So, it's come to this; after 87 years together, over 800 games against each other, and a total of 15 Stanley Cups between the teams, the books will close on the division rivalry between the Red Wings and Blackhawks tonight. Could there be a more fitting ending than a Game 7? The Wings hope to end that last chapter tonight on a high note and punch their tickets to Hollywood for a matchup against the defending Cup champs.

Kronwall
Niklas Kronwall took a tough hit last game and skated off gingerly, but he skated today and is good to go tonight.

“You take some bumps and bruises along the way...
this is just part of it.”
- Niklas Kronwall

Zetterberg
There will be physical hits in the playoffs. Kronner’s one guy that will play through that. I have no worries about him. He’s a fighter...I’m sure there will be good hits again tomorrow.
- Henrik Zetterberg

Coach Babcock will go with the same lines and pairings
as in Game 5.

Take Away Their Time and Space - Chicago had too much time to make plays in Game 5. Don't give them any room tonight.

Dictate the Play Immediately - Don't weather the storm, this time we have to be the storm. Get the puck deep and be on the attack from the get-go.

Play Hard and Physical but Stay Out Of The Box - Detroit has to keep their emotions in check. Play with an edge, compete hard, and keep the elbows and sticks down. Force them to cause turnovers and generate offense from it.
