The Detroit Red Wings were officially eliminated from postseason contention on Tuesday night, which snaps the franchise's 25-season streak.

It will feel strange not seeing Detroit in the playoffs. "It's a great streak," Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "The guys who have been part of it should be proud of it. Unfortunately it's over. We've just got to move on and look to the future."

Jimmy Howard stopped 28 of 32 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

A tough task for any goaltender playing behind a team on their third game in as many nights. Howard faced a steady dose of shots and saw his team be outshot 22-9 after two periods. The Hurricanes jumped out to a 3-0 lead and the Red Wings didn't have enough gas to get back into it. The loss drops Howard's record to 9-9-1 on the year with a 2.02 goals against average and a .932 save percentage.
Mar 28 - 10:04 PM

Tomas Nosek scored his first career NHL goal in a 4-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

On the back-end of their third game in as many nights, the Red Wings looked gassed and could only put one behind Cam Ward. It took Nosek 10 career games to score his first goal and record his first point. He has some offensive upside but shouldn't be on any fantasy radars for at least another couple of years. Ben Street and Drew Miller picked up the assists on Nosek's goal.
