Start on time - The crowd will be fired up, and the octopies will be flying. Play with energy and take it to the Lightning early.

Continue the stingy defense - It all starts with solid goalkeeping and Petr Mrazek has been sensational. Continue to play well as a 5 man unit in front of him as well. Detroit has shut out Tampa Bay in 8 of the last 9 periods.

Finish the job - It's a 60 minute game. Play well, compete, win the battles and the game... Advance!

The Red Wings will look to eliminate Tampa in Game Six tonight as the series shifts to the Motor City. Detroit Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek is experiencing the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time, but the 23-year-old sounds like a veteran heading Game 6 of their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Joe Louis Arena on Monday. "You try and be focused for every game," Mrazek said Sunday. "You want to finish it as soon as possible. We know the game starts from 0-0 [Monday] and we're going to go and play hard." Mrazek has two shutouts in the series, including a 28-save performance in Game 5. He's rewarded coach Mike Babcock for picking him rather than veteran Jimmy Howard to start when the playoffs started. "He was a star in junior," Red Wings Mike Babcock said. "His first year in the American [Hockey] League he wins the Calder Cup. You don't win the Calder Cup by accident so he must be good," Babcock said. "And every time we called him up he played good. He plays good so he must be good."
