Thread: 25-Year Playoff Run Ends

  1. 25-Year Playoff Run Ends

    It began in 1991 and featured four Stanley Cup championships, six Cup finals appearances, a half-dozen Presidents' Trophies, 33 playoff series victories and 190 playoff wins.

    Made the NHL playoffs.
    25.

    Seasons.

    Twenty.

    Stevie Y, Nicklas Lidstrom, Brendan Shanahan, Mike Vernon, Chris Osgood, The Russian Five, Kris Draper, Pavel Datsyuk, Hank Zetterberg... i could go on, but I'll leave you with Darren McCarty kicking the ever-loving **** out of Claude Lemieux and providing the final spark that set the Wings up for their first title run during thig this 25-year run:

    But that still nevertheless is a great run, even though technically they didn't make the playoffs in 2004-2005 (but then again, nobody did because the whole season was cancelled).
