CHICAGO (Ticker) - Perhaps Chicago should consider changing its nickname to the Black-and-Bluehawks.

Playing without their entire first line and their starting goaltender, the Blackhawks dropped their third straight game with an uninspiring 5-0 defeat to the Vancouver Canucks.

Roberto Luongo made 32 saves to record his 28th career shutout and first since coming over in an offseason trade with Florida. He turned aside 18 shots alone in the second period, but his job was made easier by the fact that he was facing a severely depleted squad.

Chicago took the ice without its first line of Tuomo Ruutu, who sprained his knee in the preseason; Martin Havlat, who suffered a sprained ankle Friday; and Michal Handzus, who tore his ACL in Saturday's 4-3 defeat to St. Louis.
