The piece you're overlooking is momentum, and how important it is in the playoffs. It's a lot easier to build it if the first two games are under favorable circumstances. I think there's some absurd statistic about how often the team that wins game 1 goes on to win the series.
Let's look at the momentum of the teams heading in. The Wings haven't won in regulation since beating the Jackets .... 2-3-0 with both wins in a shootout since then. We're 3-2-0 in our last five with two of three wins in regulation (including one against the Wings). We're 5-2-0 in our last seven, Wings 4-3-0 ... who had a six game winless streak before that ... 4 wins in their last 13 games. Not quite heading down the stretch with any momentum.
