    7 games left including tonight. Only four points out of the 5th spot, so I figure a if they can get 6 to 8 points they maybe able squeeze into 7th or 8th spot.

    The only problem if they play the Blackhawks in the first round, it might be 4 and out.

    Okay, princess of pessimism. The Wings are 1 point out of the last playoff spot (with a game in hand) and 4 games still remaining. You have to believe. Don't give up on your hometown team. Show some faith. Have some pride.

    Well if they don't make it to the playoffs, it will be the first time since 1990. I can probably live with that I guess, but I like most Wing fans would like them to make it just to keep the streak going.

    The issue I have is that so far no one from ESPN nor possibly even the NHL network has made a big deal out if the Wings make the playoffs of not.

    I mean ESPN practically wished, prayed, and analyzed, the Lakers every move/game from January until last Friday willing them into the playoffs as if the NBA playoffs could not function without them being a part of it. How do you explain the team with the 5th worst record in the playoffs getting the prime time ABC coverage game on Sunday and everyone else was regulated to ESPN or TNT? Because if the Lakers go out early they want them on ABC at least once. Steve Nash and World Peace get a chance to rest and recover as they don't have to play in again until Wednesday.

    :focus: GO WINGS!!!

    TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT ESPN:

    1. Their asskissin love for Micheal Jordan and Kobe Bryant
    2. Pitiful east coast bias : Jets, Yanks, Knix, Sox AllDay-All the time
    3. The biggest blowhard in sports history: BOOMER!
    4. ESPN.com's INsider where they charge you per month to read what you will eventually hear on TV
    5. Jalen Rose and their AWFUL NBA studio crew
    6. How they take the most average of GM's, players or coaches and make them 'expert' analysts
    7. How they made Sportscenter a TV show from a once credited highlight show
    8. Their 365day love for the NFL
    9. Their disbanding NHL coverage with the exception of Granddaddy Mullettt's analysis
    10. Not enough Tim Kurtjan

    Great list!! I agree wholeheartedly with # 2, 4, 5, 6 and 8. Especially 6. Since they are in cohoots with ABC, we have to put up with their dual crew. We know that Magic bleeds purple and gold (and green and white), but why does Mike Wilbon love the Lakers so much? Bill Simmons hates them as does Jalen I think.

    The issue I have is why did ABC have to retweet all of Kobe's tweets? The guy was not even in the building and his name was mentioned so many times I thought he was out on the floor running with the rest of the Lakers

    2 pts down, need 4 to go guarantee their 22nd straight year making the play offs. A 3-1 win vs the Kings tonight and all they have to do is win out and they are in as they hold a one point lead over the Blue Jackets with both teams having two games to go.
