One big positive about the possibility of the Phoenix Coyotes returning to Winnipeg is that Edmonton would no longer be perceived by players as the second-least desirable destination in the NHL, which it now is.

Hansen, go smack some Blackhawks ass. They've been very naughty boys.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 5 - Blackhawks @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks will try once again to close out their opening round series with the Chicago Blackhawks tonight as the two teams go head-to-head at Rogers Arena tonight. The Canucks were embarrassed in Game 4 and will want to return to the form that they showed in their two home games to start the series. And to be a whole lot less sucktastic.

There's no point sugar-coating it. The Canucks performance yesterday was brutal, and the game was simply hard to watch.
Is there anything that makes Canucks fans as uniquely furious as watching their team lose to Chicago, in the Mad House, in a blow-out? I found that the anger physiologically lodged itself in the pit of my stomach, a sensation similar to the one you get when you leave your belly some 40 feet behind you on a roller coaster - except it's a dull, resentful feeling - totally devoid of "amusement park ride" exhilaration.

Don't be scared, red-coat lady. If the Canucks can help it, it will ALL be over soon

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 4 - Canucks @ Blackhawks
The Vancouver Canucks look to close out their first round series against the Chicago Blackhawks tonight with an unexpected 4-game sweep. While many predicted the Canucks to win this series, I don't think anyone (except for the overzealous Canucks fans wearing blue/green coloured glasses) predicted a potential sweep of the reigning Stanley Cup champions.
Could the Canucks slay their playoff dragon tonight?
