Quick Hits: Detroit Wins Twice!

  • Hey, look, we won. [The Production Line - Nightmare on Helm Street]
  • Hey, look, we won. [Bless You Boys]
  • If you didn't notice, Cory Emmerton played in his third straight game last night. Not bad for a rookie who was expected to spend 60-ish games in the Leino Lounge. It is partly due to him being a center, but let's not discount just how well he has played and continues to play. [MLive]
  • We are now 0-16 on the powerplay and that has to change. Any suggestions? [Detroit Free Press]
  • Pavel Datsyuk was apparently impressed by his bobblehead which looked absolutely nothing like him. As one of the commenters in the game thread last night pointed out, his bobblehead looks like it just auditioned for Jersey Shore. [Detroit Free Press]
  • SlapshotGoal pointed out yesterday that the KHL named one of its All Star Teams 'Team Fedorov.' You know what that means.
  • Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you heard that Sidney Crosby was cleared for contact during practice. There is still no timetable for his return, but this is a giant step forward. [Pensburgh]
  • Interesting. When is a fight not a fight? Kerry Fraser has your answer. [TSN]
  • Mikka Kiprusoff passed former Red Wings goalie Mike Vernon as the all-time wins-leader for the Calgary Flames. [TSN]
  • How often is a fight decided by k.o. in the NHL? Not often. But that is what happened last night as Arron Asham knocked out Jay Beagle — and then proceeded to make the most classless gestures possible, something even he admitted was awful. [Pensburgh]
  • Another pilot helping authorities investigate the Lokomotive crash from last month has determined it was a pilot error that caused the crash. [Puck Daddy]
  • The Sabres are facing one of the most wonderful issues in all of hockey: having too many NHL-capable players. [Die by the Blade]
  • Greg Wyshynski has a bunch of total league re-alignments; none of which are likely to be chosen in December. It's nice to know there are options out there, though. [Puck Daddy]
  • Copper & Blue has the second part to their analysis of puck pursuit and angles, the first of which was posted in yesterday's Quick Hits. [Copper & Blue]
  • After Craig Rivet, captain of the Sabres for the past three seasons, signed with an ECHL team last week, I was wondering what other vets were playing minor league hockey. Turns out Puck Daddy was wondering the same thing. The list includes Rivet, Manny Legace, and Jonathan Cheechoo. [Puck Daddy]

Discussion of the Day: Which long-time Wings player are you most upset that we did not get rid of? Let's say five years with the team minimum.
