Landon Ferraro scored his fist NHL career goal on April 11th in Detroit's regular-season finale victory over the Hurricanes, 2-0. Ferraro's hard work has shown Coach Babcock that he belongs in the post-season line-up as he's set to make his debut tonight in Tampa. 

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

"They have a lot of skill on their team. We talked about it and
it's about not giving them time and not turing the puck over
because they transition really fast." - Jonathan Ericsson

"It's the playoffs, thats why its so fun to play and be a part of it. Especially to not play the first day, you can sit at the hotel and watch games and get pumped up for your game. It's a special feeling
and we look forward to it every year." - Henrik Zetterberg

Weather the storm - Players on both sides will be amped up for the start of the series. The crowd will be into it as well. Be patient and play with poise.

Solid goal keeping - This will be Mrazek's first NHL playoff game, but he helped the Griffins win a Calder Cup. He needs to make he big saves to keep the Red Wings on the Game, Tampa bay is an explosive team.

Tighten up - The Lighting were the highest scoring team during the regular season. Detroit needs to limit their shots on goal. Playing in the Lightning end for the majority of the game will keep them at bay.
