After a big Game 4 win on Monday featuring some overtime heroics, the Detroit Red Wings head back to Anaheim looking to take a pivotal Game 5 and bring the series home within one win of moving on.

The Wings and Ducks have alternated victories in this series without either team able to build enough momentum to win back-to-back games. Anaheim won Games 1 and 3. Detroit won Games 2 and 4.

"I concur with that but I'm a believer that's how the playoffs are," Babcock said. "You just keep playing and you take them one at a time, the highs and lows of it. There's huge highs and huge lows, that's just the playoffs each and every year. One minute you think, 'Oh, my God we're never winning!' and the next minute you think you're going to win the series."
