Wings clinch 20th straight playoff spot
DETROIT -- The Red Wings officially clinched their 20th consecutive post-season berth in northern Tennessee earlier today, earning two points in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Nashville Predators. Along with the San Jose Sharks, Detroit is now one of only two NHL teams to have qualified for the playoffs every year since the league negotiated a new collective bargaining agreement with the player’s association in 2005. 
 
Today’s road win also secures the Red Wings their 11th straight 100-point season, a streak which extends their own NHL record. The previous mark of eight seasons was set by the Montreal Canadiens from 1974-75 through 1981-82.
 
Detroit’s quest for the 12th Stanley Cup in franchise history will begin later this month versus a to-be-determined opponent. Tickets for the first three home games of the Red Wings’ opening round series are on sale now at the JLA Box Office (313-396-7575) as well as at all Ticketmaster locations, including The Hockeytown Café in Detroit and Hockeytown Authentics in Troy.  Tickets can also be obtained by logging on to DetroitRedWings.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.
