Control the Neutral Zone
- Make it tough for the Preds to get through. Also, be mindful of turnovers in the neutral zone; try to limit your own and take advantage of Nashville's turnovers.

Be Heavy in the Offensive Zone - The Wings have to spend time in the offensive zone, try to wear the Preds out. Cycle and grind in there, try to get a number of chances, and have the mindset that no one shot trips will get it done.

Execute Defensively - Have clean breakouts out of the defensive zone with active defensemen joining the rush. The boys in red need quick transitions against Nashville D and Pekka Rinne.
