The Detroit Jock City Morning Drive brings you all the links you need to read about your favorite hockey team on the Red Wings Wednesday edition.

From MLive: Pavel Datsyuk Returns For The Red Wings

"Getting Datsyuk back surely would help an offense that so far has sputtered; the four goals scored Friday at Toronto mark the only time the Wings have topped two goals in a game. Saturday, they scored once — in overtime. The power play has been especially egregious, its 9.5% success rate reflecting two goals on 21 opportunities."

From ESPN: Jimmy Howard Sets The Bar High

"There were times last season, particularly during a rough stretch for the Detroit Red Wings in November, that longtime goaltending coach Jim Bedard had to remind Jimmy Howardabout Howard’s first full season in Detroit. Bedard remembers one game in particular — Jan. 26, 2010. The Red Wings were up 4-2 against the Phoenix Coyotes in the third period, when Howard gave up two quick goals in the final minute and a half, first on a power-play goal from Keith Yandle, then the equalizer courtesy of Ed Jovanovski with just 23 seconds remaining in regulation."

From MLive: Stephen Weiss Takes First Step Back

"Although he only played eight minutes, it was a significant milestone since it marked the first time Weiss had appeared in a regular-season game since Dec. 10. “It felt awesome,” said Weiss, who was a healthy scratch in the Red Wings’ first four games. “It’s a lot more fun than watching games for sure. It felt pretty good too, not knowing whether I would play or not."
