Tonight the Detroit Red Wings are home in the Joe hosting the Edmonton Oilers (you know, Gretzky's old team) Anyways the Wings right now are currently 6th in the Western Conference and are looking to climb into the 5th seed above the Predators. The Wings have been on a roll as of late winning now 5 in a row which included that incredible 1 goal game against Nashville last week. The Wings are coming to the conclusion of their schedule with only 7 games left to play in the regular season. Coach Mike Babcock gave his insight about the Wings position right now and he's feeling confident as the season draws to a close. "We are starting to pick things up right now and we are playing much better and I have really been impressed with how we are killing penalties and capitalizing on power plays." The Wings are looking to climb even farther with a chance to keep this momentum going with a home win tonight. They currently are a point above the LA Kings with 91, two above the Avalanche and only 3 below the 5th ranked Predators but with a streak of winning all remaining 7 games in their regular season the Wings have a chance to rake in 105 points! IF they can win out but more than likely there will be a possible loss or two. Tonight is expected to be a sold out game and an exciting one as the Wings continue their road to the playoffs!
