Holland: No updates on any injuries. We’ll have to wait till everyone gets here tomorrow | Red Wings Front
The big news on all the injuries is that there is no news. We'll find out more today. Let's hope we get one or two bodies back for tomorrow.

Ken Kal's Reading Party Video - NHL VideoCenter - Detroit Red Wings
Pretty cool video of Ken Kal and the Wings hosting some 5th graders at the Joe for a reading party. You'll notice very familiar face and part of the WIIM family at the beginning of the video.

Detroit Red Wings Announce 5-Year Extension With Grand Rapids Griffins Of AHL - Motown Lowdown - SB Nation Detroit
The Griffins will be part of the greatest organ-i-zation in sports for at least five more years. I'm sure the two clubs relationship will last much, much longer.

Speaking of the Griffins...they almost made a huge comeback last night in Texas. Tough loss for the team as they try to get into the playoffs.

Detroit Red Wings or St. Louis Blues: Which team should the Preds face in the playoffs? - On the Forecheck
Reading the comments, sounds like Predator fans think they have an easier chance beating Detroit than St Louis in the first round of the playoffs. In related thinking, I have an easier chance scoring with Kaley Cuoco than my own wife tonight - Graham.

Comparing The New York Rangers To The Mighty Ducks - Blueshirt Banter
Listen very carefully. I will never not link a post I find that uses this movie as a guideline for something.

Mario Lemieux Statue Ceremony - PensBurgh
Some jerk got immortalized in a bronze statue in Pittsburgh. Wouldn't it be cool to be the random nobody immortalized being beaten by Mario Lemieux forever?

The NHL's Most Interesting Name: 2000s Part II - Arctic Ice Hockey
Brian Bonin might not be the most interesting name, but is easily the funniest.

Jeff Carter on why things didn’t work out with Columbus Blue Jackets | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
Sadly, Carter only has the guts to pout about a trade he hated rather than the guts to tell the truth about hating every minute of being in Columbus.

Report: No suspension for Tootoo after shoving linesman Champoux | ProHockeyTalk
No word yet on any supplemental discipline for Champoux headbutting Tootoo in the face.
