KEYS TO THE GAME
Shake Off The Rust: Sunday's tune-up will be a return to game speed for the bulk of the players on both sides. Playing hockey can be like riding a bicycle and finding a familiar groove will be a necessity.

Run With The Opportunity: A handful of young players will be given big roles in Sunday's contest. It will be important for them short-term and long-term to embrace the moment and show what they're made of.
