The Detroit Red Wings will host the Vancouver Canucks, on Wednesday, at Joe Louis Arena.

The Detroit Red Wings are always a team with great offense, defense and nothings different this year. Detroit’s coming off a road trip that had a 3-1 win record and their happy to be home where they’re 3-1. Henrik Zetterberg is by far the best producer for the Wings with 17 points and he leads with 42 shots on net. When you shoot that much your bound to score. The only things the Wings need to work on are their power play. Their defense is tops at blocking shots and killing penalties. Goalie Dominik Hasek is 3-3 with a 2.79 GAA.

The Vancouver Canucks are in trouble this year and they know it. They can’t seem to stay out of the penalty box, thay can’t win face offs and goaltender Roberto Luongo is anything but spectacular. He’s currently 3-5 with a 3.00 GAA. In fact in 8 games he’s let in 28 goals. The only two things going for the Canucks is their power play which seems to be the only way they can score and their 3-1 road record.

Bottom Line: The Red Wings have too much offense for a disheveled Canuck defense. Luongo can only hold on so long before the pucks start going in the net. The Canucks will definitely need to stay out of the penalty box. The Red Wings will take this one!
