Red Wings-Sharks Preview 3-28-13

(AP) — The Detroit Red Wings have revived their previously mediocre power play, and the now-potent unit is propelling them toward a strong finish.

They’re also playing particularly well on the road, something they’ll try to continue Thursday night against a San Jose Sharks team that boasts one of the league’s best penalty kills.

The Red Wings (17-11-5) own the fifth spot in the Western Conference, three points ahead of the Sharks, who pulled into a tie for seventh with St. Louis after Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Anaheim. Three straight victories – and five in six games – have moved the Red Wings within striking distance of a top-four seed, with the team’s improved power play a big reason why.
