Be on the Attack - Keep sustained pressure in the offensive zone and play with an edge to create scoring chances.

Win the Faceoff Battle - When you control the faceoffs, you control the puck and that allows you to dictate the style of play.

Play Solid Defensively - The Wings have had trouble scoring as of late, so when that happens, it's important to play tight on D, especially in your own zone and in net.

Now that Detroit has moved to the Eastern Conference, the Red Wings and Flames will face each other just twice each season. The two teams kick off their abbreviated season  series Friday with each trying to pull itself out of the logjam in its respective divisions.

The Red Wings come to Calgary off a much-needed win against the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday. After mustering two points (0-1-2) during a three-game homestand, Detroit opened its road trip through Western Canada by edging the Canucks 2-1 to snap a four-game skid.

The Red Wings limited Vancouver to 20 shots against Jimmy Howard by playing the kind of puck-possession game coach Mike Babcock has been preaching.

"We had the puck a lot more because we executed out of our defensive zone fast, we didn't waste a lot of time in there and we got through neutral zone, and in the end had way more puck possession because of it and that's the right way to play," Babcock said. "(Vancouver) was a good step for our team. Now we've got to match it."

Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can watch tonight's 9:00 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit-Plus or listen in on AM 1270.

The Wings buckled down tonight, played a smart two-way game and playing strong in both zones. Alfie and Tatar scored in the second and Howie was fantastic all night as the Wings won, 2-1, in Vancouver.

That's for tuning in to our Game Day Blog...tune in Friday when we head to Calgary!
