Vancouver Canucks

The enemy’s Aerys site: None

Okay, let’s be honest: I can’t not be excited about this game.

Both clubs are coming off losses and with the added rivalry, I feel that this could turn into one of those games where something big happens. I’m expecting the pace to be set early and both teams are definitely going to try their hardest to get under the other’s skin.

Obviously, I really hope that the Blackhawks are able to get under Luongo’s skin and cause him to fall apart. Even if it is just so I can hear the “LUUUUU” chant. But in all actuality, I feel that this game will be the one to watch tonight.
