Red Wings to Face Avalance in Second Round

With San Jose's defeat of Calgary in Game Seven of their first round series, the Red Wings' second round opponent will be the Colorado Avalanche. The series schedule has been added to DH.N's schedule page.

Detroit and Colorado have faced each other five times in the playoffs, with the Avs owning a 3-2 lead, having won both matchups that did not occur in the Western Conference Finals.

The last time the two teams met in the postseason was 2002, when the Red Wings rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the series to win in seven games, with Dominik Hasek blanking Colorado in Game Six and Game Seven.

The Red Wings ran the table against the Avalanche this season, winning all four games. All of those games were played before Colorado reacquired Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote.

Looks like I'm going to be missing game 1, as I have to get a bus (instead of a train <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" /> ) a few hours after the game finishes. And I'll miss game 2 as well, as I'll be back after the game finishes. Why does my sister have to have her birthday on such an inconvenient date? <img src="http://forums.detroithockey.net/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />
