07:13 AM ET 04.22 | Will it happen on this team's watch, the end of The Streak? Mike Babcock and Henrik Zetterberg want to ensure the Detroit Red Wings' 21-season playoff streak does not end under their watch as coach and captain. ... With four games remaining, this is the closest the Red Wings have been to missing the playoff since 1990, the last year they did not qualify. The Red Wings have struggled down the stretch (3-5-3), primarily due to their difficulty scoring (19 goals in their past 11 games). Still, a playoff spot is theirs for the taking. If they win out, they're in. If they don't win out, they'll need some help. The Red Wings are tied with Dallas for ninth place in the Western Conference with 48 points, and Detroit has a game in hand.

Most of the credit does go to me.I guess Burke gets a sliver of it tho. That's usually enough praise for him to drink to.

any day of the week with a "Y" in it is also

As I sat at Saturday's game which was dominated by Detroit and they weren't scoring, I said to Prodigal Daughter that Canucks were gonna win in the shootout.

And they did.
