Pregame: Blackhawks @ Red Wings - Game 4 - 5/23

The Detroit Red Wings carry a 2-1 series lead into tonight's matchup as they host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game Four of their Western Conference Semifinal matchup.

The Wings can take a stranglehold on the series with a win while the 'Hawks can regain home-ice advantage in the series with a split of the Detroit games.

Detroit will make no lineup changes but, looking to get some production out of their power play, will swap Daniel Cleary in for Gustav Nyquist on the second power play unit. Coach Mike Babcock says he's looking for more of a grinding presence on the power play.

Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings are undefeated (2-0) all-time on May 23. They last played on this day in 1996. In each of their May 23 games, Detroit has scored six goals.

Game time is 8:00 PM on NBCSN.

Nice classless slash right in front of the ref by Toews..... That's a great message to send to kids. I used to have respect for this guy, but maybe Kane's poor sportsmanship and general bad decisions is rubbing off on him.

I will say that after the Kindl goal was the first time all season I've felt that this Red Wings team could do something in the playoffs. They're pulling it all together at just the right time.

Finally got to a playoff game last night. Gifted a pair of birthday tickets sec.120/7th row. Most rightous seats,energy and game. Two slightly stinky teenage girls a few seats over were forgiven as they heaved their octopi over the glass at games end. Woke up this morning with a broken voice box, but a happy heart.

Pretty sure that's a sign that you're doing it right.
