With round one in the bag and the Phoenix Coyotes out of the way, the Red Wings will have a nice long break to rest some of their key players.

With up to eight days of break, depending on how the rest of the quarterfinals pan out, the Red Wings have some time to look ahead at potential round two match-ups and how they plan to extend their Stanley Cup run.

While it may have been grueling with Coyote captain, Shane Doan, throwing a hit every time a winged wheel would touch the puck, it sure wasn't long going only four games, all ending in regulation.
