Round 2

vs.
Well, hockey fans, we have made it to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Wasn't really sure we would get there, based on how the Red Wings played at the end of the season, but very glad to see it happened. In other hockey news, the Pittsburgh Penguins have also raced into Round 2 of the Playoffs. Will these two teams meet up in the finals? I know that my nails will be bitten off in anticipation. Check out the Red Wings and Penguins websites for updates and tickets! Go Peng-wings! (I do have divided loyalites, after all!)

Let's go Wings!

Well, hockey fans, it is that time of year once again — the Stanley Cup Playoffs! Now, although our Wings had us in a state of nail-biting curiosity to see if they were even going to make the playoffs, we can breathe a sigh of relief, that they are here to play another day. While you are eagerly waiting for the next game in the series, check out one of our great hockey books or DVD's to keep you in the know until the buzzer sounds and the next game begins!
