Hot off the press! Marek Zidlicky is already making his presence known one game into his stint with the Detroit Red Wings. Zid scored the game winning power play goal Wednesday night in walk-off fashion as the Wings defeated the Rangers, 2-1. Zidlicky clocked 17:44 of ice time and seems to be fitting in well with his partner Brendan Smith. Look for this pair to be dangerous again tonight.

Take advantage of the power play - The Wings has the best power play in the NHL, plus they've scored 22 PP goals against western conference foes this season. Make the best of scoring chances with the man advantage.

Protect the puck - The Red Wings were guilty of too many turnovers and giveaways against New York. This number needs to decrease.

Possess the puck - Control the play. The Wings have given up 40 shots in each of their last two games. Detroit hasn't allowed 40 shots in consecutive games since March 28-30, 2011. Take the pressure off the goalie by limiting the opponent's shots and scoring chances.

Putting aside the fact that the Wings are riding a three-game winning streak, the effects of Detroit’s six-game, 11-day Western Conference road trip were evident in its 2-1 overtime victory against the New York Rangers on Wednesday, when it was outshot 40-31. That fatigue carried into practice Thursday.

“We weren’t real crisp today,” coach Mike Babcock told the Red Wings website. “We had a late game last night. I don’t think we had a ton of energy here today, but I expect our energy to be back and us to have no reason to [not] play a lot better than we did. We’ve got to tighten up our game again and get back to the level we need to be at.”

One player who was fresh against New York was Zetterberg, who had two assists in 17:56 of ice time in his return to the lineup after missing four games because of a head injury.

Defenseman Marek Zidlicky, acquired in a trade with the New Jersey Devils before the NHL Trade Deadline on Monday, scored the overtime winner. He played 17:44 and was second among Detroit defensemen with 2:28 of power-play time.

Babcock, who said defenseman Jonathan Ericsson is banged up, will keep forwards Riley Sheahan, Gustav Nyquist and Stephen Weiss together despite not being pleased with his new third line’s performance against the Rangers. “They weren’t very good. Lots of us weren’t good though,” the coach said. “We’ll see if it’s a line that can spend some time in the offensive zone. We’ll give it another try tonight.”
