KGB is to blame for 'Miracle on Ice,' says Fetisov Steve Schrader, Detroit Free Press 5:22 p.m. EST January 21, 2015 Finally, the mystery is solved. How could the Soviet Union lose to the overmatched USA team in the Miracle on Ice? And why did Viktor Tikhonov pull the great Vladislav Tretiak? Former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Slava Fetisov blames the KGB. But it wasn't a spy thriller that played out at the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid. It was politics. Fetisov — in the new documentary "Red Army," which is the subject of a feature in this week's Sports Illustrated — says then-CCCP coach Tikhonov was beholden to the KGB and favored Moscow Dynamo players such as goalie Vladimir Myshkin over Red Army players. Dynamo represented the KGB. Fetisov and Tretiak played for CSKA Moscow, which represented the Red Army. Of course, Tikhonov famously and inexplicably — until now — pulled Tretiak in favor of Myshkin after one period of the 4-3 loss. "Three out of four goals was scored on a Dynamo player defensively," Fetisov says. "It's a KGB organization. Three goals out of four. I didn't allow one goal in this game." If true, the move backfired on Tikhonov. "Tikhonov tried to kill Red Army," Fetisov says. "If Tikhonov would have won Olympic gold in Lake Placid, I guarantee, no (bleeping) Russian Five would exist. Dynamo would have dominated from then on. The loss of the Olympics in '80 helped me to become who I am." So Hockeytown thanks Tikhonov, too. As far the loss, Fetisov says it was just one game in Russia's long and glorious dominance of the sport. "For American people, selective memory, it's a national thing," he says. "I admit, I own one of the most famous silver medals in sports history. Correct? Done?" The film is currently scheduled to open in metro Detroit on Feb. 27 at the Main Art Theatre in Royal Oak.

Red Wings bolt for southern climes at break of dawn By Helene St. James, Detroit Free Press 12:16 p.m. EST January 21, 2015 Danny DeKeyser, be warned: Your teammates will abandon you like a broken stick. The Detroit Red Wings made like teenagers on spring break today, with many having scheduled break-of-dawn flights to get closer to the equator. The Wings will have five whole days to relish the All-Star break, all the better after racking up a five-game winning streak with a Tuesday victory over the Minnesota Wild. The Wings, as of this afternoon, were without a representative at this weekend's NHL All-Star Game in Columbus, Ohio, because their sole selection, goalie Jimmy Howard, had to pull out because of injury. The only way a Wings player will make it is if an All- Star skater gets hurt tonight and requires a replacement. But don't count on it. Tomas Tatar, highly eligible with 21 goals, was headed out of town today, too, and sounded like he'd be turning off his phone. Wings forward Riley Sheahan was part of a group headed to Cancun, Mexico. "There's probably not going to be much hockey talk," he said. "It's just going to be relaxation. It'll be nice. I think everyone is looking forward to the break. We don't get time to relax that often, so it'll be good to spend some time just laying low." Defenseman Brendan Smith was headed to Turks and Caicos with younger brother Reilly, who plays for the Boston Bruins. "We'll both go and hang out and get lots of sun," Brendan Smith said. "It's a good time to get away from the game." Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson said he, his wife and their 15-month-old daughter are "going someplace warm. But if I lived in Florida, I think I would go to a snowy place where I can ski." Petr Mrazek and Stephen Weiss also were headed to Florida, Weiss to visit his wife's parents. The veteran forward said that the All-Star break is timed perfectly because "you're past the halfway mark. Guys can use a few days to rest some things they've got going on physically, and also take a few days off mentally to prepare for that second- half charge. That's when the pace amps up and points become more crucial, so it's important to be fresh for that stretch. And these few days should help that." Possibly the Wing with the swankiest destination is Justin Abdelkader, who had a trip planned to Peter Island, a private island in the British Virgin Islands with one hotel that has just 52 rooms. He was among several Wings scheduled to begin the morning with a 6:30 flight to Atlanta. For a group used to having radio play-by-play man Ken Kal be their version of TSA security, it begged the question of who might flunk actual TSA screening. "Danny DeKeyser," Abdelkader said without hesitation. "He'll have something on him that he'll forget about, some liquid, and that'll get confiscated. We wouldn't wait for him. We'd tell him to catch the next flight."
Best of the best: 5 fun things to do Jan. 15-21 Greg Crawford , Detroit Free Press 11:29 a.m. EST January 21, 2015 Planning to catch "I LOVE LUCY LIVE ON STAGE" this weekend at Macomb Center? Here's what you can expect: You'll find yourself in a 1952 audience at Desilu Productions and awaiting an "I Love Lucy" taping. A host will explain the particulars of this new thing called "television" and a group of singers will perform '50s advertising jingles in perfect harmony. Then actors portraying Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel will take the stage to re-create two very familiar episodes of the beloved sitcom. The first, "The Benefit," finds Lucy trying to (what else?!) weasel her way into an act with Ricky. The second, "Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined," finds our heroine rendered nearly blind by eyedrops just before she takes the stage as a dancer in Ricky's show. 2 & 7 p.m. Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday, Macomb Center for the Performing Arts, 44575 Garfield, Clinton Township. 586-286-2222. www.macombcenter.com. $54-$59, $69 pit seating. It goes without saying that Ted Lindsay, 89, has some interesting hockey stories to tell. From playing alongside Gordie Howe and winning four Stanley Cups with the Red Wings in the 1950s to feuding with Maple Leafs owner Conn Smythe and leading the fight for a players union, Lindsay lived up to the moniker Terrible Ted during a playing career that lasted 21 years. (After that, he spent several seasons as a hockey broadcaster and was the Wings' GM from 1977 through 1980.) Lindsay will look back and reflect during ONE NIGHT IN HISTORY on Jan. 21 in Warren. Mickey Redmond, current TV color analyst for the Wings, will moderate the discussion, and the guest list includes Igor Larionov, Chris Chelios and Scotty Bowman. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Andiamo Celebrity Showroom, 7096 E. Fourteen Mile, Warren. 586-268-3200. www.tedlindsay.com. $49, $99 VIP. There must be some eternal truths lurking somewhere in author John Gray's "MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS." Since its publication in 1992, the book has sold 50 million copies, been translated into 40 languages and inspired everything from workout videos to his-and-hers salad dressings. It also has given birth to a one- man theatrical event, which returns to Detroit on Jan. 21 with actor Peter Story, who riffs his way through stories involving everything from dating and marriage to bedroom activities. The show, a fusion of theater and stand-up comedy, was first produced in Paris in 2007. Opens at 8 p.m. Jan. 21 and continues through Jan. 25, City Theatre, 2301 Woodward, Detroit. 313-471-3464. www.olympiaentertainment.com. $54. More than 7,000 canines representing more than 160 breeds are headed to Novi this weekend for the MICHIGAN WINTER DOG CLASSIC, an 81-year-old event that bills itself as the state's largest dog show. Along with various competitions (agility, obedience and so forth), the four-day event will include breed seminars, educational demonstrations and the return of popular attraction My Dog Can Do That! The latter
allows owners to put their pooches through American Kennel Club tests of agility and skill. New this year are a diving event, which tests dogs' retrieval skills in water, and a barn hunt, which measures sniffing instincts. 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River Ave., Novi. 248-348-5600. www.themichiganwinterdogclassic.com. $10, $8 children 7-12 and seniors, free to children 6 and younger. Though his stand-up act is adult in nature, BRUCE BRUCE prides himself on keeping it free of vulgarity. The funny man, actor ("Think Like a Man," "Top Five") and former host of BET's
