NHL Playoffs: Chicago Blackhawks vs. Vancouver Canucks Live Stream Game 5 (Free Online Video)
Blackhawks vs. Canucks Game 5 Live Stream: The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Vancouver Canucks 7-4 on Friday and grabbed a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven-series. Tonight, the United Center will be packed, as Joel Quenneville’s men have a chance to close out the series and advance to the Western Conference Finals for the second straight year.
Hockey fans have to be wondering what happened to the team that stormed out in Game 1 and thrashed Chicago 5-1. While the Canucks have accounted for three of the 20 all-time NHL comebacks from 3-1 down, the Hawks never lost in the 13 events in which they have won three of the first four games of a series.
“We just need to win a hockey game here,” defenseman Shane O’Brien told reporters. “If we win a hockey game in a tough building on the road, maybe we’ll get a little bit of that swagger back.”
The game starts at 8:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Kevin Bieksa scored twice, Roberto Luongo made 29 saves, and Vancouver defeated Chicago, 4-1, to stay alive in the Western Conference semifinals.
