Canucks visit the Blackhawks, and hope to keep them from tying a league record.

Rival territory: Second City Hockey (tread carefully)

Although this rivalry has become a little quieter as of late, it's still a strong one for us. Our game at the beginning of February was definitely a calmer one compared to years past, with a shootout declaring the winner. Since then, the Canucks have been playing quite strong, although faltering in the last couple games. They now come to visit Chicago, and hope to start the road trip on a very strong note.

It won't be easy, however. The Blackhawks have been ridiculously good so far this season, going 12-0-3. They do not have a regulation loss yet, and can tie a league record tonight for going so long without one. Such perfect timing for this game! We ruined Detroit's home streak last year, why not keep the Hawks from making history? Chicago will be without Brent Seabrook, who got Salo'd against LA the other night. The Canucks will have Cory Schneider in net, and will reportedly have the return of David Booth.

Let's do this. Coconuts go!
