Detroit has been on fire lately, finding the back of the net 35 times in their past 10 games. The power play continues to roll, as well. After scoring five goals in their first 46 man-advantages (10.9 percent), the Red Wings have scored 15 power-play goals in their past 47 chances (31.9 percent). This surge of offense comes at a good time, as a red hot Vancouver Canucks team pays a visit to the Motor City in today's 2:00 PM matinee showdown.
Detroit, which might reunite Zetterberg with forward Pavel Datsyuk on the top line, might also get another piece back on the blue line, as Brendan Smith seems to destined to return from a hand infection. With Smitty back in the lineup, Detroit will go for their fourth straight victory today at The Joe.
