Score - Red Wings have just 5 goals in their last 5 games. Need traffic in front of the net. Also hit the net with shots. Force the Av's goalie to make saves.
Skate and keep pace - The Av's are a quick team so are the Red Wings. The track will be fast tonight. Play at a high tempo.
Win the goaltending battle - With Howard out, Petr Mrazek needs to outperform his competitor on the other end of the ice. Mrazek played well in the last game vs NYI. He'll need to do it again tonight.
