Players that Must Improve to Dig Their Teams Out of a Hole

From Craig Custance at the Sporting News:

“Countless teams have lost the first two games on the road and still won the series,” Red Wings defenseman Brad Stuart told Sporting News. “I don’t think we’re looking at it as that big a deal. We have to win our home games. That’s what it all comes down to in the next couple games here.”

To complete comebacks after digging an early hole, these five players must improve moving forward for their teams:

1. Johan Franzen, Red Wings. He’s not 100 percent because of a bum ankle, but Franzen has established himself as one of the game’s best producers when the stakes are highest. That version of Franzen must emerge for the Red Wings to dig out of a hole after losing their series’ first two games in San Jose.
