PK Must Be Good Again - The Blues have 7 PPG in 3 games against the Wings this year. Detroit was perfect on the Penalty Kill last game against LA, so they need to pick up where they left off.
Dictate the Play - Set the tone early! The struggling Blues will come out firing, especially in the first 10 minutes of the game. The Wings need to feed off the crowd and come out strong.
Be Strong Between the Pipes - The Red Wings goalies have been outstanding, giving up only 4 goals in the last 3 games. They need good goalkeeping again tonight and good defense in front of Howie.
