Canucks Visit Joe Louis Arena Tonight

Enough Olympic talk, enough injury talk, enough goalie talk and defensive talk too.

Focus on the game tonight, play a full game and come away with 2 points any way you can.

I said a few games ago the Wings needed 7 out of a possible 10 points and they have 3 at this point.

A win tonight gives them 5 which means they can get away with collecting at least two points while playing the two teams in Florida.

Tonight is key, Vancouver has been playing badly and the Wings will face Eddie Lack in goal tonight.

Get the power play working, get to the net and skate every shift boys.

With that, it's a live blog bitches!

Vancouver gets their first legitimate power play of the game. But seriously, that embellishment shit has got to go.

Oh no, Westie, these guys are awesome shit detectors! It’s hockey penalties they suck at calling. See, no call on Cannucks for spearing Jimmah.

This year in particular the Wings seem to let teams hang around.  No skate to throat mentality anymore.
