Game Day Updates
Tyler Bertuzzi spotting at morning skate today. Don’t get too excited, but good to see him out there a little bit. #LGRW— Daniella Bruce (@daniellabruce_) April 6, 2021
I don’t know if this officially means we’re starting the “Bertuzzi has to skate for a week before he’s back” countdown, but fingers crossed.
#RedWings Blashill said Bernier, Ryan and Gagner remain out tonight but expects all three to be available Thursday. A few others are banged up and will be game-time decisions tonight vs. Nashville (7:30).— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) April 6, 2021
Arvidsson did not skate in practice for tonight's game against Detroit. Michael McCarron and Rem Pitlick rotated on the right wing opposite Eeli Tolvanen and centered by Ryan Johansen. I have to think Pitlick gets a shot tonight. #Preds @CrazyCharlie615 @OnTheForecheck— Shaun C. Smith (@SCSOTF) April 6, 2021

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.
