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 Day Recon: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 3 - Canucks @ Blackhawks
The Vancouver Canucks did something Friday night that they hadn't done in their two previous series against the Chicago Blackhawks. They won Game 2.
Now they move to Chicago and try to do something else they haven't done in the last years. They'll try to win a third game against the Blackhawks in the playoffs.

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.
