Get into the Canadiens' "D" - Montreal scores a lot, but they give up a lot, too. So far, they've allowed twenty goals in six games. Attack their defensemen and make them work.
Tighten up - Use team speed to shut down Montreal's offense. Take away their time and space.Stay out of the box, and be strong on the penalty kill
- Montreal has three power play goals in their first six games. Continue to be solid on the PK. Detroit is a perfect 17/17 on the PK, one of only two teams to not allow a power play goal. They must be strong again tonight.
