Keep you head up, Lu. Be Ready.
The Vancouver Canucks look to take early command of their second round against the Chicago Blackhawks as the two clubs square off again at United Center tonight. Two big questions go into tonight: Can the Canucks duplicate their effort from Saturday? Will the Blackhawks do the same?
The Canucks should have only one motto tonight - Be Ready.

Now that 48 hours or so have passed since the conclusion of the first round, a few observations and remarks.
• There has been much pleading for cooler heads to prevail in D.C. in the wake of the Washington Capitals’ collapse against the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference’s 1-8 matchup.
On the other hand, it’s possible an attempt to avoid over-reaction may result in under-reaction. Ted Leonsis was chided for his emotional post-series evisceration of the hockey club but the Caps owner may be right to fret, even if he’s giving the wrong reasons to do so.

Since there’s a current lull in the Canuck schedule, I thought I’d write about something else. Try this on for size:
Backstrom is a better player than Ovechkin.
