Who would have figured the Detroit Red Wings would be packing up this morning, an almost meek five-game victim of the Nashville Predators?
You’re in mourning if you loaded your playoff pool with players from the Hockeytown, which this morning is Summertown.
The Predators finished off Detroit Friday with a 2-1 win, Detroit native David Legwand scoring the game-winner 13 seconds into the third period.
In Pittsburgh, meanwhile the Penguins’ 3-2 win over Philadelphia has pushed their Eastern Confererence quarterfinal to a sixth game, scheduled for 12 noon Sunday.
And there’s a ton of hockey on the schedule today/tonight, starting with Washington at Boston at 3 p.m. ET.
