Scary matchup but if they play to potential they can pull it off.

If only they had not been blow out by the Habs and the Islanders, this is my last comment on the regular season.

Let's Go Red Wings!!!

They just need to go in there, steal game one and say we're the Detroit Red Wings, this isn't going to be a cakewalk.

I root for a Thursday start and not Weds just for the extra day of rest and preparation. Totally winnable if they choose to play a 60 minute game series.

So if we stay tied with Nashville after their game tonight, we still sit in the 5 spot?!? We have one more win overall, less OT wins, and the season series was tied.... How does it make sense that the tie-breaker goes to Nashville?

Did they change the rules, I thought they went off points, then overall wins as the first tie breaker?

Can't wait to watch Skillzy haul down Datsyuk and Zetterberg left and right and not get called once like in 2009 <_<

Should be an interesting series, I don't have a ton of confidence in this team right now. But they've proven that the flicking of the switch is actually real with them, so bring on Game 1.

Preds in 5 or 6. Sorry, love the Wings but I've got to be realistic. Preds have reloaded whereas we got Quincey.

All you that are predicting Nashville to win , please exit right and don't watch anymore because it just won't be worth your time.

I couldn't agree with you more. I could never bet against the Wings. They played the Preds tight all season. If they can get their road game going, then they'll be fine. Wings in 6. They'll show Suter/Weber why they should come and play for the Wings. GO WINGS!!!



Never undersestimate the predictability of stupidity

They just need to solve Rinne and do it quick, take his confidence and start working the rest of the team from there.

These names make me feel safe: Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Howard and hopefully Helm sooner than later. That group has has moderate success in the playoffs :-).

Datsyuk has Rinne's number. Red Wings are going to school Nashville... Preds are out of their league agaisnt a superior and veteran DRWs.
