Solid Goalkeeping - The goaltending needs to be sharp tonight, especially with all the offense lost due to injury.

Get Inside - That's the best way to score, but you have to pay a price to get there. It's the way to get rebounds, deflections. and second scoring chances.

Be Smart on the Power Play - Calgary has scored six shorthanded goals this season. They lead the league and take advantage with their speed. Be mindful of that tonight.

The glut of Detroit injuries isn't helping matters, but the type of play and effort recently do not match what's expected of the Red Wings.

"We really can't think too much about the past," goalie Jonas Gustavsson said. "We have to really put all of the focus on the next game and that game only. It's not like we're going to win five games at once. We've got to win one game and go from there, so I know we're all looking to bounce back and we're going to do everything that we can."

Tonight, they'll look to get back on track against the Calgary Flames.

The Wings saw a pair of rookies record their first career NHL points tonight, with Jurco scoring and Glendening picking up a late assist, but the Wings were just too banged up and fell to Anaheim, 5-2.

Thanks for tuning in to our Game Day Blog...tune in Thursday when we host Calgary!
