    Was just looking at the NHL standings and something jumped out at me.

    Out of 30 teams, the longest winning streak is 2 games and a 3 game losing streak is the most. That's a pretty tight grouping and it makes it seem really random.

    Here are the streaks:
    Eastern Conference-
    + 2 (3 teams)
    + 1 (4 teams)
    -1 (6 teams)
    -2 (2 teams)

    Western Conference-
    + 2 (3 teams)
    + 1 (6 teams)
    -1 (3 teams)
    -2 (1 teams)
    -3 (2 teams)


    In AL MLB, 13 out of 15 teams have +1 or -1 streaks with the other 2 teams at only 2.


    Parity.

    Just need one more pt and they are, but no need to sweat it, go for two, grab the 7th spot and face the Ducks in the first round.

    The way the Wings have been playing the last 3 games is exactly the type of play that rises up in the playoffs.
    If the Wings get in, they'll wreck some shop!

    AS a 7th or 8th seed, The Wings need to do what lower seeds have done to them the last 10 years!!!

    Looks like the Wings are ascending the peak at the right time....4 wins in a row as if it were a game seven. Hmm, can I really afford go down to the Pond and see them?? Better just watch it on the tube and be satisfied.

    GO WINGS!!

    GOALLLLL! The Red Wings even the series at a game a piece as they score 81 seconds into the OT after blowing a 4-1 lead with 12 mins left in the 3rd period.

    The Ducks put the pressure Jimmy Howard during the last 11 mins of regulation the Ducksscored the tying goal abotu the same time the Tigers who were also in OT (extra innings) were scoring the go ahead and potential winning run on a hit by Don Kelly.

    The Ducks got what the Ducks announcers called a controversial penalty with less than 40 seconds in regulation and the Red Wings use that PP advantage to score the winning goal in OT on a point blank goal by Filppula

    I would have been ticked if I stayed up until 1am to see them lose....

    Who knew the Tigers game would still be going almost 5 hours, as well?
