OT Canucks at Hawks Round 2

290

The following is a quote from the link Season series: < Chicago and Vancouver split four regular-season meetings, with each team winning once on its opponent's home ice. Antti Niemi, who took over the starting job for the Blackhawks late in the season, stopped all 30 shots he faced in a 1-0 win at GM Place on Nov. 22. It was his only win in three decisions against the Canucks, while Roberto Luongo split his four starts. Mikael Samuelsson, who had a huge first round of the playoffs, led all scorers in the regular-season series with three goals. Big story: Major rivalries don't often develop between teams from separate divisions, but this is the second consecutive postseason in which Chicago and Vancouver have met with a berth in the Western Conference Finals at stake, and it's safe to say the requisite level of dislike has built. Young stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are set on taking the Blackhawks a step further this year, with their sights set on the Stanley Cup Final. Luongo, who earned a gold medal for Canada in his home arena in February, is looking to cap his season by leading the Canucks to the pinnacle of NHL success.
