CHICAGO (AP) -Playing catch-up is getting old for the Chicago Blackhawks. They've lost the first game of their last four playoff series and now they're in a hole against a talented Vancouver team with lots of speed and a stellar goalie.

Vancouver used its speed and depth, getting scoring from all four if its lines - something coach Alain Vigneault stressed would be pivotal against the Blackhawks.
