The Detroit Red Wings head to Vancouver to take on the Canucks at 10:00 p.m. EDT.
Detroit is coming off of a big win last night to the Edmonton Oilers. Pavel Datsyuk was incredible all game and ended the Wings three game slide and his 11 game goal drought with the help of Johan Franzen. Detroit will not be able to come out flat against the Canucks though as they are looking for revenge against the Wings.
The Canucks and Roberto Luongo are going to be ready for tonight’s game and looking to beat up the Wings after losing 8 – 3 against them earlier in the season. Vancouver is coming off of a big win against Nashville and with a days rest should come into the game well rested. Detroit will have to tighten their defense and not allow Henrik and Daniel to get comforatble.
After a stunning performance by Jimmy Howard against the Oilers, he receives the start in net tonight.
The addition of Gustav Nyquist has been a little underwhelming so far, but he showed flashes of his skill last night.
Pavel Datsyuk is just amazing, every time I think he could not do any more to amaze me he does.
A plea from a blogger – Last night Ken Daniels said “Hasekian,” please do not let this become a thing now.
Prediction: After a big win in Edmonton, I think the Wings come into this game flat. Vancouver wins 2-1.
