"I know my job on that line. I know what I'm supposed to do. I'm supposed to get pucks for them and give them the puck. They're world-class players. All I have to do is skate hard to the net. If we keep sticks on the ice, then good things are going to happen." -- Tomas Kopecky on skating on a line with Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews
Chicago Blackhawks forward Tomas Kopecky is finding that out the easy way this season by doing some heavy lifting for the team's top line, which has 9 goals and 23 points combined coming into Wednesday night's game at United Center against Vancouver.
It's a game that could feature a lot of offense from both teams. The Canucks' Sedin twins -- Daniel and Henrik -- are both in the top five in scoring, while Hossa leads the League with 7 goals and 11 points for Chicago.
The Hawks also have Patrick Sharp tied for second in goals (6) and sixth in points (8), and he's scored three-straight game-winning goals. Scan down the list a little bit, and Kopecky is No. 11 in scoring (1 goal, 7 assists).
