Tuesday's NHL preview

Tuesday's playoff game involving a Canadian team:

Vancouver at Chicago, 8 p.m. ET

Canucks—Vancouver (3-0) is gunning for a sweep in the best-of-seven opening round series. The Sedin twins have caused trouble for the Blackhawks, with Daniel recording a goal and assist in Game 3 and Henrik adding two assists. The Canucks will have Raffi Torres in the lineup despite early speculation he'd be suspended for a hit on Chicago's Brent Seabrook in the Canucks' 3-2 Game 3 win.

Blackhawks—Defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago (0-3) finds itself on the brink of elimination against the team it dispatched in the second round of the post-season last year. The Blackhawks hope to have centre Dave Bolland back in the lineup. Bolland, who helped shut down the Sedins in last year's playoffs, has been sidelined since March 9 with a concussion.
