It is the first GLI title since 1986 for the Broncos, who are coached by former Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues bench boss Andy Murray.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The overriding theme of two struggling teams battling adversity and trying to find some solid ground to get their seasons going in the right direction was again ever-present in the latest episode of HBO's "24/7: Red Wings-Maple Leafs: Road to the NHL Winter Classic" that debuted Saturday night in the United States.

However, Part Three of the four-part series also served as foreshadowing to the one major event that binds the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs this season.

The 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will be played Wednesday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. HBO brought the viewer outside at the end of the near-hour long episode.

Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg was filmed skating on his frozen backyard pond with narrator Liev Schreiber providing the information that it was the first time he had ever skated there.

Saturday, 12.28.2013 / 6:48 PM / News


Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise has been placed on injured reserve and will stay off the ice as he tries to recover from a recurring foot injury, the Star Tribune reported Saturday.

Parise has missed two games since reaggravating an injury he sustained Nov. 25.

"He wants to be in the lineup. Hopefully every day he gets his rest is a day we get closer to him coming back," coach Mike Yeo told the newspaper. "He wants to get on the ice and he wants to help the team. He's a huge part of our team. We can't wait to have him back."

Sweden must fill void on blue line with Edler injury

Saturday, 12.28.2013 / 4:22 PM / 2014 Olympics

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The rosters for the 2014 Sochi Olympics will be announced shortly, but Sweden still has time to make adjustments in an attempt to improve off its fifth-place finish in 2010.

While it's unlikely there will be anything surprising or drastic, injuries could force unforeseen changes.

For instance, Sweden received some bad news earlier this month when Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler sustained an undisclosed injury that will keep him out indefinitely. Edler, who was projected to be in Sweden's top six, has not played since Dec. 3.


Daily Primer Dec 28: Tough challenge for Blackhawks

Saturday, 12.28.2013 / 4:18 AM / Features


The Chicago Blackhawks are 7-0-2 in the second half of back-to-back sets this season. Extending that success won't be easy.

The Blackhawks breezed past the Colorado Avalanche at home on Friday, winning 7-2. But the second half of the back-to-back involves a trip to St. Louis, the team that's chasing them in the Central Division. The Blues have already beaten the Blackhawks twice this season, including once at Scottrade Center, where St. Louis is 14-3-2.

Here's a look at all of the action scheduled for Saturday:

Boston Bruins at Ottawa Senators -- Don't be surprised if there's some rancor between these teams; they're playing the back end of a home-and-home series that began with a 5-0 victory for the Bruins in Boston on Friday. Reilly Smith had two of Boston's four third-period goals as the Bruins blew the game open in the final 20 minutes. The Senators hope Craig Anderson, who's expected to be back in goal, will be able to build on a 5-0 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night


Tapped In: Wings' Miller talks outdoors, hockey family

Saturday, 12.28.2013 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

The game of hockey has a long tradition in the Miller family. For Michigan native and Detroit Red Wings forward Drew Miller, learning the family trait meant continuing a rich tradition at Michigan State, long car rides in the family van, and listening from his wise older brother, Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller. After winning the Stanley Cup in his first year as a pro, Miller has grown to become an asset with his current team, Detroit, in a city he feels has a lot more to give both on and off the ice.

Kathryn Tappen: Big game coming up for you! The stage is set for New Year's Day at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor for the [2014 Bridgestone NHL] Winter Classic. How much are you looking forward to that game?

Drew Miller: It's going to be an exciting game. To think that over 100,000 fans will be watching is completely overwhelming to even think about. We skated at Comerica Park last week for practice and it's a bit different skating outside. The rink seems so small, to think that the football stadium is way bigger than that is going to be quite an adjustment. The game itself will be such an incredible experience to be a part of. Seeing that it's Michigan, that will be an adjustment for me as a Michigan State guy. That's foreign territory for me. Me and [Red Wings teammate Justin] Abdelkader haven't quite figured out what we're going to do yet. We may have to wear something Michigan State underneath our gear for morning skate.


Rink-building crew works long night into morning

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It was quiet enough inside Michigan Stadium at about 10 p.m. Friday to hear water being sprayed near the other side of the ice surface.

There were seven people in the bowl of the stadium at the time and six of them were putting down the lines, faceoff circles and goal creases that turn a sheet of ice with boards into a hockey rink for the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

A sunny day meant a long night and early morning for members of Dan Craig's rink-building crew.

"This is normal," said Craig, the NHL Facilities Operations Manager. "We were supposed to start spraying white [paint] at 10 [a.m.] and be ready to do lines at 2 [p.m.]. Instead we started at 4 and we were ready to [start] doing lines at 8. It is what it is. Mother Nature dictates what you do. Don't argue, just run with it."

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
