Ouch!

Red Wings can't hold onto two-goal lead, falter in third period in 6-3 loss to Philadelphia Flyers | MLive.com
At times the team looked as good as they have all season, at other times, not so much.

Datsyuk says he’s headache free; just getting headaches from media now | Macomb Daily

I expect him to be back against the Panthers on Tuesday at the earliest.

Duff: Emmerton seeking redemption with Red Wings | Windsor Star

I like Emmerton. The problem is that he has no future with the team. Especially with Sheahan being basically a lock to make the roster next year and Ferraro and Glendening are both close as well.

The good, bad & ugly of Lundqvist’s new seven-year, $59.5 million deal with the Rangers | Post-to-Post
The good: you have tied up Lundqvist long-term. The bad: you have tied up Lundqvist for 7 years. The ugly: you have tied up Lundqvist for the next 7 years and a cap hit of $8.5 million.

Your! Call: Which NHL club is Gretzky most likely to go to? | TSN
None if you ask me. I think he is done with working for/with the NHL. He's making a lot of money doing whatever promotion stuff he is doing right now. I don't think he really wants to get back into coaching or managing.
