Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said the biggest difference in his team the past two games from earlier in the season has been its compete level.
"We better come out today ready to compete and win puck battles and puck races," Blashill said. "I think we've been a good team the last couple of games, we've been in position to win games and we've won them. Prior to that we didn't win them. Confidence matters and the more you win the more confidence you have and the better you feel about yourself. But the only way you keep it is to make sure you're playing with the same kind of drive and competition level."
