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.

Justin Abdelkader scored in overtime to give Detroit a 2-1 win against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday. It was his 20th goal of the season, doubling his previous career high. Forward Erik Cole has three goals in the past five games after being held without one in his first five with the Red Wings following a trade from the Dallas Stars on March 1st. Detroit will look to build off of Sunday's victory, after having lost four of their past six, and now only hold a four point advantage over the surging Ottawa Senators for third place in the Atlantic Division. Tonight's effort will likely will be without center Pavel Datsyuk for a fourth straight game due to a lower body injury. Datsyuk skated at practice at Joe Louis Arena on Monday, but said there is only a small chance he will play. "Feeling better," Datsyuk said. "But not like 100 percent. We're looking at the bigger picture." Jimmy Howard is expected to get the nod in goal tonight, as the Red Wings will look to complete the season sweep against the Arizona Coyotes.
