As expected, the Wolves andRampage played a very tight game to start off their first round series. But surprisingly, it wasn't exactly the goaltenders duel most were expecting! Chicago burst out of the gate with three first period goals, but couldn't hold the advantage over a very patient San Antonio team, going down 5-4.

The Canucks played a near-perfect road game on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. That they received stellar goaltending from Cory Schneider certainly helped, as did all-world performances from Daniel and Henrik. However, the Kings were the better team through forty minutes, and the Canucks will be hard-pressed to win another three straight against them. To sound cliché, taking it “one game at a time” is exactly how this situation must be looked at. With that in mind, how can the Canucks improve on their performance for game five on Sunday night?
