What is the bigger storyline tonight? The return of Alex Biega or the absence of Marky?

Maybe it should be the relevance of the number 3 tonight.

The Red Wings have three wins.

The Canucks are looking for their 3rd win.

Biega is wearing #3

Each of the past 3 meetings have ended 3-2. (Vancouver won the last one)

There are 3 periods of hockey. (forget OT)

I could drink 3 beers.

Tim Schaller has 0 goals. Had to add that one in.

These early season games are the ones that really determine if the Canucks will be talking playoffs in January or draft pick. They need Demko to shut the door and they need schaller to pick this tema up on his back and dominate the game.

Too much?

Who cares!
