Blackhawks downplay Canucks feud @NHLdotcom

CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Ladd says the personalities on his team and the Vancouver Canucks do seem to clash a bit.

Bu Ladd says team goals will trump whatever clashes might come up when the two start their second-round playoff series Saturday night.

Vancouver's Ryan Kesler called Ladd a "coward" earlier this year after they got into a fight during a game in Vancouver. Kesler said Ladd crosschecked him during the playoffs a year ago when he wasn't looking and broke his nose.

Chicago beat Vancouver in six games to win the series. This year, Ladd says the Blackhawks must stay out of the penalty box against the high-scoring Canucks.
