Canucks VS Blackhawks Gameday Preview (Oct 21)

The Vancouver Canucks (1-2-1) currently sit in fourth place in the Pacific standings. They are in Chicago tonight to play the struggling Blackhawks who have dropped four straight games to open the season.

Vancouver Canucks :

  • The Canucks finished (23-29-4) overall last season.

  • There are no updates regarding Sutter and Motte's return to lineup yet.

  • Travis green stated in his pre-game interview that Quinn Hughes had a lower body injury.

He was close to playing last game and he is close to playing tonight. we'll see if he's in or out" - Travis Green

  • JT Miller is projected to be centering the 3rd line between the skilled rookies Vasily Podkolzin and the seasoned veteran from Dallas Justin Dowling. This could potentially be the deadliest 3rd line in the NHL.

Chicago Blackhawks :

  • Chicago finished (24-25-7) overall during the 2020-2021 season.

  • Mike Hardman is out after suffering Head laceration.

  • Patrick Kane will be honored at home tonight in a ceremony for completion of 1000 games in NHL. He will be presented with the Silver Stick in front of the home fans. Kane actually achieved this prestigious milestone back on March 9th in front of the empty united Center in Chicago.

My prediction : 4-2 Canucks.
