I hope that makes it easier for me to get a ticket to one of the first two games.

Nashville in 6 hate to say it.

Blows my mind why they'd tie it up to face them instead of pheonix.


It further blows my mind why anyone thinks any team is going to be easy or to prefer one over the other. Any team can beat another on any given night. I get that the Wings match up with certain teams better but we play who we are going to play and that's it. Only thing I was rooting for today was to hopefully get home ice, don't really care who we were to face Round 1.

Pavel with a sick move, JUST MISSED... Hudler better not be used anymore in shootouts would someone please like to tell me why Babcock uses him over FIL?!?!? ALso, sick move by Patty Kane gotta give him props for that. Overall I think the Wings will be ready for the playoffs:

- Mike Babcock, for the love of God PLEASE keep Datsyuk and Zetterberg on the same line, whether it be with Bertuzzi or Nyquist... the second that switch was made the Wings came alive
- Franzen is at least looking a lot more determined at TRYING to make plays so that is a positive sign
- Our PK has been fantastic lately and whether you wanna admit it or not, our powerplay has not been that bad either. Think about it, I am pretty sure we have hit at least 1 post on our powerplay over the course of the past 6 or 7 games, including 2 posts today... I think the Wings will get it together
- Though Jimmy had a little rebound trouble today, he looks primed and ready

Lastly, everyone is so worried about Nashville having to play in their building but dont forget the fact that almost every time we play in their building during the season is on the 2nd night of a back to back so we are tired... lets see how they fair against us when rested. It will be a great series but I do not think Nashville can withstand the Wings.

Never compare this team to the 08 team again

Yes, winning against a team the Wings went 3-3 against is now considered a miracle.


They have added significant pieces to their lineup though. And we do have a tendency to get shut down by good goalies and great defenses.

Let's hope the boys turn it on though.

If they can't beat Nashville in a 7 game series, they aren't good enough to win it all. I guess we'll see what this team is made of real soon.

I think the Wings went for it because of travel regardless of who that 3 seed would be, only thing that sucks about losing in the SO is that Nashville knows they have home ice and can rest players tonight.

Yes maybe Phoenix is the easier first round matchup but you can't think like that to win the Cup you will have to go through the best anyway, taking out all that travel in the first round can be beneficial.

Once it was tied, we were going to be in 5th. No way Nashville lose to Colorado if 4th place was on the line.

Not feeling great about our seeding ... good thing is that I can only be pleasantly surprised by the outcome of round 1.

Who's hoping SJ wins the Pacific now? Chicago vs. San Jose; one ******-bag team will be knocked out for sure in the first round.

Looking at the way #3 seed will turn out from the Pacific (PHX, LA, SJ), I'm actually happy we got Nashville. Steal a game in their barn and it's Detroit's series to lose. Plus if San Jose gets a play from Clowe off the bench, and the Sharks win. Then we can watch Chicago and them eliminate each other in a sure 7 game series.

Just another disgracefulf****** loss at home. This is ridiculous and especially to a slightly better than medicocre opponent with a medicore defense and goaltending. They made Crawford look great and the truth of the matter is he's no big deal and never has been. Where the hell is Illitch? Hopefully we'll be hearing from him after our early exit in the playoffs. He's the owner so let 'em do something about this fiasco and the jackasses that answer to 'em.

Eh don't care, they can end up in 8th and play Vancouver that would be fun to watch, also i think PHX can take the Hawks

Wasn't able to catch the game. How did the Sheahan kid look?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

UGH! How did I forget that extra negative. The travel to Phoenix would have been worse, same with watching late games, but at least there would have been plenty of Wings fans diluting their White Out nonsense. Nashville fans get their playoffs tickets free in packages of Donettes at the truck stop, do some asking around about this "hockey" in the line to get in, mouth-agape listening to opposing fans explain it.


And the lack of TV exposure this series will likely get.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

This.

The Wings don't have a preference, us fans shouldn't. I don't know why everyone is tucking their tails and getting scared of Nashville. They're definitely a tough team, they're also definitely mortal and the Wings have faced better teams.

It will be fun to watch. I'll panic if the Wings are down two games at any point.
