Detroit Red Wings: Healthy and Angry Now, So the West Beware

March 8th, 2010 by Greg Eno Leave a reply »
No one knows where the Red Wings will finish in the conference standings, but I can assure you that it will be in the top eight, albeit in the bottom half of those eight.

Which means one of the upper seeds will draw them in the first round of the playoffs.

May the hockey gods have mercy on that poor team’s soul.

Enough fooling around now. All you other teams in the Western Conference, you’ve had your fun. You picked on the Red Wings when they had one hockey gloved hand tied behind their backs. But now they’ve broken free from their shackles and you’d all better run.

The Red Wings blitzed the mighty (for now) Chicago Blackhawks with a five-goal second period on Sunday in the Windy City, and they made it look ridiculously easy.

This is the Red Wings team that started the season, pretty much, but not the one that played together between games three and 60. Injuries made sure of that.

But this group of 18 skaters, plus surprise rookie goalie Jimmy Howard, is the team that all those Western foes have been fortunate enough to avoid.

Until now.
