Chicago Blackhawks V Vancouver Canucks Game 5 April 21 2011

April 21, 2011 | by Bryan | posted in Uncategorized

We are now through the first 4 games of the first round between the Vancouver Chicago series. Oddsmakers have put the the canucks as the favorite or even money in every single game. Chicago players have been using the media to bring light to the fact that Vancouver is notorious for choking. They then went ahead and proved it in Game 4 with a 7-2 beating.

Given Vancouver’s past playoff performance (especially against Chicago) Vancouver is in a must win situation. Losing tonight will send them back to the madhouse.

“Not only did we need a win, but it was great to win big and prove a point,” Hawks captain Jonathan Toews said after Game 4. “We wanted to go out there and play for each other and everything finally snowballed in our favor. It gives us a lot of confidence going into Game 5. We’re not looking forward to Game 6 or Game 7. The pressure is on them.”

Remember Vancouver was thumped at home 7-2 earlier in the season. The next time Chicago came to town it was a different story.
