Kyle Quincey will make his return to Motown tonight after Ken Holland fixed the only mistake he has ever made as a GM, when he kept Meech and let Quincey get pulled off waivers. Quincey will also play the point on the 2nd power play unit.

The buzz over the last few days is that the Canucks are sure they will end the Wings home win streak tonight. If the Wings show up and dominate like they have the last 23 home games, then there should be no problem sending the Canucks packing. If they play the kind of Hockey they played Tuesday in Chicago, then we are in trouble.

Vancouver has the best power play in the league, and is 2nd on the road. Detroit needs to stay out of the box. Vancouver has a lot of aspiring actors that can draw penalties on par with the late 90's Avs.

Smart hockey wins this one.
