New York Islanders vs. Detroit Red Wings
Don't cheat - It's natural to cut corners when things are going well. Buckle down. Hard work and doing things right equals success.
Tighten up defensively - Play better in the defensive zone. Possess the puck. The best defense is to have the puck.
Start fast - Both the Red Wings and the Islanders are coming off losses. Both teams are good, and good teams usually turn it around quickly after a loss. Match and surpass the Islanders' intensity. Get going early.
