Despite the 2-0 advantage for the Canucks entering Game Three, the games have been very close. The Canucks had a 2-0 shutout victory in Game One, and won by a single goal in Game Two.

Shot totals have been close, too. The Canucks have outshot the ‘Hawks by a single marker in each and every contest. The difference so far has been between the pipes.

Game Review WCQ GM2

April 16 2011 01:27PM

 Last night, the Canucks held down home-ice advantage with a strong showing against their Blackhawk nemesis. The teams head back to Chicago for game three, with the Canucks holding a 2-0 series lead.

In game three on Sunday, the Canucks will have to deal with the return of the Blackhawks MVP – Chelsea Dagger – which, barring some Luongo magic, will make its obnoxious, lyrically nonsensical return. It's too bad Kesler can't be matched-up against something intangible - like a goal song - because he'd shut-it-down like he's shut-down Captain Serious through two games this series. Toews has been shut-down so hard, that I can't help but be reminded of the countless tall young women, who have shut-down a drunken Patrick Kane, because height is the “one thing” they're shallow about.
