Let's see...we leave town for a week, come back and the Wings have 100 points and are in 5th place. :satisfied: We couldn't watch any of the games, but from what I read here last night about the Philly game, their goons took advantage of the fact that our guys had to be playing tired from the day before.

If I'm reading the standings correctly, they mean that we'll probably be playing the Coyotes in the first round. Not thrilled about that so if I'm wrong, somebody please correct me!

Other than that, it's gonna be a great game and I'm thinking we'll beat them. They're under the pressure in this one, not us.

GO, WINGS!!! And congrats!!!!

Red Wings control own destiny in race to finish fifth in Western Conference

By Ansar Khan

April 10, 2010, 10:39PM

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings control their own destiny in the three-way race for fifth place in the Western Conference.

Detroit and Nashville are tied for fifth with 100 points each. Los Angeles is in seventh with 99 points. The Predators have no more games left but are assured of having the tie-breaker against the Red Wings and the Kings due to more wins.

If the Red Wings beat Chicago on Sunday, they will clinch fifth place and draw Phoenix in the first round of the playoffs, regardless of what happens in the L.A.-Colorado game.

If Detroit loses in overtime or a shootout and the Kings lose to Colorado in regulation or OT/shootout, Detroit still will finish fifth and play Phoenix.

If the Red Wings lose in overtime or a shootout and the Kings beat Colorado, Detroit will finish sixth and play Vancouver.

If the Red Wings and Kings both lose in regulation, Detroit will finish sixth and play Vancouver.

If the Wings lose in regulation, and the Kings gain at least one point against the Avalanche, Detroit will finish seventh and play San Jose.

The Blackhawks have something to play for Sunday. They need a win to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Chicago trails San Jose by two points but owns the tie-breaker by having more wins.

I don't understand why anybody is afraid of the 'Nucks. Weren't they the same team we beat on the way to the last 2 cups? Luongo has done NOTHING in the "real season". He is great in the regular season, but playoffs is another story. I think all of the top 4 teams will be watching because ANY of them can play the Wings depending on what today's result is of the important games.

None of the 4 teams want to play the hottest team the last 6 weeks. They have only lost 8 points since the break!

Did we get bumped off of NBC? Lame, I was looking forward to watching this in HD. Guess I'll be streaming it instead.

Edit: BTW, you have Columbus mentioned a couple times where it should be Chicago.

Gotta love people here in PHX. Just like the team that literally doubles regular season single ticket prices for Wings games, playoff tix on CL state '$25 more if we play Wings.' And yet, gonna grab me some of those.

Plz win. I do not want to see NSH or LAK here.

I'd rather face the nucks too. I'm not sure why everyone thinks the yotes are easier.

Funny the B's and Caps are now on NBC?

Yet that game has no playoff implications.

The only spot in question is the 8th.

The Wings and Kings games could affect 3-4 teams.

I understand the Caps are hot and AO is a star of the league, but to pull the Wings Hawks (not to mention the history here) for B's Caps.

Meh not super happy with that call.

Maybe my local game was always the B's and I never looked before today? I am in NH.

Of course we should want Pheonix. They have no playoff experience and it would be like 7 home games.

And we did not beat Vancouver on the way to the 2008 finals. (not important just fyi)

Um... The Yotes have more points... They are not going to be any easier then the Nucks. Nonetheless, the Wings can handle either team. Plus, there are always tons of Wings fans when we play in Phx so that would be nice to see in the playoffs. Go Wings lets take 5th and head into the playoffs playing very well! :siren:

Here it is -

Thanks, HT to you and Crotty for the info and input. I'm still not thrilled with playing the Yotes but I'm not sure Vancouver would be that much easier for us. But I really do BELIEVE that the Wings are on a roll and they like the Winning Thing.

We shall see, eh? :ph34r:

I don't believe in picking your poison but let me explain why people would rather play the Yotes over the Canucks.

Phoenix is ridiculously inexperienced when it comes to the playoffs. They look a lot like Columbus did last year, everyone said they had strong goaltending and some decent offense. But the inexperience and the lack any stars will hurt them in many people's eyes.

Contrast that with Vancouver, whose goalie is world-class and just won the Gold medal by saving his collapsing team and proving he can play under immense pressure. Their offense is on fire and they have multiple threats.

The Wings can beat both, but that's why people think the Coyotes would be the easier path.

I thought Phoenix was the better match up until yesterday when my dad brought up an interesting idea. Since Phoenix is Bettmans team and with the s*** they pulled last year to help Pittsburgh win, the fix could be in to give Phoenix a deep playoff run.

My Dad is kinda a conspiracy theorist and I really doubt they would really rig it. But after the no suspension on Malkin and the too many men last year, it kinda makes you wonder.

GO WINGS

Oh I forgot to mention, this could hopefully be the last game Wiliams plays in a wings jersey for a very long time!
