Riley Sheahan is quietly having a great season for the Red Wings. In just his second year with the club, Sheahan has managed to score 12 goals and 22 assists ranking 7th on the squad with 34 points. In Detroit's past 5 games Sheahan has recorded 2 goals and 3 assists.
He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
Get started - This didn't happen last night. Be ready to go at the drop of the puck. Be engaged early.
Tighten up - Lightning has the best goal scoring average in the NHL. 3.21 goals per game. Need to keep them to the outside and limit their scoring chances.
Win the goaltending battle - Howard needs to be sharp. Make the big saves to keep the team in the game. Red Wings need to give him goal support as well.
