Generate Offense
- Not many scoring chances on Saturday were very good. Today, the Wings need to win battles in the corners and create many opportunities to score.

Stay Out of the Box - The team who has taken the least amount of penalties in the past 6 games has won the contest. Detroit has to play hard and be physical, but be smart and stay disciplined.

Play a Complete Game - A big 2 points are on the table today before the Wings hit the road. They have to play with grit and determination for 60 minutes.

Ericsson
"They’re always a hard team to play against. They always play hard and if you’re not going to play your best game you’re probably going to lose. They have our number this year, so we better come out strong.”
- Jonathan Ericsson

"We think we've done a lot of good stuff...We're definitely getting better defensively and playing harder as a group and more structured and more organized.”
- Mike Babcock

Holland

"We're a lot younger than we've been in the last 15 years. I like what I see. I like the evolution that is going on. We're starting to play tight, grittier hockey.”
- Ken Holland

Take the Crowd Out of the Game
- Dictate the play to the Blue Jackets early. Get scoring chances and try to get an early lead.

Don't Change a Thing Defensively - The Red Wings have been solid defensively for the past 5 games.  Continue to work hard and play well in front of Gustavsson.

Stay Out of the Box - The team that has taken the fewest penalties in the past 5 games has won the game. So the best penalty kill is to just stay out of the penalty box!
