Red Wings Bounced


The NHL has a bit of dilemma. Should it be happy with the quality play and stunning upsets that have taken place in the first round of the playoffs or disappointed that its two biggest market teams embarrassed themselves?

In the wake of the New York Rangers debacle, Detroit was finished off by Edmonton last night, blowing a 2-0 third period lead to become the seventh top seed to be eliminated by an eight seed since 1994.

For the Red Wings, the NHL’s point leaders, this marks the third straight playoffs that they have been knocked out in of the first two rounds.

Maybe it’s a good sign that there is a ton of parity in the league, but I highly doubt Gary Bettman was rooting for a Carolina/Edmonton type Stanley Cup Finals.

And In Edmonton – Off Wing, they know more about hockey than me.
