Paul here for George.
You know by now the Wings will travel to Nashville to open up the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Pavel Datsyuk salvaged a point for the Wings late in the 3rd period to send the game to OT and allowed the Wings to gain a point which assured them of the 5th seed.
I look at it this way, the point just saved the Wings at least 8 hours of travel time during the first round, so that should help a veteran team
Now, the Wings need to find their game or else the only flight they will be taking in the playoffs will be to Nashville.
Watch the Datsyuk goal plus the Wings’ first goal by Johan Franzen below…

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
