Since it worked so well last night, we're going with more pre-game notes tonight as the Red Wings visit the Vancouver Canucks.

 

As I noted via Twitter earlier today, the Red Wings are 12-17-4 all-time in the third game of a Western Canadian road trip.  They're 4-5-3 all-time when that third game is in Vancouver.

 

By my count the Wings are unbeaten, however, when playing a team wearing throwback jerseys to an era before the founding of the NHL.  The Canucks will be dressed as the 1915 Vancouver Millionaires of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, that year's Stanley Cup Champions.

 

Detroit will be without defenseman Kyle Quincey, who suffered a broken cheekbone last night in Edmonton.  Ian White will take his spot in the lineup.

 

No other roster changes are expected.  Jimmy Howard will get the start for the second consecutive night.

 

Game time is 10:00 on FSD+, CBC and NHLN.

Nyquist out, Eaves back in.  Ugh.

Way to play the two-on-one, Kronner.  Completely failed to take away the pass.

A goal six seconds in and another off the injured foot of the dedicated team goat.  This game is stupid.

Wings survive the first.  Can't really put it any differently.

Howard's save on Burrows from the first is in the multimedia section now.

Road power play is on fire. Great puck control.

Luongo shouldn't have gotten caught moving there, should have been square to the shot. Soft goal.

Shocked that they counted that.  Another Datsyuk-off-Abdelkader goal.

Small sample size got a little bigger, Wings remain unbeaten against teams in pre-NHL throwback jerseys.
