Happy #Miracle Day.
The Red Wings fell to the Columbus Blue Jackets by a score of 3-2 yesterday. Follow this link to see our photo gallery from the game, and some comments from Canton native James Wisniewski on returning to his home state and leaving with a win.
In a scary play during the second period, Columbus forward Artem Anisimov appeared to be knocked unconscious during a play behind the Red Wings’ goal involving Kyle Quincey. The latest report from NHL.com says that Anisimov never lost consciousness, and that he’s already been cleared to leave the hospital and return home to Columbus. It’s great to hear that he’s going to be OK.
Jan Mursak has been put on waivers – he’ll be heading to Grand Rapids if nobody else claims him by Saturday at noon.
Meanwhile, Zach Redmond’s season has come to an abrupt end after the Traverse City native was cut by a teammate’s skate in practice yesterday. The skate blade cut the Ferris State alum’s femoral artery and surrounding vein. Hopefully Redmond can get all healed up quickly, and return to game form soon.
It’s the second-to-last weekend of the CCHA regular season…hope you’re ready for another big weekend of college hockey. Here are the games we’re watching:
- Michigan at Ohio State
- Northern Michigan at Bowling Green
- Miami at Lake Superior
- Notre Dame at Western Michigan (huge series there)
- Michigan State at Alaska
Thirty-three years ago today, the U.S. topped the Soviets in the ‘Miracle On Ice’. Are you celebrating by watching the movie?
Fenton native and former Michigan Tech Husky Ron Rolston coached his first NHL game yesterday, but the Sabres could only muster up a goal for him, and they lost 3-1 to Toronto.
Taylor Hall’s getting a phone call from the League, and it’s not for a promo spot they need him to film. The Oilers’ No. 4 is looking at a suspension.
Rick DiPietro has been put on waivers. I repeat, Rick DiPietro has been put on waivers. The horror story continues for the New York Islanders and their former ‘elite prospect’.
Rolston’s first post-game interview session with the media as a NHL head coach.
We’ll be with you all weekend – hope you enjoy another hockey-filled break from work/school.
