(AP) — The Los Angeles Kings are already returning to the playoffs.

The Detroit Red Wings could use more consistent scoring in their quest to reach the postseason.

The Red Wings attempt to move into playoff position by building on their best offensive performance in a month Wednesday night when they go for a fourth straight home win over the Kings.

Los Angeles (26-15-5) is headed to the playoffs, with only seeding to play for in its final two games. The reigning Stanley Cup champions are tied with San Jose for fourth in the Western Conference, one point ahead of St. Louis. The Kings hold the tiebreaker on both teams.

Detroit (21-16-8) sits ninth in the conference, one point back of Columbus for the eighth and final playoff position and two in front of Dallas.
