Quenneville has never beaten the Wings in a playoff series as a head coach

Inside the numbers

This is the 16th playoff series between Detroit and Chicago. On nine other occasions, the team that won the series advanced to the Cup final, but lost.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville has never beaten the Wings in a playoff series as a head coach. The Wings advanced to the Cup final every year after beating Quenneville’s team, winning every time except for 2009, when the Wings lost in seven to Pittsburgh.

Henrik Zetterberg is now tied for third all-time in franchise playoff goal-scoring (54) with Nicklas Lidstrom. Steve Yzerman (70) and Gordie Howe (67) top the list.
