Detroit Red Wings: The Detroit News 

Red Wings can't hold early lead, face possible elimination Saturday

Red Wings for Game 4: Henrik Zetterberg in, Jimmy Howard out

Henrik Zetterberg was back in the Red Wings lineup for Game 4. But Jimmy Howard was not, Jonas Gustavsson getting the start in net. Howard was announced as having the flu. Zetterberg took part in the pregame skate, much to the delight and euphoria of the sold-out Joe Louis Arena, and had no problems after being cleared by team doctors earlier in the day.

Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg needs to get up to speed

It's about time for Red Wings to turn team over to the kids

Allow Luke Glendening, Tomas Jurco, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and anybody else left in Grand Rapids to grow as a team. And have them mentored by Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk. The Red Wings have a solid nucleus, and that should be the focus.

As task gets tougher against Bruins, Red Wings seek the poise to bounce back

The challenge is daunting, which is usually the type of challenge Mike Babcock enjoys. There's a fine line between hope and false hope, and the Wings are straddling it right now.

Bruins' Milan Lucic says Red Wings fans boos, chants make it 'more fun to play'

Paternity leave for Datsyuk, Kronwall? Uh, no: 'They're not giving birth'

Both Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall didn't practice Wednesday, with Datsyuk celebrating the birth of a daughter, and Kronwall's family expecting the arrival of a new baby at any time.

There's a chance Red Wings star Henrik Zetterberg could return to the lineup when Detroit resumes its Eastern Conference playoff series against the Bruins on Thursday night.

Red Wings search for spark early in games

If there's any shot to even the best-of-seven series against the Bruins, the Red Wings need to create more chances, make life a little more difficult for goaltender Tuukka Rask — and score.

Mind games work for Bruins forward Brad Marchand

Brad Marchand has been known as an agitator, playing a physical style despite his size. But it isn't the physical aspect of the forward's game that has driven the Red Wings — and their fans — crazy as the Bruins head into Game 4 of the first-round series tonight with a 2-1 lead.

Wednesday's NHL playoffs roundup: Stars beat Ducks, even series 2-2

Red Wings not up to speed, look completely overmatched

Bruins rattle Red Wings by showing how they got to Stanley Cup Finals

The Red Wings were blanked Tuesday night in Game 3 just like they were blanked last spring against the Ducks. And as the fans filed out of Joe Louis Arena, blankety-blanking the home team, there were plenty of easy targets.

Youth, inexperience show on jittery Red Wings

After failing to capitalize on a rare turnover by Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, Hamilton came back minutes later to score a power-play goal to help the Bruins win 3-0 and take a 2-1 series lead.

Red Wings looking for their scoring punch

Somehow the Red Wings are going to need to find a way to score goals. What they're doing, or rather not doing, isn't working. Tuesday night's 3-0 shutout loss to Boston was the latest offensive misfire. Detroit has scored two goals the first three games, falling behind 2-1 in the best-of-seven first-round series.

Bruins' Claude Julien: We're a good skating team, too
