Sunday's NHL preview

Sunday's playoff game involving a Canadian team:

Vancouver at Chicago, 8 p.m. ET

Canucks—The Vancouver Canucks (2-0) head to the Windy City just two wins away from putting an ugly playoff past behind them. The Canucks have been eliminated by Chicago two straight years. Another quality night from Daniel Sedin will help Vancouver get to the next round. He scored twice in a 4-3 win Friday.

Blackhawks—The Chicago Blackhawks (0-2) haven't looked like defending Stanley Cup champions early on in the playoffs. The Blackhawks will look for some vindication in front of their rowdy hometown fans. They'll also need a better effort from stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.
