It'll be winner take all tonight as the Red Wings play at Phoenix in Game 7 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. The Coyotes pulled out a 5-2 victory Sunday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena. This will be actually the second straight Game 7 for Detroit, which lost to Pittsburgh in last year's Stanley Cup Finals.
The Coyote’s franchise is 0-and-4 all-time in Game Sevens. The winner of tonight’s game will play top-seeded San Jose in the second round. The Chicago Blackhawks moved into the Western Conference semifinals after eliminating Nashville last night with a 5-3 win in Game 6. The Blackhawks won three straight after facing a 2-1 deficit in the series.
