The Red Wings NEED to make the playoffs The Knee Jerks Podcast - Eno, Nick and Big Al

    • Sports

Detroit sports podcasters Greg Eno, Big Al Beaton and Nick Milanovich are The Knee Jerks!
Nick is off this week, so it's an old school show with Greg and Big Al talking all things Detroit sports. 
Topics include: 
After a horrific March, the Red Wings find themselves in dogfight with 3 other teams for the final wild card.
If the season ended today, the Red Wings would be the playoff 8 seed.  This franchise NEEDS to make the playoffs.
The Wings have enough offense to win the wild card. Can't say the same about the defense and goal tending. It was a question mark going into the season, and remains that way.
If Alex Lyon or James Reimer could stand on their head in goal for a few games, it would help the Wings playoff chances immensely.
Want to sell Patrick Kane on signing a new contract with Detroit? Best way to do so is make the damn post season. 
A weird Pistons season got weirder thanks to journeyman guard Malachi Flynn. It's more than likely Flynn and his career 5.2 PPG won't be a Piston next season. But he managed to have a game for the ages versus the Hawks - 50 points on 18/25 shooting. Of course, the Pistons lost. Of course, Flynn was 0/12 from the floor in his next game. 
Chauncey Billups, the Pistons "Mr. Big Shot," was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame, joining Ben Wallace. The Going to Work Pistons were supposedly built with no stars, but ended up with two hall of fame players.
The old baseball saying says, "You can't win a championship in April, but you can lose it." After years of being out of contention by Memorial Day (or to be blunt, by May 1) due to horrible starts, the Tigers got off to their fastest start in years at 6-1. They have come back down to earth somewhat, but their pitching has been encouraging. The bats, on the other hand...
We also play Greg's Birthday Game!
