Red Wings look to advance in Game 5 for a change

By AP

DETROIT (AP) – DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings had 3-1 series leads twice in the playoffs last year and failed to advance on home ice either time.

Detroit did, though, beat the Pittsburgh Penguins to win the Stanley Cup after eliminating the Dallas Stars. Both series ended in Game 6 on the road.

The defending champions would like to make things a little easier on themselves tomorrow night against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock says the key for the Red Wings is to realize they have done nothing yet.
