For as quickly and decisively as the Vancouver Canucks cruised out to a 3-0 series lead, the Chicago Blackhawks took it away in a more remarkable manner. Many scoffed at Jonathan Toews after Game 3 when the Hawks captain stated his team was only behind because they had not exploited the Canucks' weaknesses, but it turned out he was on to something. Chicago stormed back with massive 7-2 and 5-0 victories, forcing Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault to start Cory Schneider for Game 6. When the Canucks lost that one 4-3 in overtime, they returned home trying to avoid becoming the fourth team in NHL victory to blow a 3-0 series lead.
