Get the Lead - It's too difficult and taxing to play from behind, especially in the playoffs. Start early and get going in the offensive zone from puck drop.
Shoot the Puck - Simply put, you can't score if you don't put the puck on net. Detroit needs to generate more offense, which means getting more than 22 shots on goal. Shoot the puck, get rebounds, cycle well and get to the front of the net.Get the Puck Out of the Defensive Zone
- During the team's four game win streak, the defense got the puck to the forwards and sent them on their way. This is key to generating offense and spending less time in the defensive zone.
