Start Fast - The Canucks haven't played since Friday. They are well rested and the Red Wings used a lot of energy against Washington. They'll need to fight the fatigue tonight.
Pressure Their Defense - Christopher Tanev and Kevin Bieksa are out. Take advantage of this. Force their D to turn the puck over. Sheahan's Line Must Produce
- His line has been terrific, and it gives Detroit more balanced scoring. They'll need to get that same effort and production tonight.
