The Wings outplayed the Canucks in the first, I feel, but were lucky to come out of the first period with the score tied at 1-1. After killing off a 5-on-3, the Wings couldn't get to daylight on the penalty kill as Filppula (who is playing like horseshit) couldn't win a faceoff.
I liked Datsyuk, Franzen, Abdelkader, Brunner, Emmerton, Nyquist, Zetterberg, Ericsson, Kindl, and myself.
Oh, Tootoo too (heh).
I pretty much only hate Filppula.
