Comerica Bank Game Day Preview - Vancouver
Detroit Red Wings vs. Vancouver Canucks

POSTED ON Wednesday, 10.30.2013 / 12:30 PM

Keep the Puck in the Offensive Zone - Detroit needs to get shots on goal, retrieve loose pucks, and get multiple chances to score. When we don't keep the puck in the offensive zone, we put a lot of miles on our defensemen.

Be Better Defensively - Limit the turnovers and take care of the puck, especially in the defensive zone. The Wings need to play two-way hockey for the whole game.

Get Back to the Basics - Don't try to do it all your teammates and play a five-man unit!

After a promising start to the season, Detroit will look to bounce back from a recent slump against a rolling Vancouver team. Little has come easy for the Red Wings over the past four games, who have earned just two points during that stretch.

"We need to get better as a team," said coach Babcock. "We can be way better as a team than we have been, but I don't think we're that far away."

Tonight, on game one of the four-game Canada swing, the Wings will look to get back on the right track in Vancouver.

"It's going to be a fun matchup," said Henrik Zetterberg. "We have to play better in our own end, tighten up, but we've been working on it in practice, in video, and hopefully we can play better (tonight)."
