Real Life

The Red Wings had a very good weekend with two tough wins. However, the teams in front of Detroit in the East also played well. But at least the Red Wings playoff percentage is going in the right direction with a jump from 1.1 to 2.8. If you want to check out some playoff percentage information for the Wings here it is.

Teams to keep an eye on

Carolina and Florida are moving up the standings with win streaks and are serious contenders for the Wild Card and in Florida’s case the Atlantic.

Go Western Conference! It is a week dominated by East vs. West games. Makes knowing who to root for very simple.
