Wings One Point Away from Extending Historic Playoff Streak
"Great moments... are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game..." - Herb Brooks in Miracle
Tonight, the Red Wings will look to extend their own miracle run, the jaw-dropping playoff streak which could improve to 22 in the coming hours, when they take on the Dallas Stars in The Lone Star State. A number of scenarios would put the Red Wings in the postseason tonight, but the easiest one is to walk away with at least one point tonight against a Dallas team that has suddenly come down to Earth after a recent winning streak. Nevertheless, the red hot Wings will no doubt have a tough game to play against a Stars team hoping to play spoiler and shine in their season's curtain call. While Detroit has a rich history of coming up big in crunch time, it all comes down to these three periods at American Airlines Center.
