I am excited for the upcoming Red Wings playoff battles, but if I have learned a thing or two about Detroit sports, it is do not get your expectations too high for the Wings come playoff time (more as of late) and never expect the Lions to win a game, ever.
It is impressive the Wings have been to the playoffs for sixteen consecutive seasons and have won the Western Conference the past three seasons (or something like that.)
The Wings have an amazing organization. But with pro hockey, you wait and wait for the playoffs, and then you get all excited and then your team loses in the first round. Plus, twice in the past three seasons they have lost as the #1 seed to the #8 seed, once getting swept in four games. That was pain. Like being a Lions fan pain.
