But if there's one team out there that has the mental mojo over us, it's the Wings. And with the Blues somehow leading the central, we might end up in a first round matchup here. We've dominated the central except for the DRW, and frankly, we need to start showing we can beat them.

Next, if we want 4th place and home ice, tonight's the night to start doing it. There's not that many chances left to gain what's essentially 4 points on the team directly ahead of us. Not to mention keeping Chicago off our backs.

Win, and we shatter some of that Wings invincibility that seems to be dogging us this year. Lose, and that mountain we might need to climb here in a few weeks might just loom a little taller.

Chicago is still four points back with two more games played ... not exactly on our back, but definitely a light in the rear view. Winning in regulation tonight means the Preds still control their own fate in relation to the Wings. An OT win or loss and we then need a little help to pass the Wings in the standings.
