Continue To Play Well Defensively - The Red Wings are getting solid goaltending plus they're playing well in front of their netminders, allowing just 5 goals in their last 4 games. Detroit hasn't allowed a goal in the first two periods of their last four games, and they need to try to repeat that tonight and limit the fresh legs of Edmonton early.
Find Ways To Score - The last four games that the Red Wings have played in were decided by just one goal. They were all 2-1 games. Simply put, Detroit needs to find the back of the net. Bear down on scoring chances and deliver on the Power Play when they get the opportunity.
Limit Edmonton's Speed - The Oilers are a fast team and they generate their speed in the neutral zone. Take away their time and space. Try not to get into a track meet with them, because a north-south game can quickly turn south against a team like Edmonton.
