Nightmare on Helm Street:
Detroit played well enough to win this game, but they didn't get the breaks they needed to pull it off. The defense is playing fine, Howard is playing well and the forwards are getting good chances, but they just won't go in the frigging net. This has been going on for about two months now. Detroit claimed the 5th spot and will play Nashville. Not the best outcome, but I'm interested in winning the cup, not just making a good showing and at some point, if you win the cup, you gotta play good teams.Lots of posts hit in this game. By the Wings, I mean. Chicago didn't hit any posts, of course. I'm glad that the Wings proved that they can still dominate, even though they came up short. The only question I have now is if they can keep it up for the next two months. We will see.It's playoff time! LGRW!

Now, it’s playoff time, a time where the Detroit Red...

from Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press, You will never figure him out.
Everybody around the Red Wings says that about Nicklas Lidstrom. Tell them you want to get inside the mind of Lidstrom—to understand his genius, to see what he sees. They laugh or shake their heads.
“It’s impossible to know how he can think that good,” coach Mike Babcock said.

Last season, the Detroit Red Wings nearly dashed the Chicago Blackhawks' playoff hopes in the final game of the regular season.
This time, the Blackhawks could play a spoiler of sorts in Saturday's finale at Joe Louis Arena with a chance to help deny the Red Wings home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs.
Chicago fell 4-3 to visiting Detroit on the last day...
