It's Anthony Mantha's World And We Are Just Living In It

After the landslide of injuries that occurred in November, the Detroit Red Wings finally decided to call-up heralded forward Anthony Mantha.

Quick Hits: Henrik Zetterberg Appreciation and Anthony Duclair on the Trade Block?

Savvy scoring leader Zetterberg still setting pace for Wings | The Detroit News In his 14th season, at age 36, Henrik Zetterberg’s game has changed noticeably.

Despite age taking its toll, Zetterberg...

Note to Red Wings – ‘Shoot More’

The Detroit Red Wings have been hampered by injuries in recent weeks, but despite the number of injuries, they’ve been able to put together a five-game point streak. And while the point streak is a good confidence builder, they will not continue to accumulate points at that rate based on their level of play.

Today’s Detroit Red Wings can’t be fairly compared to the dynasty they had almost a decade ago, and Henrik Zetterberg is merely a shadow of the player he was during that time period. It’s been obvious over the last years, especially at the beginning of this season, that the Swedish Red Wings captain isn’t aging with the same class as some other players have been doing. Meanwhile...

WATCH: Thomas Vanek goes 'around the world' in shootout

It didn’t look like much, but Thomas Vanek pulled off one of the more unique shootout moves seen in the NHL this season. As Vanek skated in on Sabres netminder Robin Lehner, he casually controlled the puck before going “around the world” with his stick, which seemed to completely fool Lehner. Sometimes it’s the more subtle moves that prove to be the most effective.
