Hawks Stomp Canucks to Continue Hot Start

Thumbnail image for blackhawks.gifThe Blackhawks not only got revenge on their rivals the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday with a 5-1 victory, they also began their long circus road trip with a win.

The Hawks avenged a brutal 6-2 loss against the Canucks on Nov. 6. Among the highlights of the game last night was a power play goal by Andrew Brunette, who has scored all four of his goals this season on the power play. Patrick Kane scored on the Hawks' second power play of the evening, putting Chicago up 2-1 midway though the second period.

Patrick Sharp, Steve Montador and Jonathan Toews all put the puck past Canucks backup goalie Cory Schneider in the third period. Toews' goal was his fourth in the past five games.

Corey Crawford made 28 saves to record the win and improve his record to 9-4-2 this season.

Beginning their six-game road trip by improving to 12-4-3, their best start since the 1982-83 season, the Hawks are looking to keep the momentum and return home with an outstanding record on the circus road trip. Chicago has scored 21 goals in their past four wins.
