The defending Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks host the Chicago Blackhawks, who currently lead the conference with 25 points and have the best record in the NHL entering Wednesday night's action.
Last Sunday in Chicago, the Canucks handed the Blackhawks what was their third loss of the season, with the Canucks taking advantage of an uncharacteristically undisciplined Blackhawks team that took 10 penalties on the night. The Canucks scored five power play goals to win 6-2.
Tonight's game in Vancouver is the first of a six-game road trip and are currently riding a three-game winning streak, outscoring their opponents 16-7 during that stretch. Patrick Kane (6-13-19), Marian Hossa (8-10-18), Patrick Sharp (5-12-17) and Jonathan Toews (9-6-15) pace an offense that ranks second in goals this season.
That offense will face a Canucks team that may be without the services of goalie Roberto Luongo, who is day-to-day with an upper body injury. The Sedin twins -- Henrik and Daniel -- each have six goals and over 20 points, picking up points in three of their past five games.
