“I think Detroit’s biggest loss of the series was probably Game Six, Monday at Home—Memorial Day—that was the game they really needed to close them out. Once they let it get back to Game Seven back in Chicago, I think the series looked pretty much on the line for them.”

—Helene St. James, Red Wing Reporter, Detroit Free Press
