Gamethread #55: Canucks vs Blackhawks

The Canucks try to find a win in Chicago.

Who counted out Chicago by Christmas? I have my hand up as well. So let’s not talk about the fact that the Blackhawks are only 3 points behind the Canucks and they have won 5 in a row. It seems that this road trip of “easy” teams was a mirage. The Canucks enter Chicago undermanned and lacking a scoring touch.

The only bright part before anyone touches a puck is the fact the Canucks have beat Chicago 5 times in a row. I guess Marky goes again as Demko is out for a couple weeks with a knee sprain. Marky has been great so far and he’s bound to see a lot of shots again tonight.

Bo Horvat is one guy that needs to step and convert. I think he knows this.

I know some of you hate early starts....but not me! Let’s hope there is no Chelsea Dagger tonight.
