Niklas Kronwall has been a beast on the blue line all year for Detroit, and the past few games have been no different. Kronner has netted 4 points in the past three games for Detroit (1 Goal, 3 Assists) which included the game winner in last Saturday's 7-6 overtime win in Dallas. Kronwall leads all Red Wings' defenseman with 35 points.
He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
Need a fast start - San Jose has dropped 6 straight at home. Don't give the Sharks or their crowd any life. Take it to them early.
Power play needs to come alive - Detroit was 0 for 5 vs LA. A couple of pp goals would have been the difference vs the Kings. Make the best of scoring chances while on the pp
Balanced scoring - Pavel Datsyuk has been carrying the load lately. All 4 lines need to contribute offensively.
