Bally Sports Sports showed a video that gave Detroit Red Wings fans something to smile about after a 5-1 loss to Boston Bruins in a Sunday afternoon matinee. It was more Mickey Redmond.
It was the eight-year anniversary of popular television analyst Mickey Redmond’s memorable pass to Sergei Fedorov, for a nifty goal in a Detroit-Toronto outdoor alumni game at Comerica Park. What makes the clip better is that Mickey gets to call the action. It’s worth a listen.
After Fedorov scores on a back door tap-in, former Detroit goalie and current Bally analyst Chris Osgood said: “Felix Potvin had no chance on that one.”
Added Redmond: “He never got a pass from an older guy than that one. That’s for sure.”
Redmond was 66 when he made the pass. Fedorov was 44. Redmond retired from the NHL in 1976 and Fedorov left the NHL in 2009 to play in the Kontinental Hockey League.

Rumor of the Day
The Athletic’s Pierre Lebrun said he believes the Florida Panthers will make an offer for Montreal defenseman Ben Chiarot.
Around the NHL
Detroit: The Red Wings’ power play is causing problems yet again and Detroit couldn’t match Boston’s physical play.
Also, looking back at a nutty night 51 years ago when the Gordie Howe-led Red Wings lost by a 13-0 score.
Boston: More optimism in Boston after a successful weekend, which included moving into a wild card position.
Pittsburgh: Brian Boyle’s personal leave turned out to be for the birth of his son Callum.
Also, the Penguins have won eight in a row. Anyone else wondering how good can this team be?
Washington: Sammi Silber writes about the Capitals holding a mini-training camp to get their team ready for the second half of the season.
