The Detroit Red Wings fell to the Nashville Predators in five games in the first round of the playoffs.  They were the first playoff team to be sent home this season.  It is a bad loss for a team that six weeks ago led the league.

When early playoff losses occur, there is a tendency for people to panic and change everything.  But this is still a very good team with loads of talent.  However, they do need to make some changes in the offseason.
