Game Review WCQ GM2

 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.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 2 - Blackhawks @ Canucks

Roberto Luongo and the Vancouver Canucks played a nearly perfect game on Wednesday to come away with the victory and the early series lead. But they did that both times the Canucks and Blackhawks previously met in the playoffs. So the question for Game 2 is:

Can the Vancouver Canucks take a 2-0 series lead for the first time in three tries against the Chicago Blackhawks?
