Detroit vs Vancouver: Red Hot Wings Host Crashing Canucks

Detroit vs Vancouver: Red Hot Wings Host Crashing Canucks

Detroit looks to rebound after point streak was snapped

Detroit (16-9-6) looks to get back on a roll after their 13-game point streak was snapped during a 2-1 loss at home to the Buffalo Sabres. Following a sluggish 4-5-1 season start, the Red Wings have earned at least one point in 17 of their last 21 games and eleven of those matches have gone into extra time. Involved in a very tight race, second to sixth place are separated by just three points, Detroit and Boston are tied for second in the Atlantic Division. The Red Wings went 8-0-5 during their 13-game point run outscoring their opponents 33-22 in the wins while getting outscored 13-8 during five extra time losses. Detroit is 7-1-2 vs Vancouver recently, outscoring the Canucks 30-21, including a 3-2 (OT) come from behind win in Vancouver back on October 25. 

Wounded Canucks are slowly sliding towards the Pacific Division basement

Sporting a 9-8-7 record at the end of November, Vancouver has fallen flat in December as the Canucks are on a 2-5-1 slide this month. The bad news is Vancouver has fallen into sixth place in the Pacific Division – the good news is the Canucks are just three points out of second place. The offense is still M.I.A. as the Canucks have scored two goals or less in 13 if their last 18 contest and they were shutout three times during their last six matches. The blueprint a victory versus Vancouver is containing the Sedin twins as Daniel (34) and Henrick (31) have posted 65 of the Canucks 216 points (30%) this season. Vancouver plays the fourth match of a six-game road trip after dropping the first three by a 12-2 margin - including a 2-0 shutout loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia last night. Henrik Sedin left that contest and is now listed as OUT due to a “lower-body” injury. That’s horrible news for brother Daniel and the entire ‘Nucks already slumbering offense.

Red Wings vs Canucks NHL Call: Jimmy Howard (7-4-3 GAA 2.29) faces Ryan Miller (9-11-6 GAA 2.70) in the netminding match-up. Detroit continues the rare practice of alternating Howard and Petr Mrazek on a game-to-game basis. Howard was decent stopping 73 of the 78 shots he faced in his last two starts but the Wings lost 3-2 in extra time to the Capitals and Devils. Miller’s been in meltdown mode recently as he gave up four goals during a 4-0 loss in Chicago last Sunday and he was pulled after giving up six goals over two periods as the Canucks were whacked 6-2 by the Wild in Minnesota on Tuesday.
