Fast start - Be ready to play from the opening face off. Montreal is well rested. They haven't played since Sunday. Have the jump early.

Score and play with the lead - Montreal has given up the least amount of goals in the NHL. They don't score a lot and their leading point producer Max Pacioretty is out due to injury. Force the Canadiens to play catch up hockey. Imperative to not fall behind early. Uphill battle if that happens.

Take care of business tonight - Win and you're in! The cards are in the Red Wings hands. Time is running out. Avoid all the pressure of needing a victory on the final day of the season. Opportunity is knocking!

The Red Wings control their own destiny when it comes to making a run in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Win tonight, and they'll be on the fast track to their 24th consecutive playoff birth. Tonight Detroit will face-off with Atlantic Division rival/potential first round match-up, the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs have gotten the better of Detroit this season, winning all three games the clubs have played, Detroit did manage to get a point out of an overtime loss back in October.

Tonight, goalie Jimmy Howard will make his second start in a row. Forward Justin Abdelkader could play against Montreal after missing the past two games because of a hand injury, but Erik Cole will miss the rest of the regular season and Stanley Cup playoffs, should the Red Wings clinch a berth because of a spinal cord contusion.

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Gameday Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from the players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings in game day. 

You can watch tonight's 7:30 PM match-up on Fox Sports Detroit, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on 97.1 The Ticket or AM 1270.

Detroit earned two big points tonight in a comeback victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-2. Unfortunately, Ottawa came back from a 3-0 deficit to defeat Pittsburgh in overtime, 4-3, so we couldn't clinch a playoff spot tonight. However, Detroit cut its magic number to two with two games remaining. One more win would give the Wings a playoff berth for the 24th straight year. We'll head to Montréal next and hope to clinch there on Thursday!
