Keys to the Game

1. Stay UnDuclair’d

Ottawa’s leading goal-scorer and points-getter has four of his 21 goals this season in the previous two games he’s played the Wings. I think they should find a way to keep him from scoring two goals in this one.

2. Entertain the Crowd

I really enjoyed how the third period against Montreal went and thought the crowd had a lot of fun from what I could hear coming out of the stands on Tuesday. Those people bothering to spend their Friday night at the Pizzarena deserve some fun. Give it to them.

3. No Shorthanded goals against

Seriously. Cut that shit out.
