The Detroit Red Wings and their team leader, Steve Yzerman, have been sensational this season, compiling the NHL's best record.But they had it last season, too, and were swept in the Stanley Cup finals by the New Jersey Devils.Listen to Yzerman, a 13-year Detroit veteran, and it is apparent that loss still stings. The team hasn't discussed its disappointment in last year's finals "a whole lot," he said, choosing instead simply to move on.When he is asked why this team, which is four points ahead of last season's pace, can be trusted to maintain the performance in the postseason, he becomes just a little defensive.

Ask anyone in Montreal and you'll be told, "Hockey is not a sport; it's our religion." And the Montreal Canadiens have been close to all-powerful for the past 24 years. In all that time, with good teams and bad teams, the Canadiens didn't miss the playoffs.But the Canadiens are in danger of missing the NHL playoffs this year. With seven games left in their season, they are three points from tying for the last playoff spot."Fans will always be upset that the Canadiens may not make the playoffs," said Marc DeFoy, who has covered the Canadiens for the Journal de Montreal for the past 11 years.
