Complete Schedule & Bracket | Blog: Phoenix-Detroit

Series MVP: Henrik Zetterberg, LW, Detroit Red Wings

Zetterberg may not have had the best regular season by his own standards, but he's making up for it this postseason. The winger recorded a team-leading six goals and 11 points in Detroit's Conference Quarterfinals win over the Phoenix Coyotes. He registered four multiple-point games, including a hat trick in Game 2 and a three-assist effort in Game 7. Zetterberg also led Detroit with two game-winning goals, notched in Games 2 and 4.

Expert Picks

Erin Brown: Detroit in 6: The playoff-tested Wings know intangibles could kill if this one gets to Game 7.
Mike Hurcomb: Detroit in 5: Red Wings' postseason experience will overwhelm surprising Coyotes.
Dennis Dodd: Detroit in 6: The Red Wings won't get there unless Jimmy Howard comes up big in goal.
