A Bit of Motown

You know, I was somewhat surprised to see that Sean didn't use this picture in the game preview..... (via i108.photobucket.com)

Publisher's note: Relax, everyone, I'm still here.  I just worked 8-hour shifts for the last 4 days, and didn't have the time to post since last week.  However, I now have an easy patch (only the one 4-hour shift tomorrow) until Boxing Day, so there'll be a couple posts from me.

Well, we play in Detroit today.  This game comes at an interesting time for the Western Conference lead, which makes tonight's game a must-win if we want to hold 1st in the West for Christmas.  Of course, this grudge match is between the Canucks, Stars and Red Wings, with Colorado also trying to steal our NW lead.  At the moment, Dallas holds the lead with 45 points, Detroit is 2nd with 44, and Vancouver has 42.  (Colorado is also at 42, but has more games played).  If we win tonight, we can tie Detroit at 44, and tomorrow will have all 3 playing their last games before Christmas.  If we lose tonight, though, we will completely lose our chance at the conference lead for Christmas, and we also lose a game in hand on Colorado. In short, we need to win tonight.  So, let's see a Canuck embarass Pavel Datsyuk again.
