Game Of The Week

DETROIT at SAN JOSE, TONIGHT

March 23, 2004|HELENE ELLIOTT

The Red Wings might ask if their 8-6 loss to the Mighty Ducks on Sunday was a fluke, or a sign they're not ready for the playoffs. "Every year or two, it seems, we play in a game like that," said Coach Dave Lewis, who added he wasn't "too worried" that Manny Legace gave up four goals on 12 shots. Already thin on defense, Detroit lost Mathieu Schneider to a hip/groin injury Sunday. He's day to day. Derian Hatcher (shoulder) might rejoin the lineup tonight, but Mathieu Dandenault ( foot) and Jason Woolley (back) remain out. The Sharks are 4-1-1 in their last six, which has helped them hold off Dallas and retain the Pacific lead. Coach Ron Wilson is enjoying the West playoff scramble. "Edmonton believes they have a shot. That's quite a charge Edmonton is making," he said. "Nashville's got a fairly soft schedule. It will be interesting to watch all this develop."
