The Detroit Red Wings' surprising playoff run came to a painful end last week with a Game 7 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Now, what's next for the boys from Hockeytown?
We take a look at what went wrong late in that series with Chicago, what went right as the Wings nearly pulled off a second straight upset and look ahead to a potentially very busy offseason.

The Detroit Red Wings' chances at a division title appear to be gone already, thanks to Chicago's record-setting start. But does Detroit have enough to keep its playoff streak alive?
Co-hosts Chris Burke and Rob Starrs discuss that topic, plus turn their attention to Lakeland for a little Tigers chatter.

Detroit Red Wings Fan Interview. With a tough series again the Chicago Blackhawks, the Red Wings season ends in the 7th game of the series. Now to pack up and get ready to move to the Eastern Conference, what are the fans doing with this offseason?
2 Detroit Lions players (Golden Tate III and Matthew Stafford) make the Pro Bowl. How did they do individually? And no, I won't waste time talking about the football deflations with the New England Patriots, Marshall Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks, or Super Bowl XLIX, which starts next week.
The Red Wings have won 5 in a row, but they should still cut ties with defenseman Jonathan Ericsson. He has played a heck of a lot worse than everyone else on this roster, and he's still a virus the way I see it. I explained it on my own website blog a few days ago. And no, I won't talk much about the NHL All-Star Game, especially considering the fact that there were no Red Wings players in it, although I would've preferred Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar to be there.
The Pistons lose Brandon Jennings, which is a devastating blow, but that is NOT their biggest problem. What IS their biggest problem is their defense, and that's been their biggest problem all season. They've given up over 100 points per game all season thus far. They need to stop worrying so much about Brandon Jennings and just play tougher defense.
Why the Spartans and Wolverines will both still make the NCAA Tournament in 2015. Michigan State is 13-7, and Michigan is 12-8. Neither of them will win either of the 2015 Big Ten titles (regular season or tournament)
The Tigers lose Max Scherzer to the Washington Nationals on a 7-year, $210 million contract, which very well decreases their chances of winning the World Series in 2015, but Justin Verlander is getting "better than ever".

The Big Ten and MAC Conference schedules gets underway in college basketball.
Justin Verlander is struggling, Joe Nathan can't get anyone out, and the lineup has had its ups and downs. With their AL Central lead dwindling, are the Detroit Tigers in serious trouble of dropping from contention?
We'll touch on that, plus the upcoming NHL free-agency period. Should the Detroit Red Wings chase any high-priced talent? Which of their own guys do they need to bring back? And with the Stanley Cup Finals close to wrapping up, do the Wings have the pieces in place to win another title in the near future?
The Red Wings continue their 6-game road trip in Edmonton against the Oilers, in Calgary against the Flames, and in Washington against the Capitals.

The Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Central Michigan Chippewas, Western Michigan Broncos, and Eastern Michigan Eagles continue college basketball conference play. An easy road ahead for the green and white and the maize and blue. U-M and MSU should be able to handle their opponents well.
The Red Wings finish their 6-game road trip at Buffalo with the Sabres and in St. Louis with the Blues, and then they return home to face the Nashville Predators. How much ice time can Petr Mrazek handle while Jimmy Howard favors his slight groin tear on the injured reserve? What can Teemu Pulkkinen do on the ice, while Johan Franzen is also injured? Can the Wings also finally consider calling up Anthony Mantha from the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins?
Can the Pistons keep their ball rolling after their epic matchup with the Raptors in Toronto? They have the New Orleans Pelicans, Indiana Pacers, and Philadelphia 76ers all on hand.

The Tigers avoid arbitration with David Price and sign him to a 1-year deal worth $19.75 million. However, they are legitimately about to lose Max Scherzer to the Nationals.
Did the Lions beat the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field for the first time since 1991 and clinch the NFC North Division Championship, home-field advantage, and a first-round bye?
