Hawks Rewind: Game 4 of 2010 Western Conference Semifinals

Scott King

Sunday night at 7 p.m. during another "Hawks Rewind," Blackhawks fans will be privy to another must re-watch.

Sunday's Hawks classic is 2010's Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Vancouver Canucks.

The Hawks took a 2-1 series lead after Dustin Byfuglien exploded on goalie Roberto Luongo and Vancouver with a hat trick and debilitating physicality in Game 3.

Game 4 of the series can be looked back at as the height of the Blackhawks-Canucks rivalry. 

Vancouver was looking to even the series in not just wins, but in physical play and scoring on home ice. Unfortunately for them, Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews and his team would find another gear.

Toews finished Game 4 with three power-play goals for the hat trick plus two assists to help the Hawks to a 7-4 victory and 3-1 series lead.

Chicago kept up the rough stuff, too. Byfuglien went hard to the net again and remained in Luongo's kitchen for long stretches, creating an effective screen to help the Hawks go 4-for-8 on the power play. He also drew consecutive cross-checking penalties from defenseman Shane O'Brien.

Patrick Sharp scored a power-play goal in the second period, and Thomas Kopecky and Dave Bolland added goals in the third. 

Antti Niemi made 26 saves, while Luongo stopped 27.

    Former head of pandemic response team speaks out: 'I'm frankly scared'

    The official who oversaw epidemic preparedness for the National Security Council under President Obama said the absence of public guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention during the COVID-19 pandemic leaves her “frankly scared” — and that eliminating her position weakened the American response to the coronavirus when it emerged 18 months later. Beth Cameron, who served as senior director for global health security and biodefense on the NSC until early 2017, was interviewed on the Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast. “I'm frankly scared that our CDC is not out in front talking about this,” Cameron said.

Still, she's determined to bring home holiday cheer amid the coronavirus gloom. Her family can't go to the mosque, but the 29-year-old New Jersey resident bought new outfits for herself and her daughters.

    Is international travel allowed yet? See when Spain, Mexico, Iceland plan to reopen borders

    Americans with a bad case of wanderlust may have to wait until later this summer to vacation abroad – and while some countries, including Spain, have announced target dates to reopen, the pickings will be slim for a while. Parts of Mexico and the Caribbean have targeted dates in early to mid-June for reopening from coronavirus restrictions, but Europe will lag, opening first to other citizens of European Union and Schengen Area countries before welcoming international visitors at a later date. At least one EU member nation has announced a target window, however: Spain's prime minister announced Saturday that his country will reopen to foreign tourists sometime in July, though he did not specify a date.

    Defiant protesters chanting 'liberate Hong Kong' flood the streets to oppose China's grab for control

    REUTERS/Tyrone Siu Hong Kong police fired tear gas and pepper spray to disperse thousands of protesting on Sunday, against Beijing's plan to impose national security laws. China has launched new efforts to increase its control over Hong Kong after mass protests in 2019 hampered its efforts to roll back the city's autonomy. Critics fear the provisions of the law will lead to the end of Hong Kong's independence.

    Moscow espionage trial of ex-US marine Whelan to wrap up

    The trial in Moscow of ex-US marine Paul Whelan on espionage charges is set to conclude Monday, ending a court proceeding that has strained ties with Washington and fuelled speculation of a prisoner exchange. Whelan, 50, who also holds Irish, Canadian and British citizenship, was detained in Moscow in December 2018 for allegedly receiving state secrets. "In a just system, the court would acquit Paul based on the lack of evidence," Whelan's brother David said in a statement ahead of the hearing.

    Georgia reopened first. What the data show is a matter of fierce debate

    Nearly a month after Georgia became the first state to allow businesses to reopen after the coronavirus shutdown, Gov. Brian Kemp took to a conservative radio show to tout some good news. Hospitalizations were down more than 30% in less than three weeks, and Georgia had ramped up its testing, with a per capita rate that placed it 20th out of 54 U.S. states and territories, up from 46th a month ago, he explained. The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported that unlike many other states, Georgia calculates its total number of tests by combining viral diagnostic checks, which indicate current infection, and antibody tests, which indicate past infection.

