I don't like our chances, were either due or doomed.

Or maybe its because we've always been at home in game 7s for so many years :P

No better time than the present! Of course, when was the last one?

St. Louis in the early 90's was the last time they played a game 7 on the road.

Who cares about these useless stats, though.

Carolina went into New Jersey and won last year, Pittsburgh did it here...happens all the time. Home ice is pretty useless in the NHL.

What are our stats for Game 7's on the road where half the attendees are Wings' fans?
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

And the last time we won game 5 on the road was in 1966. Sounds like the team is trying to set things up a little differently this year ;)

Regardless, stats never tell the whole story. If Detroit wants this win bad enough, they'll get it whether they're on the road or not.

Well, on the bright side, the 1996-97 team had a pretty horrible stat facing them: the Wings hadn't won a Stanley Cup since 1955. Didn't exactly stop them from doing it anyway, though.

Some things never die.

Honestly, I don't like these kind of stats. Those teams from the past have nothing to do with the current team.

There is always a first time for everything. Wings have achieved almost everything, now they can add a road game 7 victory to that long list of achievements.

Although the Wings have not won a game on the road since the early 90s, they have won at Pheonix already this series. All we have to do is back our boys and pray TO GOD that the team that had the most points after the Olympic break show up! If they don't, we are screwed and we are going to be watching the rest of the playoffs. Have faith ladies and gentlemen....have faith and the faithful will come alive!

I think the more concerning stat is out of the past three opportunities to eliminate a team from the playoffs, the Wings are 0 for 3.

The Wings haven't won a away game 7 since '64.

The Coyotes were founded in '72.

It does make me glad the game will be on FSD instead of NBC. Ken, Mickey, and crew will probably bring it up only once, while the other guys would be harping on it all night.

ok... out of this stat, how many have we actually played in? they barely ever made the playoffs in the 80's and pretty much always had home ice for the last 20 years... so how many ROAD game 7's have we even played in the last 30 years?

EDIT - sorry, just had to point this out... "have NEVER won since"... shouldn't it have just been "have not won since"? Never implies, well, just that, never... grammar is a pet peeve of mine, sorry for being over-analytical

This would be relevant if the 2009-2010 Wings and Yote's played all those series 30 years ago. As they did not, you really don't have much to base it on.

Forwarded Babcock these stats and PROOF of doom and gloom right now. I believe he's on the phone with Bettman and Illitch trying to get Game 7 cancelled and the victory awarded to Phoenix, as there's no point showing up Tuesday. 
Even better, I've already sent Lidstrom a note with golf times later in the week!
There! Now you "fans" can quit posting WHY we are gonna lose and tell us instead why the hell you even bother being Wings fans??

Go Wings!!!
