Detroit Red Wings Playoff TicketsThe Detroit Red Wings, who play in "Hockeytown, USA," has a long, rich history that intertwines with the development of the NHL itself. Detroit began as an expansion franchise known as the Cougars in 1926. Since changing the name to the Red Wings, the franchise has won 11 Stanley Cups, which is the third most of all time. Detroit won its first Stanley Cup championships in 1936 and 1937. The team established a true dynasty in the 1950s with Gordie Howe, Terry Sawchuk and other Hall of Famers. This team won four Stanley Cups in six years. In the 1960s, the team made it to the Stanley Cup Finals several times but couldn’t break through against Toronto and Montreal. Following a rare down period in the 1970s and 1980s, Detroit returned to Stanley Cup glory in 1997 and 1998 under legendary head coach Scotty Bowman. The franchise won two more championships in 2002 and 2008.

However, the team didn't make the playoffs. Center Dylan Larkin led all Red Wings scorers with 73 points, 41 assists and 32 goals.
What are the top moments in Red Wings' playoff history?The Red Wings' history is filled with memorable moments of great hockey. In 1954, Detroit clinched the title with a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory against the Montreal Canadiens in the seventh game of the series. In the 1990s and 2000s, the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche ignited a fierce rivalry that often determined the Stanley Cup champion. Though Detroit lost to Colorado in the 1996 Western Conference Finals, the team would avenge the loss in the exact same round a year later, only months after a bloody regular season brawl between the teams. Colorado triumphed again in the 1999 and 2000 playoffs, but Detroit pulled out a thrilling game seven victory on its way to the Stanley Cup championship in 2002. Detroit won the Stanley Cup again after beating Colorado in the 2008 Western Conference Semifinals.

What is the format of the NHL playoffs?The NHL playoffs features 16 teams, eight from each conference. The top three teams in each division automatically qualify for the top 12 spots. The remaining wild card spots are given to the next two highest finishers in each conference, regardless of division. Those two teams could come from the same division, leaving the other division without a wild card team, or they could be split among the two divisions. In the first round, the two division winners will play against the two wild card teams. The second and third teams from each division will also face off against each other. Each series is a best-of-seven, meaning that the first to get to four wins advances. In the first two rounds, home advantage goes to the team with the better division or conference standing. However, in the last two rounds, it is given to the team with the better regular season record.
