TV: NHL Network, TSN

The Wings take on Vancouver at Joe Louis Arena tonight (7:30 p.m. ET) in attempt to string together a couple of points post-Olympic break. Speaking of Olympics, the gold medalist goalie Roberto Luongo starts in net tonight for Vancouver while the Wings Jimmy Howard will be in the blue paint.

Detroit looked impressive considering the time off during the Olympics in their 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The Wings were connecting on a lot of passes and making good paths to the net. For Detroit to be successful again they need to control the puck and tempo while trying to make space in the middle of the ice for the attack.

Game is at 7:30 p.m. and will air on the NHL Network (picking up the hometown FS-Detroit feed) and TSN.
