Helping to take advantage of eight Vancouver penalties, four of Toews' five points in Chicago's 7-4 win came on the power play, including each of his three goals to help give the Blackhawks a 3-1 series lead over the Canucks. The Chicago captain moved into first place atop the NHL playoff scoring lead and helped put the Blackhawks one win away from their second straight trip to the Western Conference Finals. "

Sharp: "It's pretty exciting but the business isn't done yet. We still have to close them out and I think the best place to do it would be at home."

Madden: "There's plenty of motivation. You don't want to let a team like Vancouver back into the series. Not to say they're out, but they win that one, they come back here (trailing) 3-2. We're well aware of the situation. They're a great hockey team, they have great players, so it doesn't take much for them to get things done."

"You got a lot of momentum, you want to go home and try to take advantage of it. We know we gotta be smart and gotta be disciplined. We should be excited to be back home.

Vigneault on Lu: “I think right now he’s the second-best goaltender on the ice." (Well, it looks like he can count to two)
