Keys to the Game
1. Quicker puck decisions
The overall flow with the puck has been inconsistent but last night the Wings were just a split second too late with the right decisions with the puck. The extra time taken can protect against mistakes, but it also gives defenses all the time they need to shut off the really good lanes.
2. Support your goalie
Just two goals for Greiss. Get more for Bernier like usual.
3. Just have fun
If you’re playing for next season or even your job, you might as well enjoy this last stretch of the season. I got nothing else. If you have fun maybe we will too.
