Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock says he hopes the team's next trip is to California.

For that to happen, the Red Wings have to eliminate the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6 on Monday night.

Seventh-seeded Detroit leads the second round series 3-2, putting the Red Wings a win away from advancing to the Western Conference finals to face the winner Los Angeles-San Jose series.

Chicago is counting on staving off elimination in Joe Louis Arena and making Game 7 necessary on Wednesday night in the Windy City.

The NHL's top-seeded Blackhawks extended the second round series with Detroit thanks to a 4-1 win Saturday night. Jonathan Toews ended his 10-game drought without scoring in the playoffs with a second-period goal that gave the Blackhawks a 3-1 lead.
