It's the third virtual must-win in a row for the Red Wings, only this time the Coyotes have just as much on the line. With the series tied at two games apiece tonight's loser faces elimination on Sunday in Detroit.

The Red Wings will keep the same lineup and lines they used to pick up a 3-0 win in Game Four on Tuesday. Phoenix is changing things up, however.

Former Red Wing Mathieu Schneider will dress for the Coyotes tonight, replacing another former Wing as Robert Lang shifts out of the lineup. Schneider is expected to help a Phoenix power play that hasn't scored since going three-for-four with the man-advantage in Game One.

With a defenseman swapping for a forward, Phoenix will go with seven blueliners and only eleven forwards.

The status of Phoenix captain Shane Doan is still uncertain. He missed Game Four after injuring his shoulder in Game Three and hasn't completed a practice since.

Game time is 10:00 on Fox Sports Detroit and Versus.

Is it bad that my favorite part of this game is that Schneider is playing? Hahaha. Hopefully that will change by the end of the night with a Wings you-know-what :)

Hopefully Schneider playing is a sign of Phoenix being in trouble.

Two good power plays but no goals. Blown opportunities.

Jimmy comes up big repeatedly. Mickey's right, could see that penalty coming.

That's off Fiddler, it's Miller's goal I think.

My thoughts:

1. Lots of traffic in the neutral zone which means Phoenix is going to trap.

2. Has hockey gone redneck with the "Jack Daniels" Cam?

3. Schneider is like Chelios... He won't go away!

4. Why do we review every goal the Wings get?

5. Williams has been permanently replaced by Abdelkader!

Mickey's wrong, Jovonovski's skate was caught up in Jimmy's pad.

The Wings are so friggin' inconsistent this series. After one I'm feeling like they're in control, then Phoenix takes over in the second. Detroit *has* to bounce back here.
