Pavel Datsyuk recored his 6th career post-season multi-goal game on Thursday as the Red Wings defeated the Lightning 3-2. The Magic Man netted 2 goals earning a 100% shooting percentage for the second time this season. Datsyuk will have to be A+ again tonight if Detroit wants to head back to Hockeytown up 2 games to none.

He's Detroit's Hot Wing by Buffalo Wild Wings!

Spend more time in Tampa Bay's zone - Much of the play was in Detroit's zone in Game 1. Get the puck in deep. Retrieve loose pucks and apply constant pressure.

Stay out of the box - The Lightning had 7 power play chances on Thursday. That's way too many. The Detroit penalty killers were terrific, but we've got to cut down on penalties today.

Solid goalkeeping - Petr Mrazek was sharp in Game 1. He needs to be razor sharp again. He has to continue to make the timely saves.

Petr Mrazek was dominant in his postseason debut with 44 saves and veteran forward Pavel Datsyuk had his first multi-goal playoff game since 2010, but the Red Wings got beat to the puck too often and found themselves shorthanded seven times.

"We had to use our PK for 14 minutes and that doesn't leave a lot of ice time for your fourth line to get out there," Coach Mike Babcock said. "That was among the several things we have to clean up."

Mrazek made 12 saves in helping the Red Wings kill off all seven Lightning power plays. That continued a troubling trend for Tampa Bay, which led the NHL during the regular season at 3.16 goals per game, but finished in the middle of the pack with a power play that clicked at 18.8 percent, tied for 13th in the League.

Coach Babcock expects there to be no line-up changes in Game 2 this afternoon.
