Red Wings are done, hoping Lidstrom isn't finished @NHL

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings are done and the questions have already started.

Detroit's 20th straight postseason ended Thursday night in San Jose, eliminated by the Sharks in the second round for the second straight year.

The Red Wings became the eighth team to force a Game 7 after going down 3-0, but couldn't become the fourth franchise in NHL history to win such a series. They flew home Friday morning.

Defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom says he plans to take his time before deciding whether to return for a 20th season in Detroit. Red Wings forward and fellow Swede Henrik Zetterberg says Lidstrom still has a lot of hockey left to play.
