The Detroit Red Wings were bounced out of this years playoffs after the first round by the Boston Bruins, but the Wings did extend their streak to 23 straight years in the playoffs.
To make things worse, four men were reportedly seen in Detroit’s Campus Martius early this morning stealing the head off of goalie Jimmy Howard’s bobblehead. Thankfully, cops recovered the head after questioning a man in Allen Park.
But the plot thickens…
Police are still searching for the head of Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk. The bobblehead was apparently vandalized last week.
General manager for Fox Sports Detroit, Greg Hammaren told the Detroit News:
“What’s disappointing is that these bobbleheads were supposed to be up for charitable auctions for the Boys & Girls Club of America after they were displayed in the city“.
