Default Go Wings 2013 making the playoffs for 22 straight years

They didn't impress me all season but seem to be playing better and have some momentum. I think it took half a season to get used to all the changes. Losing Lidstrom & Homer along with Bertuzzi & Helm out was a big adjustment.

That was a pretty solid last 3-4 weeks of defense (well, except for a few games). I know they still lost a lot of those games, but that is a good sign.

I have to admit but I kind of liked it that it went down to the last game of the regular season. Usually it's pretty ho-hum the last couple of weeks when they clinch the playoff spot really early with not much to play for to the end except avoiding injuries along the way. The way it went down this year made for some pretty interesting hockey up til the last game since every game meant something. And they are on a roll going in to the playoffs, which is a great thing.

Happy to see them keep the streak going, but I had to laugh at being the 7 spot with a 500 record.

The Kings won the Cup last season with a sub .500 regular season record and the 8th seed. And in '95-'96 the Wings set a NHL record with 62 wins in the season, and got bounced in the first round. Just get in the playoffs, after that all bets are off.

I think they might have a good chance against the ducks... I'm glad they squeaked into 7 so they didn't have to play Chicago.

I still need to see Bert play, I was hoping he would have been in the game Thursday when I drove over there for the last regular season game
