-the Sedins-Burrows line dominated (9 points for the 3 combined)
-the Blackhawks' frustration grew increasingly until Dustin Byfuglien gave Luongo a jab after a flubbed opportunity and a line brawl broke out.
-it's fair to say Hawks fans hate Burrows after that hair-pulling incident.
I hate Burish and Eager just because they exist. I hate Martin Havlat because he's so damned good. He looked like he was going to tear us apart tonight, but faded as the game went on.
-Kevin Bieksa played a sickeningly great game tonight. He was not only stealing the puck from Hawks in his zone repeatedly, but he also stood up / took one for his goalie / team in the brawl.
"Boys will be boys" said Vigneault post game, not biting on any reporter attempts to get him to speak ill of the Hawks.
-this would make an excellent playoff series, but I'd still prefer the Canucks to catch the Flames. They are 1 point away once again.
