The Canucks got their chance to prove to the rest of the teams that they're among the leagues elite.

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were in town and they were set for a showdown against the Vancouver Canucks.

Right off the puck drop, Ryan Kesler and Mason Raymond had a chip on their shoulder as they were flying all over the ice.

After a successful penalty kill, the Canucks picked up the pace which got them rewarded.

Ryan Kesler's pass to the front of the net found Mikael Samuelsson stick as he made no mistake to make it 1-0 for the Canucks.

Shortly after, Alex Burrows along with the Sedin Twins got involved as Henrik tapped in the loose puck to make it 2-0.

The Canucks did not stop there as they kept on pushing to extend their lead.

Christian Ehrhoff's shot on net resulted in a rebound which the puck landed on Steve Bernier's stick.

Bernier took his time and found the hole over Niemi's shoulder to give the Canucks a 3-0 lead.

Ryan Kesler had not forgotten the cheap shot that Andrew Ladd got in on him during last years playoffs. Tonight was payback time as the two went at it.

Early in the third period, Jonathan Toews scored to give the Hawks some hope.

On that very next shift, the Sedins put that hope to rest as Henrik scored the 4-1 goal.

Roberto Luongo was extremely sharp as he stopped 44 shots. His biggest save of the night came against Cam Barker where Luongo made a outstanding glove save.

In the late stages of the game, brother Henrik returned the favor as he assisted on Daniels 5-1 goal.

The Canucks defeated the well rested Blackhawks as they're closing in on the 14 game road trip.

Next up on the schedule is the franchise cousins, the Buffalo Sabres.

Team Canada's Roberto Luongo will get to face off against team USA's Ryan Miller.

It'll be a showdown you won't want to miss, Canucks face the Sabres on Monday at 7:00PM on SportsNet-HD.

Cool breakdown...perfect for the fan that missed the game.

What did you think of their play?

They did not give the Blackhawks too many opportunities to score. Chicago had 44 shots on net, but most of them were quite weak.

The Canucks capitalized on their chances and never looked back. This was one of those rare 60 minute games from the Canucks. :D
