Vancouver Canucks: Ready for road weary Wings

After a losing run that saw the Canucks drop six of seven games, Vancouver has now won two straight contests. The ‘Nukes defeated the Blue Jackets 2-1 in a shootout in Columbus on Tuesday and then returned home to whack the Predators 7-4 on Thursday night. Vancouver holds a tenuous two point lead over the Minnesota Wild in the Pacific Division title chase.

Detroit Red Wings: Back at it after OT win in Edmonton last night

Stuck in a mini “reload’ season, Detroit rolls in Vancouver after a 3-2 overtime win against the Edmonton Oilers last night. Coming off a 5-2 loss in Calgary on Wednesday, the Wings were down 2-0 after two periods to the Oilers before mounting a comeback that was capped by a brilliant goal by Pavel Datsyuk in OT. This is the Red Wings third road game in four nights.
