The Red Wings wrap up the regular season in Chicago this afternoon, their playoff position locked in and their opponent down to two possibilities. Depending on the outcome of this afternoon's Wings-'Hawks matchup, Detroit will face either the Phoenix Coyotes or the Nashville Predators in the opening round.

A Red Wings win of any kind matches them up with Phoenix. If a regulation win is coupled with a Dallas win in regulation or overtime later today, the Blackhawks will be knocked out of the playoffs and the Stars will be in.

If Chicago wins, the Red Wings will face the Predators. A shooutout win for the Blackhawks would create a three-way tie for fifth place but the 'Hawks have the tiebreaker.

As expected, Detroit will be without Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall for the game. Jimmy Howard is the Wings' likely starter in goal.

I'm tempted to work through this game and just listen on the radio. Just not feeling it, a lot like Friday night. I hope I'm wrong.

Solid save by Jimmy right before the Homer penalty.

Seems the Wings are playing it a bit loosie-goosie and it's getting in Chicago's loop.

Howard looks solid tonight. Doing a good job at controling rebounds.

Great period. Wings seemed to flip a switch. Can't believe they haven't gotten a power play yet.

I wonder what the Dallas Stars, sitting in their hotel rooms in St. Paul watching this game, are thinking about their chances.

Well, the Hawks are going to come out on fire in the final period. They've got nothing left to loose at this point. Detroit needs to be careful. Just stay loose and keep their heads up. Look like they can't depend on getting any penalties called their way (Yeah, I know, nothing new here) so they're going to have to stay real smart on the puck. And Jimmy H is coming through for a change. How 'bout that?
