The NFHL Game of the Night


Canucks Edge Into Playoff Position


The Vancouver Canucks had high hopes for the season, but as we approach the 1/4 pole of the season, they are hovering at .500, but at least tonight can claim to be in the top 8 in the conference. Brent Sutter had a goal and 2 assists, while the trio of Todd Bergen, Kevin Dineen and Bernie Nicholls each had a goal and assist for Vancouver as they edged the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4. Craig Redmond scored the other Vancouver goal. Kjell Dahlin, Dave Reid, Moe Mantha and Dave Morrison scored for Chicago. The Hawks are the first team to hit 20 games played this season, hitting the milestone with just 5 wins.
