Game Day Post: Canucks at Wings

It's a classic match-up of two teams that has started the season differently. The Vancouver Canucks have struggled to regain the disciplined, hardworking game they played for most of last year. On the other hand, the Detroit Red Wings are near the top of the Western Conference again. One team is firing on all cylinders; the other is not.

There may be some good news for the Canucks as Sami Salo is almost ready to return to the lineup. He may return tonight or he may return on Friday. When he does, it'll hopefully do a couple of things: he'll hopefully help Mattias Ohlund, who has really struggled without his regular defensive partner, and also, move Mike Weaver to Manitoba. Meanwhile, Kevin Bieksa is about to be a daddy for the first time and may miss tonight's game.

My keys to the game:
  • Tighten up defensively.
  • Don't give the Wings too many powerplays.
  • Put some pucks on Hasek.
