Keys to the Game

Build off Tuesday

The kind of pace and structure from Tuesday will be crucial to staying in this one. Even then there are going to be breakdowns and responding to them will say a lot about whether this team is building that elusive identity we’ve been hoping for.

Powerplay Success

I’m stealing a key from the last GDU.  The putrid PP is all the way up to just bad now that Detroit has been humming with the man advantage. they won’t get many chances, so capitalizing will go a long way.

Play Physical

Tampa doesn’t like getting hit.  Nobody likes getting hit. Hit them.
