Pregame: Lightning @ Red Wings – Game 6

The Red Wings return home to host the Tampa Bay with a chance to eliminate the Lightning and advance to face the Montreal Canadiens in the Atlantic Division Finals.

As expected, Detroit will roll the same lineup they’ve used since Game Three, with Petr Mrazek – coming off of his second shutout in three games – getting the start in goal for the Red Wings.

Stupid stat of the day: The Red Wings are unbeaten on April 27 in games in which they can eliminate their playoff opponent (1988, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2010).

Game time is 7:00 PM on FSD.
