Weather the storm - Bridgestone Arena is a tough building to win in. The Preds are 26-4-1 at home plus they are coming off a loss to Minnesota. They're gonna be fired up. Will be a hornets' nest today.
Get to the front of the net - Goalie Pekka Rinne is one of the best in the NHL. We need to screen him and get shots through, which is tough to do because their defense is solid. They don't give up a lot of goals.
Win the special teams battle - Take advantage of these situations. The Red Wings are better in the PP and PL categories. They'll need to excel in these areas this afternoon.
