|Blackhawks Must Solve Luongo
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Playing catch-up is getting old for the Chicago Blackhawks. They've lost the first game of their last four playoff series and now they're in a hole against a talented Vancouver team with lots of speed and a stellar goalie.
In Monday's Game 2 at the United Center, the Blackhawks must find a day to solve Robert Luongo, something they failed to do in the opener.
They stormed the Canucks goalie early, but he made 17 of his 36 saves in the first period, shutting off two power plays.
Vancouver used its speed and depth, getting scoring from all four if its lines, something coach Alain Vigneault stressed would be pivotal against the Blackhawks.
