This has been going on since day one this year and it is so frustrating to watch it game in and game out.
This is also the reason our PP has struggled lately. They are always looking for the perfect pass/pretty goal instead of getting a dirty rebound goal or something. I rather have Campbell on the PP than Keith. Keith can never get a shot through traffic plus it kinda reminds me of Trent Yawney(and thats NOT good).

I know this sounds dumb but if the Hawks forwards continue to hang around the perimeter than take some elevated bombs from the point off Vannys Dmen. This should soften their crease up a little so the Hawks can jump on the loose rebounds. If they block our shots then you elevate those shot a little more. I guarantee you that they would get out of the way.

The Hawks first goal of the series needs to be early and preferably before Vancouver has one. If VAN sat back in periods 2 and 3 of game 1 they did so dreadfully well.

Pisani replacing Kopy, this can be interesting.

We need to come out flying in the 1st like the Nucks did last game and put pressure on Luongo early. Feeling confident about this won,

LGH.

As a die hard Canucks fan, I agree with everything mentioned in this post. The first period in Game 1 was the best I have EVER seen the Canucks play. It will be very tough for our club to match that. The Hawks played a good road game, and Crawford deserves more recognition for his performance in Game 1. You guys hit 4 posts which could have ended up in the net, and 2 hilite reel saves by Lou. The game could have easily been 4-2, 5-2 for the Hawks. In regards to avoiding odd man rushes....thats nearly impossible against our speed and our offensively minded defense core.

I know what the Hawks are capable of, regardless if the're "not the same team as last year". The real Canuck fans respect the Hawks and we know this is far from over. Good luck the rest of the way. It's going to be a great series.

From what I can tell that hasn't been confirmed by any reputable sources (At least it wasn't 30 minutes ago)

Yes... but with sound positional hockey and no careless pinches by our dmen, that will inevitably get us down a goal early .... I reiterate: PATIENCE

Well, I've finally realized that posting on the main board is futile... While their are certainly a few knowledgeable, fair Canucks fans on here, they are certainly not in the majority.

Hope our Hawks can eliminate some of their cockiness tonight.

Good feeling about tonight for whatever reason.

Match them in the first 20 this game and I think we pull this one off.

Lets go Hawks!

You joined in 2007 and are just now realizing this?! haha. Well, welcome to the light!

We need to knock one in early and remind Vancouver that we aren't just going to bend over and take it.

On the whole, the other night's game was not a bad game for the Hawks outside of the 1st period. Crawford showed he was a rookie, yet quickly recovered. Has everyone forgotten Niemi last year? There were very few "goaltender" games last year, with 3-4+ goals against. The difference was that Niemi had a more consistent, harder-working, and more physical team in front of him than Crawford does today.

We need more bodies in front of the net (buzz-phrase for this series?) and we need a little incidental contact with Luongo - remind HIM that we're still Chicago.


... and a little Chelsea Dagger when they bring it home Sunday won't hurt either.

If the real Pisani shows up, you guys will be on your way. He needs to play like he did in 2006.

Hopefully the Canucks are just as cocky as their fans coming into this game. I do agree that they are a real good team this year, but they are not impossible to beat.

There's no point of posting on the main boards for this series. The chance of getting infracted heavily outweigh the chance of having a worthwhile discussion.
