Games won in regulation or overtime.

If the Hawks win in OT/SO, they end up with 1 less point than the Wings.
If the Hawks win in regulation, they end up with 101 points, the same as Detroit. Both teams would have 39 wins in regulation/overtime, so the next tiebreaker after that is the season series (which Chicago has already won)... and thus the Hawks would get the 5th seed ahead of the Wings.
