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!

Gold: Russia
Silver: Any team but USA
Bronze: Any team but USA

Putin and his buddies will not allow any other result. You think NHL officiating is bad? Wait til you see the medal round games that Russia plays. If I was a ref in those games I think I’d call in sick.

My understanding is that Putin will award the Gold Medals bare-chested at center ice.
