Canucks, ’Hawks take it online

The official Twitter pages for the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks are putting their avatars on the line.

The official Twitter pages for the Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks — @NHLBlackhawks and @VanCanucks, respectively — are putting their avatars on the line.

The team that loses the series has to replace its Twitter photo with one of the winning team’s choosing for a week. Vancouver is up 1-0 in the best-of-seven series.

Chicago has narrowed its choice to a photo of Patrick Kane celebrating a hat trick or of Luongo wearing Blackhawks feathers.

Here’s what some Blackhawks fans are saying about the Canucks online:

@dansoles: At Wrigley today. Guy walking down the aisles with a Canuck sweater. Boos are loud and the upper deck is now chanting, “Let’s go blackhawks!” — from Twitter

Chris Gaal: The Chicago Blackhawks got smoked yesterday by a bunch of tree hugging Canadians. Tonight when a Canadian comes into the store to make a purchase, I am adding a 20% tax for being a CANADIAN. — from the Blackhawks’ Facebook fan page

Here’s what some Canucks fans are saying about the Blackhawks online:

@vclark_wiki: saw the Canucks at the video store this weekend, they were renting Blackhawk Down ...Go Canucks Go!!!! — from Twitter

@JBIEBERCITY: The CANUCKS OWNED Chicago. Yup, it’s our year :)

Bad luck
The Fratellis — the Scottish band that wrote the Blackhawks’ goal song — reportedly broke up on the weekend.
