sympathetic. Well, Pierre has some more material for hockey fans to ponder. During Wednesday’s St. Louis-Detroit game, McGuire did his regular in-game interview with the coaches...

Video: Ryan White’s huge headshot on Tomas Jurco

It has been a while since the Broad Street Bully’s took the ice, but maybe some habits do in fact die hard. Ryan White, the man who delivered the hit, isn’t your typical goon as he has seven points on the season and not an overwhelming amount of penalty minutes. He did receive five minutes and the game for this hit, which based on live play and replay was completely right call...

The Blues are at the center of a ton of different trade rumors and they actually made a deal on Friday. The Blues orchestrated a trade with the Red Wings, acquiring Richard Nedomlel in exchange for future considerations.
