The Red Wings wrap up the season series against the St. Louis Blues tonight in Motown. The Wings have won four of the first five in the series and have the chance to clinch their 11th consecutive 100-point season tonight against a tumbling Blues team. Although not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet, the Blues are pretty well on their way to the golf course with just 6 games to go and a huge gap to make up.
The Blues will be without TJ Oshie tonight as he serves a 2-game suspension for missing practice while the Red Wings will be without injured goalie Jimmy Howard and the close-to-returning-but-still-not-Helmer-speed Pavel Datsyuk.
Puck drops at 7:30 PM ET and your ears will be blessed with the dulcet tones of Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond tonight, unless you are JJ or Kendal, sorry gents. Comment away below and LET'S GO RED WINGS!
