If you are a Red Wings fan like I am, it felt good to get back into playoff mode! The Red Wings' extended their playoff run to twenty straight years with a 4-2 win last night at home against the Phoenix Coyotes in the opening game of the series. Brian Rafalski scored the winning goal, and Jimmy Howard was strong between the pipes for the Wings, especially in the first period. The best of seven series resumes on Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena.
