Tomas Tatar is starting to heat up after going 8 games without scoring a goal. Last game, Tats netted his team leading 26th goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to Tampa. The Red Wings will need Tomas Tatar firing on all cylinders this afternoon if they want to end up back in the 'W' column against the St. Louis Blues.
He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
Start On Time - Early games, especially ones that start at noon, are tough on players. The team that gets out of the starting gate the quickest will have the advantage.
Score - Detroit has two goals in their last two games. They need to find a way to turn on the red light on a more consistent basis. When there is a grade-A scoring chance, bury the puck.
Control the Puck - The best defense is to have the puck more than your opponent. Win faceoffs, win battles, get rebounds and convert on scoring chances.
