The Majors Detroit:
Remember when everyone was ******** about Justin Abdelkader being on the same line as Pavel Datsuk seemingly believing that he (Abdelkader) didn’t belong?
Well how do you feel about that now?
After sitting out two games well deserved games for a vicious hit on Toni Lydman, Abdelkader scored his second playoff goal this season coming shorthanded as the 7th seeded Red Wings defeated the 2nd seeded Ducks 3-2 in Game 7 to move onto the second round.
Although it didn’t stand as the game winner, Abdelkader’s shorthanded tally may have very well of taken enough out of the Anaheim sail to propel the Wings to victory.
Henrik Zetterberg got things going for the Wings scoring at the 1:49 mark of the first period. This came after scoring twice in Game 6 totaling 8 points in the opening round. The Red Wing captain however took a delay of game penalty late in the third period which resulted in a Francois Beauchemin power play goal making for a dramatic finish.

BEST OF MAXIM
The Detroit Red Wings were tied 1-1 with the Anaheim Ducks late in the first period when Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey took a bad penalty. Lucky for him, Justin Abdelkader was there to save the day. Abdelkader used some great stick placement to break up a D-to-D pass by Francois Beauchemin and was off to the races. Abdelkader came in on Jonas Hiller and beat him five-hole...
This isn't the same Detroit Red Wings team that won four Stanley Cups from 1997-2008.
It isn't even the same team that started this lockout-shortened season.
When Nick Lidstrom and Tomas Holmstrom retired and Henrik Zetterberg assumed the captaincy, it was clear that the Wings would go through a transition period.
Unlike some other teams that went through very lean periods...

The final minutes felt a lot like Friday night, up 3-1 until a Ducks goal would make things far too interesting, and butt clenching and stuff. The Ducks wouldn't get the equalizer this time, though, and the Red Wings would perservere in regulation and, in all, an extremely hard-faught seven-game series a lot of people, myself included, thought...

from John Niyo of the Detroit News,
The Wings don't have many pending free agents on the roster, but they do have a few, and none more notable - or mystifying - than Valtteri Filppula, the 29-year-old Finnish center who has become a lightning rod for criticism this spring.
In this new-and-improved, salary cap-strapped NHL, where nearly every team insists its focus is...

Earlier in their quarterfinal playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock scoffed at the importance of matching up lines.
When your guys play good, whether youre at home or on the road, a lot of things happen, Babcock told reporters before Game 3. The better your team does, the more in control you are.
When he (the opponent) starts chasing the game, you...
Valtteri Filppula had a somewhat quiet playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks. But when the Detroit Red Wings needed him the most, Filppula delivered.
The Wings’ forward assisted on Henrik Zetterberg’s early goal in Game 7, then tallied what would be the game-winning goal in the second period, backhanding one past Jonas Hiller. Filppula took a pretty pass from Danny Cleary...
