Skate - Florida can fly, so there is a strong need to keep pace with them.

Get into their Defensive Zone - Cycle the puck well and create scoring opportunities. Also, the Wings have to keep them out of our zone as much as possible. They'll need to be in the offensive zone to have success.

Take Advantage of Special Teams - Florida is last in the NHL on both the PP and the PK, so Detroit has to be aggressive and take calculated chances when they have the man advantage.

On February 6, 1971

Only days after proclaiming that Garry Unger was untouchable, general manager Ned Harkness traded the star center, along with Wayne Connelly to the St. Louis Blues for Red Berenson and Tim Ecclestone.

Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, who missed the past 14 games with a lower-body injury, traveled with the team to Florida on Wednesday and said via Twitter that he hopes to ber able to play. According to coach Mike Babcock, Datsyuk will decide if he's good to go following the morning skate Thursday.

"Yeah, better every day. It's better and now I skate with the team and it's more fun and more enjoyable and more confidence," Datsyuk said, regarding the injury.

Detroit is 6-6-2 without Datsyuk and a return by its top playmaker could help ward off the Eastern Conference teams gunning for the final wild-card spot for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Red Wings (62 points) hold the tiebreaker over the Philadelphia Flyers (62 points), having played one fewer game.

"We need Pav, he's one of our best players," Ken Holland said yesterday. "He's a dynamic player as well. When he's out there he takes a lot of attention off some other players. I think that's going to be good for the other guys."

Tonight, Pav and the Wings will look to beat Florida in Sunshine in their fifth and final meeting of the season.
