Opportunity knocks - Time for Petr Mrazek to shine. With Howard out Mrazek has the chance to play well and impress the coaching staff.
Don't give Buffalo any life - The Sabres have lost 7 straight and are 1-8-1 in their last 10 games. Be ready to play and execute the game plan.
Start fast & finish strong - It's been 9 games since Detroit scored the first goal of the game. Get the early lead, start on time and finish the job.
