"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top, then that's ones on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel."

(Blackhawks team captain Jonathan Toews (just turned 22!)

The Blackhawks pulled ahead 2-1 in the series against the increasingly feisty Vancouver Canucks last night after a hat trick by the cheeky Dustin Byfuglien and some excellent goaltending by Antti Niemi. Strange to see the smiley actor Owen Wilson at the game (maybe Vince Vaughn gave him his tickets).

Nice passing/teamwork before Kris Versteeg's game-winner in the previous game (which turned the series around in my opinion).

Go Blackhawks! For some great hockey-blogging check out Michael Bérubé.
