The Blackhawks will not practice today. The Vancouver Canucks, I believe, were being tended to by all the king’s horses and all the king’s men.
Or should we be calling them the Vanquitter Canucks after the way they’ve rolled over easily...

You could say the NHL is...

The San Jose Sharks have a third period problem, and it cost them Game 1 against the Vancouver Canucks.
They've given up 15 final frame goals, most in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, while scoring 11. If coffee is for closers, they've gone thirsty in 2011....

For starters, this 100-point season isn’t like other Blackhawks...

Trevor Daley scored in the eighth round of the shootout to help the Dallas Stars escape Jobing.com Arena with a 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes.
