After the crappy performance last game, a bounce back would be nice. I am not sure Detroit is the place for a bounce back. Canucks haven't beat Detroit since the 2019-20 season. The Wings have been a good team this year. In fact, they have a real shot at getting into the playoffs for the first time in 8 years. The Canucks haven't lost 2 in a row since November, which is a testament to the players and the coaching staff, and we will see today if Taco was able to get them to learn from their crappy play.

Pius Suter -- Elias Pettersson -- Ilya Mikheyev
Brock Boeser -- J.T. Miller -- Elias Lindholm

Game Day Battle Hymn
There seems to be only one logical choice for the song today. I will accept not arguments.
Early morning weekend games....who loves them! If this post breaks 50 comments, let's call it a win.
Go Canucks Go!
