Play with Energy - The first game back home after a long road trip is never easy. Detroit has to be mentally tough and fight off the fatigue factor.
Control the Neutral Zone - This is where the Hawks generate most of their speed. The Wings need to slow them down here by taking away their time and space.
Win The Special Teams Battle - Both games against Chicago have been one goal games. A PP goal could be the difference between winning and losing. The Wings need to be disciplined and stay out of the box, and take advantage of PP opportunities when they get them.
