I think even Touc will be excited about this one.
Really big game.

Is it really anything other than a midseason game Island? I mean do we not know this Canucks team is as good or better than anyone else already? What can we learn? I just hope we win and that the game is a good exhibition of two talented, smart teams.
From a standings and points perspective, it isn't such a meaningful game. We'll lose to weaker teams later, as will the Wings. For the fans, a Saturday night, HNIC game featuring the top two teams in the league? I'd say it's a pretty big game...

Detroit is pretty banged up. Datsyuk is out. Brad Stuart broke his jaw last night, out indefinitely. Cleary, Filppula and Modano all out.
