ROMULUS, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings are back home and liking their chances against the San Jose Sharks.

When asked Monday if he hoped to get back on a plane for Game 7 in San Jose, Detroit coach Mike Babcock said, “We’re getting on it.”

First, the Red Wings must avoid elimination again with a victory Tuesday night in Game 6 of this Western Conference semifinal. Babcock says Mike Modano will be in the lineup if Johan Franzen isn’t healthy enough to play.

Detroit has won two straight games, including a comeback 4-3 victory Sunday night on the road. The Red Wings are trying to become the fourth NHL team to win a series after losing the first three games.
