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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
