Are the Wings going to keep the Hawks out of the playoffs?

Still, being willing to lay out to block a shot, go hard into corners and to the net, etc, -- things that a team that has to win will do and things that a team that just wants to avoid injury won't -- could end up being important. But while it will definitely be impossible to match Chicago's intensity in those games, that's hardly the only determining factor in winning or losing.

Tonight isn't going to be an easy game for the Blackhawks.

Should never let up
And hopefully the Wings feel differently than some fans here. You play to win the game and I hope they do just that.

As far as The Wings. Unless someone is injured, we have to play our starters. We're trying to get that 2nd seed, and it isn't like them to rest players when position is on the line. I also don't think that they really care who they face in the first round, as they believe that if they play for 60 minutes, that they can beat anyone.

I'd love to see it, however. It'd be a nice feather in our cap, especially since I don't see us going far in the actual playoffs.
Not to mention, Dallas has been subpar the second half of the season. Who says they'll win any games?

Keeping them out would be like a bonus playoff series win for me, and I hope they win tonight just to be right on the edge. But I really don't see it happening.

no way chicago isn't making it. money wasn't spent making the toews and kane "history will be made" commercials and have them not be in the playoffs. remember how chicago helped the ratings last season?
Hahahaha true dat.
I don't see the Hawks missing it. I'd love to, but i just don't think it's gonna happen, and I would LOVE to be wrong.

Beat me to it.
League decided that Chicago will, in fact, be in the playoffs at all costs.
