Now The Test Starts

from Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Tribune,

The Red Wings won the Wrigley game 6-4, and they looked like men playing against boys. But the boys have matured. They’re different than they were in January. They’re better and tougher. They won the last two meetings between the two teams after losing four straight….

Let’s not kid anyone. The Red Wings are the defending champions. They’re experienced, and they’ve seen everything there is to see. They rarely make mistakes. And they’re tough too.

Other than that, the Hawks have the Red Wings right where they want them.

But Detroit looked tired at the end of its seven-game series Thursday night against Anaheim.

The Hawks’ legs might be a little fresher.

The Red Wings don’t appear too concerned about it.