    A pandemic-related rule change will allow art museums to sell pieces without penalty for 2 years

    One of the most stringent aspects of the code of conduct followed by art museums in the United States is that they're not supposed to sell pieces from their collections to solve financial problems. Art, in other words, can pay for more art, but pretty much nothing else. With museums across the country completely shut down or struggling due to a lack of visitors because of the virus, Brent Benjamin, the president of the Association of Art Museum Directors, said the goal is to allow member organizations a "little more financial flexibility."

    Letters to the Editor: Why is the Trump administration working so hard to deport immigrant children?

    To the editor: The appalling actions taken by the Trump administration against immigrant children is incomprehensible and is the clearest reflection of its moral decay. Trump and his allies have claimed again and again that they welcome immigrants who enter the country legally, yet while lawyers and sponsors struggle to follow the rules, our government moves these children from place to place without warning, will not disclose their whereabouts, and fast-tracks deportations to places so dangerous that they were willing to walk thousands of miles to escape them. To the editor: Compassion is yet another presidential quality that is missing in our current president.

    Expletive-filled video of Bolsonaro swearing at cabinet meeting released by Brazil's Supreme Court

    The populist president, who has faced sustained criticism over his approach to the coronavirus emergency as Brazil's death toll surges to over 20,000, is at the centre of a criminal investigation into claims he sought to replace top federal police officials. Sergio Moro, the ex Justice Minister, alleges Mr Bolsonaro sacked the federal police chief as he wanted someone in the position who would feed him police intelligence. Mr Moro, who headed up a major corruption clampdown, handed in his notice last month after Mr Bolsonaro sacked the federal police director-general without conferring with him.

    TV love story casts light on life in secretive North Korea

    But as secretive and repressive as North Korea is, for some South Koreans, at least, the series drives home one salient point: It just may be that there is more that unites Koreans than divides them. "I watched the drama because it is not a heavy drama about the two Koreas, but a drama mainly focused on love," said Ashely Jun, a translator who lives in Seoul and is a big fan of the show. "It is meaningful, in that it showed some ordinary concerns like love, friendship and family affection in North Korea," Jun said.

    In a 16-second video clip, dozens are seen in swim wear, eating and, overall, looking like they're having a good time at a pool party in Lake of the Ozarks on Memorial Day weekend. No one appears to be social distancing or wearing face masks, and, in this time of coronavirus, that's grabbed national attention. The video was posted to Twitter by Scott Pasmore, an Arizona anchor for KTVK-3TV, with the caption: "No covid concerns at the lake of the ozarks."

    Police say Dominic Cummings controversy will make lockdown impossible to enforce

Senior policing figures and frontline officers said they feared people would no longer be willing to adhere to the Government's guidance, making their job virtually impossible. Many senior officers had already admitted they were struggling to explain the rules to an increasingly confused public.

    Taliban leverages pandemic to burnish image as violence in Afghanistan surges

    A perfect storm has gathered over one of the world's most benighted nations, Afghanistan, where ordinary citizens are facing a fresh form of misery. Taliban militants have announced they will keep fighting since they say there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in areas under the group's control, a senior militant in the province of Ghazni has told NBC News. An exception to the ongoing tensions will be a three-day Eid ceasefire starting Sunday, the Taliban announced in a tweet Saturday.

    South African president says lockdown to ease from June 1

    President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Sunday a further easing of South Africa's coronavirus lockdown from June 1, allowing the vast majority of the economy to return to full capacity. Africa's most industrialised economy has been largely shut down since late March, when the government enforced severe restrictions to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus which has so far infected 22,583 people and killed 429. Ramaphosa, who has been under pressure from rival political parties and a variety of industries to ease the restrictions, said following broad consultations the cabinet had decided to move the country to "level three" of its five-level lockdown system.

    How the Restaurant Industry Viciously Exploits Its Workers, From Wage Theft to Sexual Abuse

    This NRA “represent[s] and advocate[s] on behalf of more than 500,000 restaurant businesses,” including some of the biggest chains in the country. For decades, this has meant keeping tipped workers earning a minimum of $2.13 an hour in 43 states (in California, where I live, tipped workers must earn at least the state-wide minimum wage of $12.00 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees and $13.00 per hour for employers with more than 25 employees). The so-called logic behind this $2.13 tipped worker minimum wage is that tips will meet or exceed the federal minimum wage of $7.25 and, legally speaking, when they don't, employers must make up the difference.
