Pavel Datsyuk will not return tonight.

Pav seemed to indicate that it was more his conditioning
rather than pain that would keep him sidelined.

Skate - The Bruins pride themselves on tough, physical, grinding play. To offset that, the Red Wings must force Boston to skate.

Stay Away from Physical Play - That is the Bruins game and you don't want to play into their hands. Force them to play your game.

Get the Lead - Detroit doesn't want to fall behind to Boston. They need to score first, and Jimmy Howard needs to be solid again in goal.

The Red Wings (84 points) swept both ends of a back-to-back set this past weekend to move into the first Stanley Cup playoffs wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, and will go for their third straight win tonight against a sizzling Boston Bruins team.

Detroit might have put a little distance between themselves and those chasing a wild-card spot, but the Red Wings can't afford to breathe easily if they want to secure their 23rd straight playoff appearance.

Helping the cause of late has been the return of injured regulars, such as Tomas Jurco and Justin Abdelkader, back into the lineup. Top-line center Pavel Datsyuk (knee) might also return against Boston. After practicing Tuesday, he hopes to be a game-time decision.

"It’s great to see him out on the ice skating and being part of practices,” forward Daniel Alfredsson said. “We feel that we’re playing pretty consistent hockey right now and getting a guy with his experience and his offensive abilities, among other things, will be a big boost for this team."

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.
