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.

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?

Game Day Review: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 3 - Canucks @ Blackhawks

The Vancouver Canucks have spent all year doing things first and best. And they did it again. They are now the first team in this post-season to get to three wins. It is the first time in three post-seasons that the Canucks have won three games against the Chicago Blackhawks. And while they were not the best team on the ice last night, they sure as hell had the best goalie on the night.
