DUCKS V WINGS 2013 PLAYOFFS

SERIES BEGINS: TUESDAY 30TH APRIL 2013

GAME 1 PUCK DROP: 10:30PM ET (3:30AM GMT)

HOW WILL IT GO DOWN? This should be an extremely interesting match-up.  A Ducks roster filled with good players have great years, with a good helping of luck to get them where they are, pitted against an experienced Detroit team with a depleted defence unit but still plenty of talent all over the roster.  The Ducks look to be a better team in every area highlighted above, plus have more offensive threats – though their players don’t have the versatility of guys like Datsyuk or Zetterberg.  Detroit also finished the season very slightly better than the Ducks did.  This one will be a battle I think, and it could go down to the wire.

PREDICTION: This one will go to 7 games I think, and despite what I said in my Ducks write-up, I could see them taking this if their luck continues.  Something tells me that the offensive talent on the Ducks will be able to overcome Detroit’s puck possession system.
