    That is just a ridiculous number. How can a team make the playoffs 23 freakin' years in a row? Awesome franchise. We are lucky!

    St. Louis made it 20 straight times and got blown out 20 straight times. Or very close to that.
    And Wings did it to them maybe 10 times ! It was horrible for ST.Louis fan.

    You are right, they made the playoffs 25 straight years (1980 through 2004). All total, they had 38 trips to the playoffs and zero Stanley Cup titles.

    Well, it helps that tons of teams make the playoffs in the NHL, but you make a good point here.

    These have all been changing over the years, but currently the percentage of teams that make the playoffs:

    NBA: 53.3% (16 out of 30)
    NHL: 53.3% (16 out of 30)
    NFL: 37.5% (12 out of 32)
    MLB: 33.3% (10 out of 30)

    I like MLB the best. Would love for it to go back to 8. More teams = more money (for many)

    Hoping and praying for a Red Wings upset against the Bruins. I want to wear my Yzerman jersey around New England for a week just to see how many dirty looks and middle fingers I get. This will help alleviate some of the sting from the Tigers losing to the Red Sux in the ALCS.

    One would tend to agree with you about being very lucky. But it all balances out when you factor in the Lions.

    Maybe carjacked, too, since I have little Red Wings flags that attach to the top of my car windows. Pull those out on special occasions. No. 8 seed beating No. 1 would qualify.

    Great game. No score after two. They need to steal this one.
