The Blackhawks come into this one looking to get their third consecutive win on the Circus Trip, and sixth in seven games. The Canucks have been a bit of a surprise this season, performing better than most predicted. This is a matchup featuring 2 former playoff rivals, so there's sure to be some adrenaline running.
The 'Hawks have been hot of late, and things seem to be coming together. Marian Hossa broke out of his scoring slump a bit with 4 points last night, so we will see if that carries over into tonight. Hockey is more fun when he's playing well, so hopefully last night was only a sign of things to come.
Here's the first game thread of the night! Go 'Hawks!
