Let’s get it. All day. That’s what we do.
In their biggest game of the year, the Wings clutched up, didn’t back down, played inspired, and only lost by a mere one goal.
Luckily, the Bruins were hilarious for their final two periods and got smoked by the eliminated (like all Canadian teams) Senators. Also, nobody cares if most players are from Canada. Their teams are very bad.
The results give the Red Wings a postseason birth for the 25th consecutive year. THE 25th CONSECUTIVE YEAR. The next most in the NHL is only 10. MoTown, all day. The last time the Wings didn’t make the playoffs I was half a sperm and half an egg (-3 years old).
Never been happier with a Red Wings loss. Just get in, baby.
Now we face the free-falling Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round for the second-straight season. Last year the Wings choked away a 3-2 series lead and lost to the eventual Eastern Conference Champion. Not gonna happen this year. Wings in 7. ZERO pressure.
Either way, it will be nice to see more octopuses fly onto the Joe Lewis ice in April. By the way, it’s a tradition that started in 1952 to signify the 8 playoff wins it used to take to win the cup. Now it’s 16, so two octopuses should suffice.
It’s playoff time, Detroit. This is what we do.
