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!

Who got the 3 stars? Center ice cut out just after the horn.

12 out of 18 points is not bad. For an average team.

I assume a walker for one, a cane for the other and a very quiet elevator ride.

So the player with the only goals of the game is not one of the stars, in your opinion?  He will probably be the first star.

Don’t pick on me—that’s the actual 3 stars.

That’s right. A shutout! How did that get overlooked? Just the prospect of a solid win in regulation was enough to make me giddy.

Torts is busy not giving the Wings any credit. Classless comments regarding his players. Wasn’t he brought in to make improvements with the team he is coaching?  Fire the Coach.

Caught the highlights on on XBL and, heh, just about every highlight was a PP or PK situation…even Abber’s sensational empty netter.  The first goal of the game?  Dear Gord, it was orgasmic.

Moving on to Dale Tallon and the “open for business” Miami Panthers.

Uber YouTube Wings fan, awood, has posted his 19-plus minute highlights video of the win over the ‘Nucks.  What a clusterfuch of an officiated game.  That’s twice in two nights.

All hail awood.
