Red Wings-Hurricanes Preview (The Associated Press)

The Detroit Red Wings have extended their historic playoff streak, though they’re a bit banged up heading into their latest postseason appearance. They might use Saturday night’s regular-season finale against the Carolina Hurricanes as an opportunity to rest some stars. Detroit (42-25-14) clinched its 24th consecutive playoff berth in unsatisfying fashion, blowing two leads in a 4-3 overtime loss at Montreal on Thursday. The Red Wings failed to score a power-play goal for the first time in five games.
