Keys to the Game

1. Goal Support

I think that scoring six goals again would give Detroit a good chance to win the game. I’m not sure Greiss knew what to do with himself with the team in front of him scoring more than once. Let’s help him get used to that with more goal support tonight.

2. Set the tone

The last game that Detroit played against Nashville was a 7-1 drubbing. Keeping Nashville off the board early will help to avoid that “here we go again” feeling.

3. Take advantage of the Nashville PK

Nashville’s PK is really bad.
