Close out 2014 with a bang - This means find ways to score. Detroit is averaging 1.9 goal per game in their last 9 games and that included 6 goals vs Buffalo on Dec 23rd.
Play with the lead - Detroit had to play catch-up hockey in their last 3 games. Teams lose energy when this happens. Score early. Get the crowd into celebration mode early.
Win - Need to keep pace with Montreal and Tampa Bay. Nothing better than closing out 2014 with a "W". Plus the bubbly always tastes better too.
Happy New Year Red Wings Fans! Cheers!
