Blackhawks winger Troy Brouwer didn't need to say that he was "unhappy." His response to the elbow Canucks defenseman Alexander Elder delivered to his chin said enough.


VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Hawks got some good news Wednesday when winger Troy Brouwer was declared ready and in Game 1 of their first-round series with the rival Canucks.


He's not Patrick Sharp. Or Dave Bolland. But winger Troy Brouwer is an important part of what the Blackhawks want to do.
