Blackhawks and Canucks Heading Back to Chicago, UNRULY Fans

With a resounding 5-0 win in game five, the Chicago Blackhawks took a game from the Vancouver Canucks in their building and got right back in goaltender Roberto Luongo‘s head. They’ve out-scored the Canucks 12-2 in the last two games, and 17-11 in the series (yet they still face elimination being down 3-2).

Maybe the Chicago fans and their taunts are getting to them? Much was made of Hollywood A-Lister Vince Vaughn taunting Roberto Luongo (see picture above, click for larger view), but apparently there are some meatball Hawks fans out there who are crossing the line of good taste and harassing the Canucks front office.

(Why am I not surprised?)

Blackhawks Look 2010 Style, for 1 Night at Least

Like the group of very late 20 century American poets, 98 Degrees once said, “Give me just one night, una noche,
I’ll give you the time of your life.”
And for the Chicago Blackhawks, that one night stand was as exciting and as invigorating as possible.

Facing their first elimination game since ’09, they looked like the NHL Stanley Cup Champions of last year, dominating the Vancouver Canucks, and going on a scoring spree that would make Wilt Chamberlain proud. They rode a four goal second period to a 7-2 win, and stayed alive; for one more night at least.

As the scoring barrage ensued, I’m sure many of the Hawks fans (maybe even Vince Vaughn who was in attendance with his daughter again) said to themselves, “hey, save some of that for Thursday in Vancouver.”
