Pretty easy storyline for this one. The struggling Canucks head into a blood thirsty United Center against a Hawks team that is not struggling and will no doubt be out for revenge for
How about a look at it from the fans' perspective at The Rog:
It will never get old. It will live in Canucks' infamy. Even IF the Canucks lose this game on Sunday I'll still get goosebumps over THAT game 7 and probably watch it to cheer myself up. Unfortunately, Alexandre Burrows might not play in this one as he is suffering from back spasms. His status is unknown.
Hopefully the Canucks smarten up, or this could get ugly. Dave Bolland is already saying he's looking forward to the challenge of shutting down the Sedins again. Dan Carcillo shit-talked the Canucks before the season started just to be a heel and draw attention to himself. I hope Ballard or Hammer hip check his punk ass. And speaking of aggression...the Canucks need more of it, in every way except aggressive pinching defencemen. Jeeziz, AV, put an effing leash on Bieksa and Edler and Hammer too it seems. If they commit these fouls against Chicago...it's over quick. Chicago's transition game is scary. Vancouver has to clean up in their own end (which I believe they will do against Chi-Town) and they have to be way more aggressive in front of the opposing net. Get dirty, you slackers! Play like you WANT to win!

Damn, that's a solid looking roster.
-Andrew Brunette is a Canuck killer. He has 19 goals and 57 points in 66 career games vs Vancouver.
-Johnny Toews is 4-8-12 in 16 career games vs Van. The only time I like Toews is when he wears a Team Canada jersey, gets killed by Mitchell, is on the ice when BURROWS SCORES! THE CANUCKS HAVE SLAYED THE DRAGON!
-Roberto Luongo is 13-9-1, 2.25 GAA and .926 save % against the Hawks
-Daniel Sedin is 12-23-35 in 39 career games vs Chicago.
-Henrik Sedin is 12-20-32 in 38 career games vs the Hawks.
-Canucks are 23-9 in their last 32 Sunday games.
-Canucks are 3-8 in their last 11 vs. a team with a winning record.
-Blackhawks are 1-4 in their last 5 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game.

Just a random music video. Just a little SRV.
Oh! And I can't forget The Stanchion's creation: Jonathan Toews. Captain Serious. The Movie:
