The Detroit Red Wings outlasted the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup, but the Wings will need a blueprint to make a deep run in the Stanley Cup playoffs and not flame out after the first game or first series.

The Red Wings did a lot of good things in their 1-0 Game 1 win against Boston, but some of those things were "a first" for the Red Wings, as far as recent memory is concerned.

Here are six keys to a blueprint for a deep playoff run for the Detroit Red Wings.

 

Note: Each "key" is something that Detroit did well in Game 1 and will continue to have to do well in order to move on in the playoffs.
