What did the Detroit Red Wings ever do to Ron Wilson? Well, they fired his father, Larry Wilson, as coach in 1977. They fired his Uncle Johnny too, in 1973. Then there was the time they told Ron's father he'd be playing in the minors for a few games. "Two weeks of conditioning," Ron remembers, still incredulous. "It ended up being 13 years." And all that was long before the Red Wings beat the Mighty Ducks in the first game in franchise history--smoking the Ducks, 7-2, on Oct.

One season under the NHL's realigned conference setup probably was enough for Eastern teams to veto future additions from the West. The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets, who moved from the West to the East before this season, won their new conference's two wild-card playoff berths. The Red Wings will make their 23rd consecutive postseason appearance, and the Blue Jackets will make their second appearance in franchise history. First place in the East - and overall - went to the Boston Bruins, with the Ducks winning the No. 1 spot in the West.

Update: Defenseman Drew Doughty isn't expected to play because of a deep thigh bruise he sustained Monday on a hit from Evgeny Artyukhin in the Kings' 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay. He missed the third period and didn't practice Tuesday or Wednesday. Forward Oscar Moller (fractured clavicle) was placed on the injured reserve list retroactive to Jan.

A few days ago, Major League Baseball approved the expanded use of video replays next season. On Saturday, the limits of the NHL's current video replay rules became apparent -- and painfully so for the Kings. NHL rules don't allow for video review on plays in which the puck goes out of bounds. That loophole became a sinkhole when the four officials on the ice didn't see the puck hit the protective netting above the glass on a shot by Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall before it fell, struck goaltender Jonathan Quick on the back and caromed into the net to bring the Red Wings even with the Kings in the final minute of their game at Joe Louis Arena.

Antti Miettinen got Minnesota going with a pair of first-period goals, and Detroit's defense fell apart down the stretch in the Wild's 5-2 victory over the Red Wings on Wednesday night. Josh Harding made the early scores hold up with 26 saves for Minnesota, 6-0-1 in its last seven home games. Miettinen, who has 15 goals this season, had his third two-goal game in his last seven games. Pavel Datsyuk had two goals in the first period for the Red Wings, who have found themselves in a real fight for a playoff spot for the first time in years.

It didn't make up for their disappointment over losing Game 7 of their first-round playoff series to Detroit at the Honda Center last spring, but the Ducks had many reasons to be pleased Sunday with their 1-0 home victory over the Red Wings. In winning their seventh straight game and 17th in the past 18, the Ducks remained the only NHL team that hasn't lost in regulation at home this season, at 19-0-2. They also increased their league-leading point total to 75. They're only the fifth team since the 1973-74 season to record points in each of their first 21 home games.

DETROIT -- Greetings from Detroit, where it's snowing lightly. The Kings' morning skate at Joe Louis Arena was optional, but it appeared that their lineup Saturday against the Red Wings will be the same as it was in their 4-1 victory over St. Louis on Thursday. Forwards Tanner Pearson and Linden Vey remained on the ice with goaltender Martin Jones for extra work, a sign they'll be scratched. Coach Darryl Sutter left the arena without speaking to the media. It was a jolt to walk into the Red Wings' locker room and see many unfamiliar names affixed to the stalls.

The Detroit Red Wings now know one thing: It's not going to be easy. The Blackhawks got themselves right back into the Western Conference finals series with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Wings in Game 3 on Friday night at the United Center. The win cut Chicago's deficit series to two games to one with Game 4 scheduled for Sunday. It could be a costly victory, however, as both star winger Martin Havlat and goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin left the game because of injuries.

The Detroit Red Wings, looking to become the first repeat Stanley Cup champions since they accomplished the feat in 1997 and 1998, continue their quest in the Western Conference finals against the Chicago Blackhawks today at Detroit. The Eastern Conference finals begin in Pittsburgh on Monday night, when the Penguins play host to the Carolina Hurricanes. The Red Wings are in the conference finals for the third consecutive year and for the eighth time in 14 seasons.

Marian Hossa's short-handed goal got the short-handed Detroit Red Wings started Sunday. And once they got rolling, the defending champions overpowered the frustrated Chicago Blackhawks and moved to within one win of a return trip to the Stanley Cup finals. With injured stars Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk sidelined, Hossa and Henrik Zetterberg had two goals each, sending the Red Wings to a 6-1 victory and a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals.

DETROIT - Tomas Tatar scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Kings in a game that shouldn't have gotten past regulation. Jeff Carter had given the Kings a 2-1 lead with 2:15 left in the third period on a power-play goal. However, a bizarre goal on a play that's not reviewable allowed the Red Wings to tie the score with 26.1 seconds left in the third. Niklas Kronwall's shot deflected high in the air and hit the protective netting behind the goal and above the glass before hitting Jonathan Quick in the back and going into the net. Play should have been stopped when the puck hit the netting, but the four officials apparently didn't see what had happened.

DETROIT - Kings defenseman Drew Doughty raised his right arm automatically to indicate that a shot by Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall had bounced off the protective netting above the glass before it hit goaltender Jonathan Quick's back and dropped into the net with 26.1 seconds left in the third period Saturday. Doughty's posture was almost casual. The Kings were protecting a one-goal lead in the final minute, but he expected the referee to blow the whistle for the stoppage that's supposed to result when the puck hits the netting and negate the apparent goal.

DETROIT - Defenseman Jake Muzzin's emotions swung quickly Thursday from exhilaration to exasperation. The 24-year-old scored the Kings' first goal against St. Louis - his first point in 15 games - but was responsible for the Blues' equalizer after his shot on goal was blocked and turned into a breakaway for T.J. Oshie. Muzzin impeded Oshie, who was awarded a penalty shot and scored. "Stuff's going to happen. There's no sense dwelling on it or letting it affect the rest of your game," he said Friday after the Kings practiced at Joe Louis Arena.

Not once since the Ducks distanced themselves from the Western Conference pack had goaltender Jonas Hiller recorded a shutout, but their plentiful production meant he never had to blank an opponent to be sure of a win. Sunday night, with their legs tiring in their third game in four days, the Ducks needed him to get a shutout. And he did. Hiller stopped 22 shots and Andrew Cogliano scored off a slick setup from Saku Koivu in the second period as the Ducks defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 1-0, at Honda Center to extend their winning streak to seven and long-term dominance to 17-1.

From what Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle was saying Saturday, it didn't matter so much that the Red Wings juggled their lines in Game 4 to put Marian Hossa with Johan Franzen and Valtteri Filppula, forming an explosive trio that produced four goals and seven points in a series-tying victory.

Tom Gilbert scored twice, Mike Comrie added a goal and an assist, and Zack Stortini also scored for Edmonton. Jeff Deslauriers made 39 saves.

One bad line change, one well-placed rebound and one opportunistic, hard-charging forward. That was the game-changing play between the Kings and the Red Wings on Saturday night at Staples Center. Tomas Tatar of Slovakia scored the game-winner in the third period with 7 minutes 54 seconds to play, giving the injury-depleted Red Wings a 3-1 victory over the Kings. The breakdown came even before Kings goalie Jonathan Quick kicked the rebound of a Riley Sheahan shot right onto the stick of the on-rushing Tatar.

Dustin Penner might not be familiar with all of the details, but when the forward was asked about the Ducks' visit to Detroit tonight, he figured out all he needed to know. "Is that the first time we've played them since they eliminated us?" asked Penner, who spent last season with the Kings. "Oh, then it is a big game. " The Ducks (23-7-5) created this season's motto, "Unfinished Business," because of their disappointment over last season's first-round playoff exit against the seventh-seeded Red Wings.
