Keys to the Game

1. Pretend you’re playing the Hurricanes

Two straight really solid games by the Red Wings has me spoiled. Is it really too much to ask to not look like ass against the Blackhawks?

2. Count on the guy wearing #15 to score

I know that hasn’t worked out so well for us in the recent past, but I’ve got a good feeling about this one.

3. Support the Goalie

Both ends of the ice this time. Score a lot and don’t allow many chances.
