Niklas Kronwall has been red hot all season long. Not only is he sixth in the NHL among defensemen with 22 points this season, but he also leads the team with a +12 rating. He also scored the lone goal in last night's game against Pittsburgh.

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

Our Top Players Must be Better than Tampa's - This didn't happen last night. Detroit's top players need to step it up and produce.

Get Inside on the Power Play - Detroit was on the outside last night against Pittsburgh. They need to get shots through from in front of the net and keep the puck in the offensive zone as much as possible while with a man advantage.

Hard Work Pays Off - The Wings need to push and be smart every shift. Dictate the play all night.
