Good history

The last time that the Red Wings led a playoff series 3-2 and wound up being eliminated was in the first round of 1991. Detroit led St. Louis, 3-1, before losing the final three games of the series.
The last time that Detroit won three games in a series and didn't win the series was in 1994 when the San Jose Shark bounced the Red Wings in the first round.
Since 1994, the Red Wings have had three wins in 22 series and won each of those. The Since 1994, Red Wings are 22-6 in games following their third win in a series.
More impressively, the Red Wings are 10-0 in games following their third win in a series since the 1998 Stanley Cup final. The last game that the Red Wings lost when they had three wins in a series was Game 5 in Dallas in the 1998 Western Conference final -- a 3-2 overtime loss in which Jamie Langenbrunner scored from long range at 0:46 of overtime. Chris Osgood shut out the Stars, 2-0, in the next game to eliminate the Stars.
