Start On Time - Early games, especially ones that start at noon, are tough on players. The team that gets out of the starting gate the quickest will have the advantage.
Score - Detroit has two goals in their last two games. They need to find a way to turn on the red light on a more consistent basis. When there is a grade-A scoring chance, bury the puck.
Control the Puck - The best defense is to have the puck more than your opponent. Win faceoffs, win battles, get rebounds and convert on scoring chances.
