Gamethread #58: Canucks vs Blackhawks

Two Jerseys go into the rafters tonight before the Canucks play their old foe.

Well done by the Canucks organization on planning the Sedins jersey retirement on a night the team plays against the Sedin’s nemesis. Many battles were fought by these two teams while the Sedins played and hopefully the Hawks show the respect they have for the Twins. Maybe Dave Bolland can come congratulate them.

The Canucks are coming off a big win against the Preds. The Nucks attacked early and scored three 1st period goals and then were able to close out the Preds in the third. They are going to have to come out the same way tonight. The Hawks have lost four in a row and close to being out of the playoff picture. The Blackhawks situation should be one that Canuck fans take note of. Two $10,000,000 players that make it hard to bring in mid level talent. The Hawks have to rely on their minor leaguers to perform for them to have success.

The Canucks need to keep winning...I’ll keep saying it. They also can’t trade Marky.

Go Canucks Go!
