Keys to the Game

  1. Endurance: not just for the players, but for you! It’s Vegas. Their Twitter gimmicks, a late-night start for the eastern timezone gang, the Wings on a losing streak playing a strong team. All this combines to a potential for Wings fans to be feeling (Mickey Redmond voice) SOUR. Pace yourself, and if you need to go to bed and sleep/sulk it’s ok.
  2. The usual suspects. This is a wake-up call for the special teams. Penalty kill, do your job. Powerplay, do the thing. Husso we need you to be your best HUUUUSSSSSS.
  3. Gimme a break. Break me off a piece of that good puck luck. We don’t need Luck to be a lady tonight, we just need Luck to be sick of Vegas.
