Game Preview / Gamethread #52: Canucks vs Red Wings

February 10, 2024
- Westy

CANUCKS (34-12-5) at RED WINGS (26-18-6)

1 p.m. ET; BSDET, SNP

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

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!


Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
