2010 NHL Playoffs: What Detroit Needs To Do To Win Game Seven

I am too accustomed to winning.

Detroit is famous for some first round let downs—i.e. vs Anaheim, vs Edmonton, vs LA Kings.

But the last three years, I have seen my team fall no shorter than round three and I am not prepared to see that this year. They have battled too much during the year with injuries and inconsistency.

Detroit better not lose Game 7 Tuesday night in Phoenix. 

A few things come to mind as far as what the Wings will need to do to beat the never-say-never Coyotes.

And I will think of the three main things that Detroit will need to fix for Game 7 if they plan on seeing hockey past Tuesday.

3. Jimmy Howard HAS to put everything on the line

In Game's 4 and 5, Howard looked unbeatable and he stood on his head.

He saved a combined 59 out 60 shots faced in the two games as the Wings went on to tie the series in Game 4 with Howard's shutout, and take the lead in the series in Game 5 on Howard's one allowed goal.

Howard, we need another performance like those.

You did great coming back from Game 3's loss to post a shut out in Game 4.
