Blackhawks Pledge to Make Life Tougher for Luongo
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- The Chicago Blackhawks are in a familiar spot, trailing after the first game of a playoff series against the Vancouver Canucks.

To erase that deficit in Game 2 on Friday night, and come back to eliminate the Canucks for a third straight season, the Blackhawks agree they have to get to another place they know well: right in front of Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo.

Luongo made 32 saves in a 2-0 victory in Game 1 on Wednesday night. And while Chicago took some solace in putting three pucks off posts behind him, they say they didn't get enough bodies in front of him.

Luongo expects to see more Chicago jerseys up close as the series goes on.
