Pronger Seeing Red

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
Nobody wants to bend, fold and mutilate the Detroit Red Wings in a Stanley Cup playoff series more than Christopher R. Pronger. This is the 10th consecutive season he's made it into the playoffs. Half of them have involved series against the Detroit Red Wings. He's never won one. "I've had success everywhere else but in the playoffs,'' said Pronger. He came closest on his first try. "Detroit won in Game 7 in double overtime. That was my first taste of the playoffs. Losing in Game 7 in double overtime.'' Steve Yzerman scored the series winner. A year later the Red Wings won four games to two. It was a six-game series in 1998 and a five-game series in 2002. Three of those four years the Red Wings went on to win the Stanley Cup. "They always found a way to win,'' he said.
