Start On Time - The Red Wings are rested. Boston played an overtime game yesterday. Take advantage of this from the opening face off. Detroit needs to get off to a good start and dictate the play to the Bruins.
Play Fast - Boston will try to play physical and slow the game down. Need to make the Bruins skate. Move the puck and play fast.
Win the Goaltending Battle - Jonas Gustavsson needs to outperform Rask and be ready to start on time.
