SOMETHING TO PLAY FOR:Elimination looms, but here’s why it matters that Detroit Red Wings are showing life
Game notes: After a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday, it’s Eastern Conference opponents from here on out for the Red Wings to end the season. The first team up is the Columbus Blue Jackets in the final showdown between the two teams this season. Both teams enter struggling in their last 10, both playing below .500. However, the Wings are the hotter of the two teams with a two-game winning streak.
A player to watch in Saturday night at Little Caesars Arena is Wings center Michael Rasumssen; he has four goals in his past five games, including goals in back-to-back games against the Bruins and Jets.
