Highlights: Canucks tip Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout

By Chris Kuc

Antti Raanta got his first real taste of the Blackhawks’ rivalry against the Canucks and came away impressed with everything but “flipping the coin” at the end.

“I liked it, I liked it,” Raanta said of the showdown between Western Conference foes. “I liked the crowd when they were booing all the time. The national anthems were pretty nice. It got the good vibrations and good energy to the game. I like rivalry games.”

What the Hawks’ rookie goaltender didn’t like as much was the result as the Canucks rallied for a 3-2 shootout victory Friday night at the United Center.
