RAM Keys to the Game with Ken Kal

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings

Tighten up - The Wings need to play better defensively. The team has been able to outscore their mistakes lately, but Tampa Bay has the most goals in the NHL. Detroit will need to play better on the defensive end and in front of Mrazek.

Improve the penalty kill - This means stay out of the box, especially against a potent offensive attacking team like the Lightning. Wings have given up too many pp goals of late.

Win the goaltending battle - Petr Mrazek has given up 11 goals in his last 3 games. That number needs to go South. With that said, when the game is on the line, he competes hard and usually finds a way to win. He's 5-0 since Howard went down with a groin injury. He needs to outduel Ben Bishop tonight, which is never easy.
