Canucks-Blackhawks Game 4 preview
Ben Eager nails Rick Rypien. Rypien, Alain Vigneault and other Canucks thought the hit was late and warranted a suspension. The NHL ruled today that no suspension was necessary. Eager quipped: "It was nothing," he said. "It was a big hit. There's big hits in the playoffs. It seems when ever there is a big hit these days everyone is talking suspension."
OK, I've been a "tad" negative after last night's game. In the end the Canucks rebounded after the Hawks tied it. I think this picture sums up the moment perfectly when Salo made it 4-3 late in the 3rd! Look at that dejected Hawks bench! Love it! I'm loving Salo too. The guy is a force out there when one of his many body parts doesn't keep him out of the lineup. Image is by Darryl Dyck of AP.
