Fight The Fatigue
- Lots of travel in the past 2 days. Lots of travel in the past month, period. The Wings have got to be mentally tough and put those tired thoughts in the back of the mind. The Avs are rested and didn't play last night, so it's important the Wings are mentally sound.

Play for 60 Minutes - Detroit has to compete hard the entire game. Not competing for the entire game could cost the team two points. All points are huge now with just 11 games left.

Take Away Avs' Time and Space - Colorado is a young and fast team. The Wings need to slow them down in the neutral zone; that's where they generate that speed.
