He's Today's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
Arizona Coyotes vs. Detroit Red Wings
Respect your opponent - The Coyotes are 1-17-1 since February 10th. The Red Wings can't look ahead. This is the NHL. All teams and players want to win no matter what their record is. The past doesn't matter. Focus on this game only. It's crunch time. Every point counts.
Build off Sunday's win - Carry that momentum into this game against Arizona. The Red Wings did a lot of good things against a very good opponent in St. Louis. Take advantage of the home stand.
Find ways to score - The Red Wings need to generate offense. They've scored just 4 goals in their last 3 games. Get to the net. Get shots through to the goalie and retrieve loose pucks. Need sustained pressure in the offensive zone.
