Hawks Rewind: Game 4 of 2010 Western Conference Semifinals


Sunday night at 7 p.m. during another "Hawks Rewind," Blackhawks fans will be privy to another must re-watch.

Sunday's Hawks classic is 2010's Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Hawks took a 2-1 series lead after Dustin Byfuglien exploded on goalie Roberto Luongo and Vancouver with a hat trick and debilitating physicality in Game 3.

Game 4 of the series can be looked back at as the height of the Blackhawks-Canucks rivalry. 

Vancouver was looking to even the series in not just wins, but in physical play and scoring on home ice. Unfortunately for them, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and his team would find another gear.

Toews finished Game 4 with three power-play goals for the hat trick plus two assists to help the Hawks to a 7-4 victory and 3-1 series lead.

Chicago kept up the rough stuff, too. Byfuglien went hard to the net again and remained in Luongo's kitchen for long stretches, creating an effective screen to help the Hawks go 4-for-8 on the power play. He also drew consecutive cross-checking penalties from defenseman Shane O'Brien.

Patrick Sharp scored a power-play goal in the second period, and Thomas Kopecky and Dave Bolland added goals in the third. 

Antti Niemi made 26 saves, while Luongo stopped 27.
