Red Wings grounded

While taxiing away from the terminal at St. Louis Downtown Airport , the right wheels of the Red Wings’ team plane inadvertently crossed into the grass next to the tarmac. Due to heavy rains the prior day, the wheels sank into the mud and the plane was not able to dislodge under its own power. The plane was traveling at approximately five miles per hour at the time. The Red Wings disembarked in a normal manner and returned to their team hotel in St. Louis for the evening.

The perils of flying. Detroit doesn't play again until a home matchup with Chicago on Saturday, so this isn't really much of a setback.

That's ridiculous. Those wheels ought to be fired immediately. And who put them in charge of where the plane goes?
