A lot of people didn't give the Wings much of a chance this series. They got smoked in Game 1 against the heavily favored Chicago Blackhawks. Then the magic happened; they ran off three straight in convincing fashion and now sit one win shy of putting away the Presidents' Trophy winners. The Wings know it won't be an easy task. “We know that they're a desperate team,” coach Mike Babcock said. “I'd like to think that we'll be desperate as well. You want to be as prepared as the opportunity is important and we have to play that hard.” If Babs is right, and he usually is, you can expect the best of both teams tonight.
