The Vancouver Canucks, who were thought to be one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup this season, have struggled thanks to inconsistent goaltending, injuries and an uncharacteristically weak power play. The Canucks are looking to rebound after a disappointing loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.

The Minnesota Wild, on the other hand, have seemingly clicked after getting off to a slow start. The Wild, who have won 7 of their last 10 games, have gotten some strong returns from their two marquee free agent pick-ups, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Suter has been particularly impressive and is a front-runner to win the Norris Trophy.

Can the Vancouver Canucks reclaim the division lead, or will the Minnesota Wild continue their recent hot streak?
