Daniel Alfredsson has been red hot this season. Not only is he third on the team with 27 points, but he's coming off his best game of the season, scoring twice and recording an assist in a 3-2 win over Calgary just last game.

He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!

Make the Best of Scoring Chances - The Leafs, as a team, give up a ton of shots. There will be scoring chances tonight, so make them count.

Convert on the Power Play - The Leafs have allowed 30 PP goals this season. They rank 27th in the league. Take advantage of this as a team.

Solid Goalkeeping - There's incentive for Jonas Gustavsson to play well against his former team. Detroit needs a good effort between the pipes.
