Generally, the Canucks and Red Wings are close in most of the statistical categories above. Hell, even the games played between the 2 teams at Rogers Arena are close games. Detroit holds a 3-1-1 advantage over Vancouver in their last 5 games in Van. But one big

difference between this match and the one vs the Wild last game is that Detroit has the firepower to make you pay if you cough the puck up. Got that Hammer and Sulzer?
