Gist on Ice: Canucks 5 Blackhawks 7

Hawks Win! Hawks Win! The Blackhawks are going to the Western Division Championships to face either the Detroit Red Wings or the Anaheim Ducks thanks to a win in a back and forth game that didn't slow down in intensity since minute one. What a game. Patrick Kane was unreal, delivering a hat trick. Johnny Toews, the young captain, scored two goals of his own, including the go ahead goal in the 3rd period. Kris Versteeg and Adam Burish contributed the other two Blackhawks goals as the youngsters outlasted the Canucks in a wild game that went right down to the wire.

The teams traded scoring throughout the game, but the Blackhawks scored the goals that counted. Congrats guys on being the first team in the final four. Bring on the Wings or the Ducks! There will be more Gist on Ice to come over the next week and hopefully beyond.
