Preview: Zetterberg, Datsyuk take on Sedins, Kesler in Vancouver
The Vancouver Canucks look for their fifth straight win on Wednesday night, when they host the suddenly Eastern Conference-based Detroit Red Wings at Rogers Arena.
On Monday, the Sedin twins and Ryan Kesler dominated Washington and their top line of Alex Ovechkin. Tonight, that line should expect to get some looks against the Wings' dynamic duo of captain Henrik Zetterberg and the uncheckable Pavel Datsyuk, whose success against the Canucks has been well-documented.
The Sedins and Kesler have been playing over 23 minutes of hockey a game lately, so a meeting of immortals is possible.
"It's a lot of fun playing against the top guys," Daniel Sedin said. "(Kesler's) good on the forecheck, great skater, he brings a lot to the table."
Former Canuck Todd Bertuzzi is also expected to slot in on Detroit's top line next to Z-Berg and Datsyuk, according to NHL.com.
