[singlepic id=51 w=484 h=100 float=center]   Western Conference Quarterfinals    Anaheim Ducks (2) vs. Detroit Red Wings (7) Season Series: Red Wings win 2-1 Game 1: Red Wings @ Ducks Game 2: Red Wings @ Ducks Game 3: Ducks @ Red Wings Game 4: Ducks @ Red Wings *Game 5: Red Wings @ Ducks *Game 6: Ducks @ Red Wings *Game 7: Red Wings @ Ducks *-If necessary   It took the Detroit Red Wings until the final day of the regular season to clinch their 22nd consecutive playoff berth, but they did it in convincing fashion, winning their final four games while dominating each team. The Red Wings are heating up and at the perfect time. That can bode badly for the Anaheim Ducks who have had a playoff berth and second place locked up for a period of time now but have still won three out of their past five. In the past, the Red Wings and Ducks have met up for some entertaining and fast paced playoff series and there is no reason that this should be any ...

Corey Perry kicks Jimmy Howard

In the second period of Game 1 on Tuesday night, the Ducks' Corey Perry ill-advisedly skated through the crease and lifted his left skate, which came into contact with the face of Wings netminder Jimmy Howard. Have a look at the dangerous play below [via SB Nation]: The Clint Malarchuk incident always comes to mind in these situations. Thankfully, Howard was okay...

Red Wings embarking on 22nd straight playoffs

The Detroit Red Wings will begin their 22nd consecutive playoff appearance on Tuesday night (10:30 p.m. ET vs. the Mighty Mighty Ducks). It's the longest playoff streak in all of sports. It's a wonderful coincidence the Red Wings have a guy on their team named Tootoo and his number is 22. The streak is something I want to jot some notes about. When I was growing up, idolizing...

The Red Wings and the Playoffs.

I'm an avid KK reader but rarely a writer.  I only really write anything when I'm fired up or angry about the Wings.  I am brutally honest and never sugarcoat anything.  I can say that I watch every single Wings game without fail.  I'm a stat and cap geek.  I've been ganged up on and called names before for voicing my opinion by so called bigger fans on the...

Red Wings-Ducks Preview

A day after the Anaheim Ducks wrapped up the most impressive regular season in franchise history, they were eager to forget all about it. The Ducks realize their impressive record and Pacific Division title won't matter much to the Detroit Red Wings, who had to scramble just to make the postseason while Anaheim only needed to coast. That's why Detroit is a fashionable pick...

The travel will test, but the way the Red Wings have been playing for the past week should carry them through this series. The Wings already showed twice this season that they can win in Anaheim.
