After going into the postseason on a four game winning streak, Detroit came out flat in Game 1, and clearly were not happy with their performance Tuesday night. "As a group we didn’t feel that we played very well," coach Mike Babcock said. “We didn’t execute very well coming out of our own zone. We didn’t have a lot of speed, therefore we didn’t have attack time. We didn’t have good separation forwards and our D. We didn’t like our game very much.”

The Wings managed 22 shots on Jonas Hiller in Game 1, but they'll look to be more offensive in Anaheim's zone tonight. “I think we need to sustain more pressure in their end,” captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "There was too much one-and-done. They’re playing good defense. They’re clogging up the neutral zone pretty good, so we’ve got to get the pucks deep and go work in their end." If the Wings can get these things done tonight, they may be heading home in a suddenly best-of-five series.

Babcock

Coach Babcock said the same lineup will be in for Game 1 as it was down the stretch.


“You have to play (Anaheim) hard, have to play them strong. You have to cut off their cycle early. You just got to slow them down.”
- Dan Cleary told Ansar Khan

Cleary

“We don't go into it as a huge underdog. We think we're a good team.”
- Dan Cleary told Ansar Khan


“It’s no surprise that Pav and Z are our best players, they constantly are night in and night out. The same goes for (Perry and Getzlaf). Perry is one of those guys that has a nose for the net, and Getzlaf is
more of a passer.”
- Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

Howard

Abdelkader

“Both teams have some high-powered skill. At the same time, both teams play well defensively and don’t give up much.”
- Justin Abdelkader told Khan


Todd Bertuzzi will be a healthy scratch tonight.

Samuelsson

Continue to Play Well Defensively
- Detroit has given up just 14 goals in regulation in their last 11 games. Plain and simple, don't change a thing.

Best Players Need to Play Well - Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk combined for 18 points in the last 4 games. They came through when the playoffs were on the line. They need to continue their strong play into the playoffs.

Get Off to a Good Start - Sometimes in playoff hockey, the home team stumbles out of the gate in Game 1. The Wings need to get after the Ducks early. It's easier to play with the lead than playing catch up.
