Wings Are Now A Dangerous Team

from CSNNE,

It shouldn't come as a huge surprise that the Red Wings snapped the Bruins 9-game road win streak and 16-game points streak....

Mike Felger and Tony Amonte discussed on CSNNE's Postgame Live.

"Detroit is a dangerous team because they are a quick, skilled team," Felger said. "And you saw Gustav Nyquist on that game-winning goal in the third period just blow by [Zdeno] Chara like he was literally cemented into the ice. And that's something you're going to have to deal with in two weeks if that's the team."

Amonte agrees that by the time the playoffs roll around, Detroit will be even stronger.

"They all play with a European mentality . . . they got a great mix of European guys, they play a wide open style," Amonte said. "They've struggled this year because of all the injuries, but you're right they could be very dangerous when [Henrk] Zetterberg gets back and [Pavel] Datsuk gets back. They're going to be a dangerous team."

Also, after last night's games, the Wings now have a 93.7% chance of making the playoffs according to SportsClubStats.

When Pav and E are back, I might concede the point.

Actually, my first thought was Paul was trying to feed off of the enormous popularity of The Link Goes To Himself by stealing his signature line.  cheese

Believe me, no intent on my part, just using part of the story.

Nice to see Tony Amonte is clocking in at approximately twice his playing weight. Too many steak dinners, Tony.

Actually, he was pretty awful on camera. Did he recently get that gig?

Remember 2 or 3 weeks ago when their chances were something like 37%???!!!?! 

It’s not a guarantee yet, but I like the way we’re trending.
