I'll go with us in 4.

 

I'm so confident we'll win this series that I'm already looking forward to Chicago in the 2nd round.

Don't like this match up for a lot of reasons, including travel, their style of play, and their luck. Hope I am wrong, but, I think the Ducks in 5-6.

Kann man nicht binden sind nicht verwandt
In Funken versunken steh ich in Flammen
und bin im Wasser verbrannt
Im Wasser verbrannt

Words cannot describe how thrilled I am this will be the last year our playoff games start at 10:30 before we make it to the Finals.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I tried to embed the video but failed :(.  But for sure they'll be showing this video on the jumbotron at the Joe.

No Lidstrom, no Stuart, tons of injuries, a year in transition---no problem! What a job by the team and the coaching staff.

I actually feel pretty good about playing the Ducks.  I'm excited for this to get underway.  Super proud of our D this year.  Lots of young guys and they've done great!

 

Does anybody have advice for how to watch the playoffs?  I'm living in grad res, so I get basic channels (i.e. CBC).  I've only been able to watch Wings games because I paid for GameCenter this year, but now what?  I don't mind paying to watch online, but is that even an option for the playoffs?

If you need an online stream to watch the game, just shoot me a pm bro.

As much as I think the Wings have a better chance against the Ducks, can't say I am happy losing 8:00 start times.

They'll be 8:00 start times for me!

As someone stuck out West, can I just say THANK YOU for later start times? I probably would have gotten fired for leaving early if the games started at 7 EST...

Whew! Glad I didn't make that Filppula & Franzen for Ryan deal now! :lol:

 

Seriously, the Wings handled the Ducks pretty well all season and have to be one of the hottest teams rolling right now...2 shutouts the last 4 games, outscored opponents 14 to 3...PP lit it up, PK shut them down, Euro twins pumping all cylinders, seems like Playoff-Franzen may make an appearance and the bottom 6 are killing teams!

 

There is no way that Babcock makes a roster change until he has to! Sorry Bert and Sammy, but team playing too well together right now...same with Cola and White....

 

 

edit: That being said, The Wings handled themselves well against Chicago and Vancouver as well.  I think they could upset any of them...starting with the Ducks.  Don't "they" say that the 2 v. 7 seed is more so the upset round then any others? Far be it from us to upset the Hockey Gods! :lol:

I had been rooting for an all O6 first round but it looks like everything was just a little off for that to happen.  Chicago-Detroit has to happen at some point to provide a fitting end to an era.

Wings really deserve this playoff appearance IMO.   Against all odds, loosing the guys we did, behind in the standings like we were, playing so many youngsters, so many injuries.  Then when we get to crunch time, Howard was outstanding, the defense picked it up, lame ducks like Franzen starting to perform, Z took over, and this team got it done down the stretch, with every game being a must win, and they did it, they pulled it off and got themselves into the playoffs.  No help from anyone but themselves.   Very impressive.  Proud to be a Wings fan today.

This is a great matchup for the Wings, we know we can beat them, we have Franzen and Flip finally playing good hockey, this is a great great matchup, Wings in 5, Bank It, I said time and time again we'd  make it into the playoffs, and now I'm telling you we will beat the Duckies.
