Red Wings Back To Playoffs This Season? ‘We Have A Team That Can Do It’ | 97.1 The Ticket

“We’re trying to get back into the playoffs, and I think we have a team that can do it. It’s just about being consistent every night. We see flashes throughout the season at some points and then at other points, for whatever reason, we don’t have it. For us to get back into the playoffs, we’re going to have to be at the top of our game every night.”

The above quote is from Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser. I love his optimism. You want the team to be thinking positive and believing that they can compete and make the playoffs. That’s great. Of course, I personally don’t think this Wings team will make the playoffs, but I would happily be wrong.
