Series Backstory
The hockey commentariat all think the Sharks-Wings series is going to be a good one, and most think the Sharks will win in 6 or 7 games. The Wings are dealing with injuries to Tomas Holmstrom, their tough, net-crashing shot-tipper, and D-man Frank Lebda, who was sucker- punched by Daymond Langkow in round 1, and is suffering from post- concussion symptoms. The Sharks are, miraculously, injury-free right now, although Jonathan Cheechoo isn't 100% after the knee-injury from Game 1 of the Nashville series.
