Get the Legs Going Early - The team arrived back in Detroit around 1 AM; Florida was in town resting last night. Detroit needs to find the energy early and get off to a great start.
Mule Kick - Franzen has 9 points in his last 6 games. He needs to continue to lead offensively, especially with Datsyuk and Zetterberg out with injuries.Tighten up the Penalty Kill
- The Red Wings went 4 games without allowing a PP goal. However, they allowed 4 PPGs in their last 7 times short. They need to buckle down, clear the puck, and be better shorthanded.
