Red Wings – Canucks Pregame Notes

I’m sick and it’s a late game tonight, all the makings of some fun.

Jimmy Howard gets back to back starts as the Red Wings visit the Canucks. That’s the first time this has happened all season, as the only other time the Wings even played on consecutive nights Howard started against Anaheim to open the season and Chris Osgood got the nod against the Blackhawks the next night.

Drew Miller will be back in the lineup with no word on who the odd man out will be. Khan suggests Patrick Eaves but with Mike Babcock‘s comments about missing Miller in the PK role last night (a role Eaves also fills) I wouldn’t be shocked if Hudler is back in the press box.

Other than that, it’s been a quiet day.
