I'll be attending this game with the girl. Wings resting up for playoffs but if they can show up like they did the last 20 minutes of Monday's game I forsee a big upset. 2-1 wings. Mursak - Modano (M2) LGW!

i think forth line comes up big with 2 goals and we get one from the top two.

3-1 wings. I need this win. too many of my friends that are vancouver fans have been pre-game trashtalking this one.

id honestly throw ericsson up front for this one. hes got some skill. weve seen it before.

I'd like to the see the Wings that played the 2nd half of the game Monday. If they play like that we'll have a win for sure.

Glad to see the Mursak get in for a while, i'm thinking Hudler gets off the Doritos and on the ice tonight.

I hope Modano gets another goal, I have a feeling we will need some. 5-4 ftw.

I see Jimmy bouncing back quite nicely tonight. A personality on 97.1 the ticket had some harsh words saying Howard hasn't won Detroit a game this year. All he needs to do is watch the last meeting between Detroit and Vancouver.

this personality wouldn't be by the name of "Pat Caputo" now would it?

At least there is no Jason Williams in the lineup to get headshotted by Raffi Torres.

Canucks haven't played in almost a week, they recently lost the #2 faceoff man in the league for the rest of the regular season and playoffs, they haven't played well against Detroit all year AND, Wings are looking to benchmark their playoff readiness in tonight's game...

Canucks should win handily :thumbup:

With those 4 out... a Victory would be the biggest one of the season! Go Wings!

the last time the Wings faced the Canucks was worse imo

Wings were missing Datsyuk,Cleary,Filppula,Modano,Stuart instead of Datsyuk,Franzen,Hudler,Bertuzzi and Canucks were missing Salo as far as significant players go instead of Edler,Malhotra,Samuelsson

DANIEL SEDIN IS NOT PLAYING - his wife is expecting their third child.

This... is not good for either team benchmarking their playoff readiness, too many bodies on both sides missing to get an accurate reading. Lets just all agree now to not watch this game and ignore what ever result might come to pass OK?

DANIEL SEDIN IS NOT PLAYING - his wife is expecting their third child.

Daniel Sedin, the NHL’s leading scorer with 93 points, was scheduled to arrive Tuesday night and will be in the lineup. His wife gave birth Monday.

Defenseman Kevin Bieksa said he will return Wednesday. He has missed 15 games with a broken foot.

Thanks for the GDT, Hockeytown.

I, too, think it'd be cool to see BigRig up front. Doubt it will happen though.

Let's hope for a W.

Hoping for an all out effort in this one (obviously). The effort will be there tonight as Vancouver seems to be one of those teams, like the Wings, that all teams just elevate their game against. Hoping for Flipper to continue that chemistry with Modo. Different day, Howie so let's put it all behind us and have a real solid outing. No predictions, play hard, and don't let up on the gas!!! Clichè machine is in gear ;) GO WINGS!!!!
