Keys to the Game

  • Finish: Whether it’s finding a way to turn a prime scoring chance into a goal or playing the entire 60 minutes to turn a good performance into a win, it’s time to start earning something to show for the past few weeks’ worth of solid hockey.
  • Let the Top Line Cook: It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the Wings’ top line this year, but Larkin, Raymond, and current #1 LW Michael Rasmussen are starting to heat up a bit. Against a weak Sharks’ goaltending and defense (actual defense) unit, there are going to be plenty of opportunities for that trio to heat up again.
