Scars on ice: Blackhawks vs. Canucks faceoff

January 30, 2012|RedEye

They've tangled in three straight NHL postseasons. They've shed blood—and tears—on the ice. They've engaged in wars of words off the ice.

They are the Blackhawks and rival Vancouver Canucks.

Tuesday night, they meet yet again—this time in Vancouver. Call it a re-re-re-rematch. It's one of those games that you just must watch in case something controversial happens again. Before they battle on the ice, though, they battle in a RedEye faceoff.
