Second City Hockey: That's Not How We Planned It

The Canucks turned things around tonight in Chicago, winning 4-1 to stay alive against the Blackhawks. The Canucks played a solid game but Chicago did what they could to give the game away, says Second City Hockey.

Not that the Hawks made things all that difficult though. The Hawks were all too willing to make sure the roles were completely reversed tonight – taking one stupid penalty after another. Actually, it might not be fair to say all the Hawks were taking penalties. In reality it was only three, Buff taking back to back penalties in the second, Eager being the moron we all know he can be and Marian Hossa taking two bad penalties of his own… one of which came a mere 4 seconds after Toews’ goal, killing any momentum that the Hawks could have been working to build late in the game. Nice one there Marian. The only non-repeat offender tonight was Antti Niemi, taking his first ever penalty in the NHL for a hooking call behind his net.
