Blackhawks vs. Detroit Red Wings at the United Center, 6:30 p.m. Sunday


Radio: WGN-AM 720

The skinny: The Red Wings come in beaten, battered and fighting for their playoff lives in the Eastern Conference. They were 4 points out of a wild-card spot and chasing two teams before Saturday's games. They will be without captain Henrik Zetterberg (back), Pavel Datsyuk (knee), Darren Helm (concussion), Daniel Cleary (knee), Joakim Andersson (broken foot) and Stephen Weiss (sports hernia). Jimmy Howard will start in goal against Corey Crawford. Marian Hossa is expected to return for the Hawks after missing two weeks with an upper-body injury.

Next: Philadelphia Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday
