The Detroit Red Wings are going for a season sweep of the three-game series against the Carolina Hurricanes before heading into yet another postseason appearance. Detroit is in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 24th consecutive season, but the Red Wings need one point to assure themselves of third place in the Atlantic Division.

A victory would give them 100 points for the 17th time in the past 20 full seasons. Detroit is 3-4-3 in its past 10 games, including a 4-3 overtime loss at the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday that clinched a playoff berth, and is 11-13-5 since Feb. 7, when the Red Wings completed a stretch of nine wins in 10 games.

The Red Wings didn't practice Friday, but did recall defenseman Alexey Marchenko from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League. Coach Mike Babcock may opt to rest some of his regulars, meaning that defenseman Jakub Kindl and forwards Tomas Jurco and Daniel Cleary could dress.

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 7:00 PM match-up on Fox Sports Detroit, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on 97.1 The Ticket or AM 1270.

Gustav Nyquist has been one of the hottest Red Wings the past two weeks. In the heat of the playoff race, Nyquist has elevated his game scoring every other night and 3 goal in the past 5 games. The goose has broken loose 27 times this year and matched that with 27 assists.

He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
