NHL Playoffs: Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Canucks vs. Blackhawks Live Stream: The No. 2 Chicago Blackhawks and the No. 3 Vancouver Canucks are ready to face off in Game 1 of their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal at the United Center. The Canucks are second in the NHL in goals per game at 3.27 and the Hawks third at 3.20.
Joel Quenneville’s men needed six games to eliminate the Nashville Predators, the same number of games Vancouver needed to down the Los Angeles Kings.
This is a much-anticipated rematch of last year’s playoffs meeting when Chicago eliminated the Canadian side in six games during the second round. In the regular season, they split four games, with each team winning once on its opponent’s home ice. Both sides won a low scoring, one goal game on the road and picked up a blowout win at home.
Who do you think will win tonight? I think the Hawks are more talented but the Canucks offset that advantage because Roberto Luongo is a better netkeeper than Antti Niemi.
The game starts at 8:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: The Vancouver Canucks sailed to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks for the 1-0 series lead. You can watch Game 2 HERE.
