I can understand Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews’ anger over his questionable tripping penalty in overtime that led to Montreal’s winning goal.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- No one posted line matchups in the Rogers Arena media room for all to see and examine.

Ben Smith, hero.
Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, and Patrick Sharp, zero.
That’s a zero in terms of goals – combined, mind you -- and impact on the Blackhawks in their playoff series with Vancouver.
The Hawks’ big shooters...
