Detroit Red Wings vs. Anaheim Ducks Series Schedule, Preview and Prediction

With just a few games left in the 2013 NHL season, many Detroit Red Wings fans had feared the 21-year playoff streak was going to come to an end. 

Instead, the Red Wings won four in a row to secure the seventh seed in the Western Conference and a first-round series with the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks, who finished 13th in the West last season, have flourished this year under Bruce Boudreau finishing third overall in the NHL. Meanwhile, the Red Wings have dealt with a number of injuries and despite inconsistent play, they could still be a threat in the postseason.

As for the playoff history between the two clubs, they've met five times, with the Red Wings holding a 3-2 edge in series wins. Their most recent meeting came in 2009, when the Red Wings beat the Ducks in seven games in the conference semifinals.

Expect similar excitement in this series, which features a number of highly skilled offensive stars.
