Detroit vs Vancouver: Sedin Twins vs Euro Twins

A late pregame for an equally late game. Detroit and Vancouver clash tonight in a battle for west supremacy. Let’s hope Ryan Kessler can quit crying about Kronwall long enough to play some real hockey.

Puck drops at 10 pm on FSD

This could very well be a preview of this years western conference final, and both teams will be playing this game as if the season depends on it. Vancouver just dispatched the Blackhawks Wednesday night 3-2 in overtime, while Detroit downed the Flames 3-1.

Quick pregame tonight as I am still living out of boxes. Keep it fast, physical and play a full 60 minutes.

LGRW!
