Niklas Kronwall did not skate today, and has a mild concussion, but seemed optimistic about a near return.

Be Disciplined - Detroit needs to stay out of the penalty box. Play hard, but don't take penalties.

Be Competitive - The team burned a ton of energy against Colorado, especially the defense with the injury to Kronwall. Fatigue could be a factor. We need to be mentally tough to get over that.

Have a Balanced Attack - All fourth lines need to contribute. Phoenix doesn't give you much, so the Wings need to make the most of their chances.

Detroit has won four in a row, including its past three with backup goalie Jonas Gustavsson in for the injured Jimmy Howard, since losing him the last time these two teams met on Oct. 10.

Gustavsson has been outstanding, posting a 1.67 goals-against average and .953 save percentage in his three starts. He had 38 saves in Detroit's 4-2 win against the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.

"You've got to give [Gustavsson] credit. He could win first star three nights in a row," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said after the win in Denver. "I thought he played great."

But the win was costly for Detroit. Defenseman Niklas Kronwall sustained a concussion on a hit from behind by Colorado forward Cody McLeod.

While Kronner will be out tonight, he was moving all extremities and accompanied the team to Phoenix; the Wings are hopeful he'll be able to return soon.
