Misconduct

Pregame: Red Wings @ Bruins - Game 1 - 4/18

Every other series has already kicked off and today it's finally time for the Red Wings to begin their first round matchup with the Bruins.

When I did my first round predictions I deliberately left off this series and I'm not going to change that here.

Jimmy Howard can steal this series. Tuukka Rask can shut the Red Wings down. The Wings have solved the Bruins more often than the Bruins have solved them this season. Boston was the league's best team in the regular season, though, so there's no reason to think they can't turn it around.

Time to get these games going and see how things go.

Game time is 7:30 PM on FSD and NBCSN.

As Tweeted earlier this week, Detroit is 80-56 all-time in Friday playoff games. That drops to 15-11 when it's Game One of a series and all the way down to 3-8 when it's a road game.

Wings survived early, got some momentum with the power play, Bruins came back on at the end. Not carrying the play by any means.

Significantly better period than the first thus far. #obvious

1st per: Wings just surviving until late power play gives momentum. 2nd per: Wings controlling until late power play kills momentum

Awesome shift by Helm.

So glad this game was on local Fox...pretty sure if I'd watched the national broadcast, Wings would have lost....

Pretty sure my brain is broken still.

I really hope the league makes Lucic sit for a game or two, he's such a dirtbag. Theres no way he should be getting off free for crap like that.

$5000 fine. As I just Tweeted, it will cost me a higher percentage of my annual salary to go to Game Three than it will cost Lucic of his to have speared DeKeyser.

Once again, the league gets it wrong.
