Keys to the Game:
1. Need more shoot
2. Score on the power play
1. Gus Nyquist has 4 goals this season. However, top 5 player on the team Steve Ott has 5 goals in his last 176 games (including playoffs).
2. Gus Nyquist only knows how to bring it in one dimension. However, top 5 player on the team Steve Ott knows how to bring his impressive set of skills in not just one dimension, but all dimensions, including -- but not limited to -- the 5th dimension, Lego dimensions, the Dark Dimension and, of course, that dimension that James Spader and Kurt Russell go to after passing through the wormhole in Stargate.
Let's Go Red Wings.
