Red Wings grounded

AP , CAHOKIA,ILLINOIS

The Detroit Red Wings didn't get out of St. Louis with a NHL victory over the Blues. In fact, they didn't get out of town at all.

After falling 4-3 to the Blues on Tuesday, the Red Wings escaped injury when their team jet's right wheels got stuck in the grass and mud at St. Louis Downtown Airport in the St. Louis suburb of Cahokia, Illinois.

Airport director Bob McDaniel says the DC-9, the Red Bird II, was leaving the parking ramp and still was on the taxiway when the wheels inadvertently slipped off the pavement during a turn. There were no injuries.
