After taking the first of back-to-back home games and a 2-1 series lead, Detroit will look to win Game 4 tonight at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings coach recognizes the significance of a potential 3-1 series lead. "We're just worried about what we're going through and making it as hard as we possibly can on (Chicago)," coach Mike Babcock said. "We got enough to do to keep our group focused and understanding how important the game is. In the playoffs, it's all about the next game. During the year it is, too, but the playoffs are really about that."

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 8:00 PM game on NBC Sports Network, or CBC/RDS for our Canadian viewers, or tune in on 97.1 The Ticket.

Babcock
 “At the start of the year, we weren't a good team. We all understood that, but we buckled down and got better. It's been a fun year for us. If you would have asked me before the playoffs, I would've told you the same thing. Then, suddenly you have a little success in the
playoffs and it's more fun.”

- Mike Babcock

“You’ve got a lot of guys in there with a lot of energy. You can see the excitement on their faces. It is a great time of year for all of us. We’re all enjoying it, having fun.”
- Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

Don't Change a Thing - Play the same way as in Game 2, the Wings best playoff game this postseason.

Play with Controlled Emotion - The crowd will be rockin' at The Joe tonight. Emotions will be high. Play with intensity but under control.

Take Advantage of Home Ice - Tonight is a perfect opportunity to use home ice as an advantage. Be on the attack. Try to score early and get the big crowd behind the team!
