The Red Wings will try to take a commanding 3-games-to-nothing lead over the Coyotes when they play tonight at Phoenix in their best of seven Western Conference quarterfinal series. Detroit took games one and two at Joe Louis Arena even though their regular season scoring leader Henrik Zetterberg stayed on the bench with a left knee sprain.
Zetterberg was on the ice for yesterday’s practice but didn’t take part in any of the physical drills and has been ruled out for tonight’s game three.
In the ECHL, the Kalamazoo Wings are up 2-games-to-nothing in their Eastern Conference semi-final series after winning Friday and Saturday at Reading, Pennsylvania. The K-Wings will host the Royals for game three on Wednesday night
