Fast Facts

> Much Ado About Nothing: Who cares about the 7-1 meltdown back in November? Here’s something far sexier: Vancouver has a chance to open up a nine point lead on Detroit for #1 in the West while simultaneously keeping Chicago on the outside looking in at the top eight. Yes, please.

> Numbers Lie: Chicago sports an ugly PK but it’s a bit misleading. The Hawks haven’t surrendered a PPG in their last seven games which – combined with the league’s best PP – help explain their 6-3-1 record in the last ten games.

> Impress Your Friends With Knowledge!: If he scores tonight, Burrows will match a personal best of five straight games with a goal, dating back to January 2010.
