SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The fact that the Detroit Red Wings were skating in San Jose on Saturday offered a small glimmer of hope that maybe they might add a little more drama to the franchise's storied history.
At this point, they'll take anything they can get.
The Red Wings took an overnight flight to California after Game 4, landed in the wee hours of the morning and were back practicing before noon despite little sleep and worn-down bodies.
No time to rest now.
Only three NHL teams have overcome 3-0 deficits to win a best-of-seven series. After avoiding the embarrassment of being swept on home ice, Detroit will have to do something it failed to do last postseason to stay alive: win Game 5 at San Jose on Sunday night.
