My two favorite teams playing each other :wub: I hope this one goes to OT (not a shoot out) because even though I will never ever cheer against my beloved Canucks BUT Detroit needs points so this way both my teams get points and Van gets the win and everything is awesome.

It probably will be 3-1 Canucks though. Sedin, Kesler, Raymond.

I respect your prediction, but I think the Red Wings will score more than just one goal with the presence of Zetterberg and Datsyuk.

True but Detroit also hasn't been playing to their usual awesomeness (it kind makes me sad as a redwings fan but happy as a Canuck fan cause I hate it when Detroit and Van face each other in the playoffs) and Luuuu has been really good lately so that is why i think Van will win 3-1. Like I said earlier I kind of hope Van wins in OT so I wouldn't be against a 4-3 OT win. I just don't see Detroit getting past Luuu when he is playing this good. Then again our defense has been dreadful so you never know........

I would think that way, if Vancouver were facing Nashville, Chicago, or NW division teams. However, Detroit is unique in that they have fluent offense, thereby producing more goals than we anticipate.

Yes, true again and with the way that Van's defense has been playing I am starting to wonder if it is even possible to defeat the Redwings in Regulation. Perhaps I will just stick by my Original OT prediction but knowing the Canucks they probably will end up going to a SO................... I am still going to choose VAN for the win even though we are dreadful in shootouts.

5-2. i think the red wings will be tired with the early start and playing last night, plus Gustavsson will be in net.

I just realized that this will be the First Detroit game I get to watch this season and its against Vancouver............awesome......

What I think will happen is Vancouver has a good chance of winning but the game will likely be a high-scoring game, such as 4-2 or 5-3. Our defensive units have been sub-par in their effectiveness lately, so I am assuming 2-3 goals will be allowed tomorrow afternoon.

Too bad I won't be able to watch the game tomorrow afternoon.

I just checked the score for Tonights/last nights's Detroit game via their FB page ( I do not have NHL Center Ice) and saw that they won 4-0 against the Preds so I think you may be right about the game being high scoring. It will be interesting if Lu is in net for Van since had a shootout their previous game and both those shoot outs were against the same team.

The fact that its an early start after playing tonight might factor into Vancouver winning this one. I still think it will be a lot closer then 5-2 though that may just be wishful thinking since I am also a Redwings fan.

The Canucks should come out on top here, what with the Wings on the second game of a back to back and given their average defense corps playing in front of their backup goalie. Never underestimate a team that has Datsyuk playing for them, but I'm feeling a 4-2 Nucks win. Burr, Kass, Juice and Lappy for us, Datsyuk x2 for them. Also, I get the feeling Datsyuk is gonna make Eddie look like an idiot on one of the goals.
