Solid goalkeeping - Whether it's Howard or Mrazek, the need to keep the puck out of the net is crucial to winning. Team needs to help the goaltender out as well by playing strong infront of him.

Buckle down - With ten games remaining, it's time to focus on securing a playoff position and playing consistently well. Pay attention to details, play as a 5-man unit trust your team mates.

Play with the lead - The Red Wings have allowed the first goal of the game in the past four games. Catch up hockey burns a lot of energy. Score early and shut down the opposition.

On March 26

1961: Terry Sawchuk held Toronto scoreless in the Wings’ 2-0 victory in Game 3 of the semifinals.

1997: Darren McCarty delivered some revenge to Colorado's Claude Lemieux, fighting the infamous forward 10 months after his hit from behind left Kris Draper with a broken jaw, nose and cheekbone. McCarty also lifted the Wings to a win that evening, scoring just 39-seconds into overtime to defeat the Avalanche at Joe Louis Arena.

Niklas Kronwall is day-to-day, and forward Pavel Datsyuk (lower body) might play against the Sharks. "We'll see how [Kronwall] feels. I think there's a chance he could play tomorrow night, but we have to see how he feels," general manager Ken Holland said. "... He felt some tenderness, and we decided, going into last night's game with 10 games to go, the last thing we need to do is do something to aggravate it for an extended period of time." Holland added, "We'll see how [Datsyuk] feels after the morning skate tomorrow. But Pav's close."

Erik Cole will likely miss the next three games after leaving Tuesday night's game with an upper body injury. The Red Wings' scheduled practice Wednesday was cancelled after a 5-4 overtime loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday at Joe Louis Arena. Detroit (90 points) is 3-6-1 in its past 10 games, hasn't won consecutive games since a three-game winning streak from Feb. 28- March 4, and is trying to hold off the Senators (85) for third place in the Atlantic Division. "Every point you can get down the stretch is important. We're going to have a day off Wednesday and come back refreshed on Thursday." Said Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg.
