Salo is in and Bieksa is out (his wife is giving birth, he hasn't finally decided to take time off to heal).
This is by far the biggest test of the season, so get ready to hear the words "gut check time" repeated ad nauseum until puck drop. We need a solid start AND SIXTY FULL MINUTES OF PLAY to win this one. Zetterberg leads the league in points, so he has to be stopped at all costs. Mitchell needs to be on form or we're toast.
Can we pull it off? Maybe, unfortunately I'm feeling pessimistic today so I say 4-1 Wings, Datsyuk with a pair, Cooke with our only goal.
GO CANUCKS GO
