Canucks seek some revenge vs. Blackhawks
The last time the Vancouver Canucks saw the Chicago Blackhawks, the Hawks were celebrating after eliminating them in the second round of the playoffs last spring on the way to the franchise's first Stanley Cup in 49 years.

The teams get together for the first time since that night in May when they meet at the United Center at 8:30 p.m. in one of four NHL games on Wednesday night's schedule.

The Hawks have won their last three games, including Monday's 3-2 overtime victory against St. Louis.
The night's action starts with two games at 7 p.m. ET. The Atlanta Thrashers return from a successful swing through California to host the struggling Buffalo Sabres, who haven't played since a 4-3 loss at Chicago on Saturday.

The Anaheim Ducks, coming off a 3-2 home win against Phoenix, start a road trip in Columbus. The Blue Jackets lost their home opener to Chicago on Friday but rebounded with a 3-2 victory at Minnesota the next night.

The final game of the night begins at 10:30 p.m. ET when the Carolina Hurricanes continue their Western swing with a stop in Los Angeles. The Kings have been off since a 4-1 home victory against Vancouver on Friday.
Quote of the Day

I look forward to the process, the battle, the pain, the fun, the journey.  It's going to be a long one but it's going to be a lot of fun. If you think there is no pain coming, there is pain coming.
