Sports News: Canucks, Blackhawks, Rob Gronkowski

Canucks Beat Blackhawks And Clinched Divisional Title

The Canucks were able to clinch their 5th Northwest Division title in a row thanks to their 3-1 victory over the Blackhawks, the current NHL leaders. It was a great night for the Sedin brothers as Daniel scored the first goal of his team and also contributed one assist while twin Henrik finished the match with two assists of his own.

This was the eighth straight victory for Vancouver at Rogers Arena and such a good result guarantees the Canucks home advantage during the initial round of the NHL postseason. Daniel Sedin was quite pleased with the result and mentioned that “If we play like we did today, I think we’re good. It hasn’t looked like that all the games, but this was one of the more complete games.”

Chicago’s coach Joel Quenneville was impressed with the work of the rival team and said that he believes Vancouver defeated the B-Hawks because the Canucks are already playing at a playoff level and on his opinion, his team just didn’t had the intensity to respond to the challenge in front of them.

Vancouver fans are not only pleased because their team got the divisional title, but also because they clinched it by beating the current best team in the league.

San Diego Acquires Chris Gronkowski In A Trade

The Chargers have just added Chris Gronkowski to their roster after the player was traded from Denver for Cassius Vaughn. He is the younger sibling of NFL stars Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots and Dan Gronkowski of the Browns.

As of now, Chris has played in a total of 35 pro games with the Broncos, Colts and Cowboys. The player has spent each one of his 3 NFL seasons with different teams and now he hopes that his time in San Diego is going to be more productive in order to secure the 26 year-old fullback a long-term contract with his new team, although that will depend how well he’ll do concerning a pectoral injury he suffered during his time in Indianapolis.

Chris is the only one of the Gronkowski brothers to play FB as Dan and Rob are tight ends in their respective teams. The youngest of the Gronkowski’s started his college career as a redshirted player for Maryland in the fullback position but he’s quite versatile and also played as a linebacker when he was transferred to Arizona during his sophomore season.
