Be Efficient on the PP
- Tonight, the Wings will have to generate more shots, crash the net, and get pucks on Lehtonen.

D-Men Must Start the Rush - The Red Wings’ blue-liners need to make good first passes to the forwards and get the offense going quickly.

Get on the Board Early - Score first! The Wings haven't scored a first period goal this year, so they need to feed off the crowd, build momentum early, and get that first goal.

“It's going to be imperative we stay together as a five-man unit, forecheck well, play defense well, be patient…We need to get off to a good start, be strong in the faceoff circle and be ready to compete.”
– Mike Babcock

“(Chicago’s a) great team, high-octane offense. That's a great challenge for our defense. I think we're really looking forward to the challenge.”
– Kyle Quincey


Jonathan Ericsson is expected to play tonight.

Ericsson was joined by Eaves, Tootoo, McCollum and Gustavsson this morning.

Jonas Gustavsson (groin) took shots for the first time and continues to improve.

Tom McCollum will back up Jimmy Howard tonight.  

“Drastic, night and day.”
– Mike Babcock on how his defense looked last game compared to season opener

“(Friday) was a building block, for sure…We're going to keep getting better every game.”
– Kyle Quincey
“So far (our defense) has been better every game. Of course, it always helps when Howie's playing great in net. Both Lash and Huskins have played great since they got there. So, very impressive.''
– Niklas Kronwall

“We've been doing a lot better job (on defense). I think a lot of it is guys sacrificing their bodies. There's good communication back there, which allows us to break out faster.”
– Jimmy Howard

“The type of team we have, we're going to see a lot of games where it's going to be a grind-fest. So embrace what you got and be the best that you're capable of.”
– Babcock
