Red Wings Flyers Hockey


  • Since we last chatted, the Wings made the playoffs for the 19th-straight season.
  • The Wings reached 100 points for the 10th-straight season.
  • The Wings improved their post-Olympics record to 15-3-2, the best in the NHL.

Score: Wings 1, Blue Jackets 0, SO

Game #81 (1 game remaining on Sunday at Chicago, 2 points), 100 points, 5th place.

What I liked about the game: Jimmy Howard with the shutout and 22 saves … The way the Wings played the game.

What I did’t like about the game: I wish scoring was easier for this team, even when it’s healthy. But this was playoff hockey, and the Wings look playoff ready.

The BIG question: Who will the Wings play in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. And, does it matter? Maybe Phoenix? Vancouver?

Quote: “We got what we needed (and) got some exercise. The team played really well and everyone’s doing good.” — Mike Babcock.
Well, aren’t we jaunty.

Mood Meter: Happy. The Wings are playoff ready.
