The Chicago Blackhawks have once again blown out the Vancouver Canucks, this time in a 5-1 romp against Cory Scheinder. The Luongo haters in Vancouver are not going to like this result, as Cory "the next one" did not play well at all. Scheinder has put up better numbers than Luongo so far this season, but this kind of meltdown is not going to help the argument that Luongo should be either benched or shipped out of town. For now Loo is injured, which may provide Cory more opportunities to start depending on its severity. Vancouver fans could get to see a preview of life without Loo, and this was not a good start.
Also, don't look now, but Hawks D-man Steve Montador is suddenly on fire with 4 goals in his last 4 games! I've been one of the few holding on to Stevie in fantasy hockey, and it is now paying off dividends in my 20 team league. If you can't trust Steve Montador, who can you trust? After a slow start, this hot streak has renewed my faith in the hockey Gods.
