Detroit hosts Chicago tonight in an Original Six matchup with playoff implications.

The 'Hawks are barely holding onto the Western Conference's eight seed while Detroit is tied with the San Jose Sharks for the second spot.

Much is being made of Chicago's injuries, as they're missing top scorer Patrick Sharp and third-liner Dave Bolland. Detroit, meanwhile, is missing Pavel Datsyuk and Jimmy Howard but will get Johan Franzen back in the lineup.

Joey MacDonald starts in Howard's absence, to be backed up by Thomas McCollum. Corey Crawford will be in the Blackhawks' crease.

Ugly start, Wings with one good shift, then the 'Hawks take over and get on the board.

Lidstrom had all kinds of time there.

And as I tweeted, Bertuzzi deserved the penalty for that hit but it wasn't called that way in Nashville.

Wings never got setup after the faceoff. Not good at all.

That's because it wasn't a Detroit penalty, it was a Chicago power play.

Maybe it's just as well they gave Bert a game misconduct; the way he was turning over the puck.

Nicely done boys!!!

Needed that goal. It was starting to look like Crawford would seal this game up.

Wings finally got to the front of the net. Went off Chicago but it was Cleary getting to the top of the crease that made it an option.

Total defensive breakdown. Looks like we were lucky on the wave-off.

Nice PK so far. Looks like there's three Helms out there again.

Fantastic PK but Chicago with a ton of pressure. Can't believe some of these calls though.

Well, the refs seem to find their whistles just fine for Detroit.

Jesus. Bad feeling about the four-on-three to start OT.
