DETROIT (WWJ) – While the reality of the Red Wings’ season ending loss in Game 7 of the series against the San Jose Sharks sets in, we watch the Wings clear out lockers rather than prepare for the next round in the NHL Conference finals.

There is still one strong Detroit Red Wing connection to the finals; Steve Yzerman. While the Wings have been eliminated, all hockey attention can now be paid to the Eastern Conference finals.

The former Red Wing and current General Manager Steve Yzerman’s Tampa Bay Lightning invade the Garden to take on the Boston Bruins in their best of seven series.

This is the first time since 1992 that the Bruins are in the conference finals, while the Lightning are back for the first time since winning the Cup- in 2004.

The puck drops Saturday at 8 p.m. in Boston.
