OT: Red Wings playoff streak officially over

Submitted by Lionsfan on March 28th, 2017 at 10:38 PM

With a 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes tonight, and the Leafs and Bruins both winning, for the first time since 1990, the Detroit Red Wings will not be playing postseason hockey

 

Detroit's streak of 25 consecutive trips to the #StanleyCup Playoffs has officially ended; it ties the 3rd-longest such run in NHL history.

While I wish we could have broken Boston's 29 year record, this was a good streak. Unlike the Blues and Blackhawks during their streak, we actually won the Stanley Cup, and unlike the Bruins, we did it over multiple decades of our streak
