Get the lead - The team who scored first has won 5 of the 6 games in the series. This by no means guarantees a win however it's better playing with the lead than trying to play catch up hockey.
Play outstanding team defense - There will be a lot of pressure on the Detroit defense especially without Nik Kronwall in the line up. The team really needs to pull together and have a solid game.
Petr the great - Mrazek stopped 44 shots in game 1, he posted shutouts in games 3 & 5, and he needs to be solid tonight. If there's going to be a game where your goaltender wins it for you, then tonight is that night. He needs to be brilliant.
