It’s the longest active streak in the four major sports: 23 years in a row Detroit has made the NHL playoffs.
Detroit outplayed the Penguins in Pittsburgh, but they fell 4-3 in a shootout.
We led 1-0, then they got a cheap penalty and scored. We led 2-1, but they got a power play (cheap?) and scored.
Down 3-2, Detroit rallied in the waning minutes to force overtime.
Our goalie Gustavsson made some nice saves, stopping 2/3 in the shoot out. Unluckily, they stopped all three of ours, including a lucky rolling stop after Old Man Alfredsson juked their goalie good.
The point puts in the playoffs, though.
