Trailing the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 in their Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup, the Red Wings host Game Four in Detroit tonight.
The Red Wings will be without forward Justin Abdelkader, suspended for two games following his hit on Toni Lydman in Game Three. The hit also earned him a five-minute major (on which the Ducks’ first goal was scored) and ejection.
Stupid stat(s) of the day: The Red Wings are 13-22 all-time in series in which they trail 1-2 after three games. That drops to 2-19 if they lose Game Four.
Game time is 8:00 PM on FSD.
