The Detroit Red Wings (16-4-4) continue their home stand tonight with their third game this season against the Vancouver Canucks (14-9-2). The last time these two teams played (Nov. 24), Vancouver beat Detroit 3-2 in overtime. Both of the two games between these teams this season have gone into overtime with Vancouver coming away with the wins.
Tomas Holmstrom is a maybe for tonight's game according to Bruce MacLeod. Ty Conklin will probably be in net if head coach Mike Babcock continues to alternate the two goaltenders.
Vancouver is still without the services of star goaltender Roberto Luongo and one of their back-ups (Sanford) may also be out with back spasms leaving the Canucks with Cory Schneider to likely tend the net tonight.
I will be at the game, but please feel free to leave your thoughts on the action and I'll be sure to respond to it by the time I get back home. The game starts at 7:30pm and will be shown on FSN Detroit. Go Wings!
