Vancouver Canucks vs. Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings were one of the "original six" teams when the Canucks joined the NHL in 1970-71. Back then, Detroit was one of the better teams in the league and the Canucks rarely won. By the mid 1970s, the Red Wings had fallen on hard times and the Canucks often defeated the team from the Motor City. In recent years, Detroit has returned to the upper echelon of the league and Canuck wins are uncommon. The Wings and Canucks met for the first time in the playoffs during 2002.

Historical Notes: Murray Hall was the first Canuck to score against the Wings ... Dennis Kearns became the first Canuck to play in 500 games during a game in Detroit (November 8, 1978) ... The Canucks were once awarded two penalty shots in one period and they scored on both of them (February 11, 1982) ... Petri Skriko recorded his first hat trick against Greg Stefan (November 19, 1985) ... The Canucks once overcame a 3-0 third period deficit to win 4-3 in overtime (February 18, 2003) ... Daniel Sedin scored all four goals in a 4-2 win over the Wings (February 24, 2004) ... Trevor Linden became the first player to score 300 career goals as a Canuck during a game against the Wings (October 5, 2006).
