DETROIT VS PHOENIX:
With a run of 20 straight playoff appearances, and 4 recent Stanley Cup championships, the Wings are a dynasty. As long as they can avoid devastating injuries, and get decent goalkeeping from Jimmy Howard, they are always a threat to win the Cup. There is no team that they can’t beat. Henrik Zetterberg is currently sidelined with a left knee injury, and it is not yet known, when he will be available. Detroit coach Mike Babcock is one of the best in the business, as his track record indicates. Coyotes bench boss, Dave Tippett, is highly respected throughout the NHL, and is known to be a brilliant strategist, who inspires his athletes with his insights and knowledge of the game, that amazes even the very experienced veterans.
Wings win in 6.
