"Great moments... are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game..." - Herb Brooks in Miracle

Tonight, the Red Wings will look to extend their own miracle run, the jaw-dropping playoff streak which could improve to 22 in the coming hours, when they take on the Dallas Stars in The Lone Star State. A number of scenarios would put the Red Wings in the postseason tonight, but the easiest one is to walk away with at least one point tonight against a Dallas team that has suddenly come down to Earth after a recent winning streak. Nevertheless, the red hot Wings will no doubt have a tough game to play against a Stars team hoping to play spoiler and shine in their season's curtain call. While Detroit has a rich history of coming up big in crunch time, it all comes down to these three periods at American Airlines Center.

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

You can watch tonight's 7:00 PM game on NBC Sports Network or Fox Sports Detroit, or tune in on AM1270.

Tootoo

Jordin Tootoo was later credited with the game-winner last night after deflecting in a Patrick Eaves shot.


“I thought he had one of his best games as a Red Wing last night. He was efficient, he was in the right spots and took care of the puck.”
- Mike Babcock on Jordin Tootoo

Fight The Fatigue
- This will be the third game in four nights for Detroit. The last two games were like playoff contests. Be mentally tough.

Keep Playing Solid Defense - Detroit has allowed just two goals in their last three games. Jimmy Howard has been solid as a rock, as well. Limit the shots on goal and that will put the team in a position to win.

Be Hard on the Forecheck - Put pressure on the Nashville defense. Force them to cough up the puck and create scoring chances.
