Lightning face must-win against eliminated Wings

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Detroit Red Wings are missing the playoffs for the first time in 25 years, while the Tampa Bay Lightning are just trying to avoid joining them on the golf course.

A 4-1 Detroit loss at Carolina on Tuesday night -- the Red Wings' third game in as many days and fourth in five days -- officially eliminated the Wings from playoff contention, though they are trying to maintain the franchise's same intensity without the postseason ahead.

"We're treating every game like a playoff game -- we have to make sure we maintain the culture," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after Tuesday's loss, looking forward to a single day of rest before facing the Lightning.
