"We were better throughout the whole game...today, we played well for 60 minutes." - Jonathan Ericsson

The Wings said they wanted to put Game 1 in the past; they did that today by beating the Blackhawks in every facet of the game. After going down 1-0 in the first, the Wings ran off four straight in a 4-1 victory to bring the series back home tied at one game a piece.

Thanks for tuning in to our Game Day Blog...tune in Monday for Game 3 at The Joe!

Spend More Time in Offensive Zone
- Be more aggressive today. Get traffic in front of Corey Crawford and create multiple opportunities to score and win the game.

Get the Puck Quickly out of Defensive Zone - The defensemen need to get the puck to the forwards. They'll need a good first pass to get them on their way.

Get Solid Goalkeeping - Jimmy Howard played well in Game 1. He needs to be great again in Game 2 against this potent Hawks offense.
