Red Wings at Lightning: Stanley Cup Playoffs Gameday Updates, Line combinations, Key Match-ups

I'm not going to go too far into analysis or what needs to be done.

Just win the game, or hit the golf course. Plain-and-simple. The Red Wings need to keep their composure, and not fall into a similar situation like they did in game two. You have one job. Do it.

Alexey Marchenko is out, Xavier Ouellet is out. No changes from the last game.
