Three Keys to the Game

Stay out of the Box

Edmonton likely isn’t going to score on half their PP opportunities all season but there’s no reason to give them chances.

Don’t Play Run & Gun

Detroit doesn’t have the firepower to keep up offensively if both teams decide to play “we hate our goalie”. They don’t necessarily have to play a shell, but they’ll need to be smart with the gambles they take on the ice.

Exploit the Defense

Duncan Keith sucks now. Score a million on him.
