Things looked very ominous as the Chicago Blackhawks left the ice on Friday night while letting the Wild back into the series as the Hawks looked like they forgot who they were most of the time. The Hawks now are at 2-2 and if you are looking for good signs there are a couple. Since Joel Quenneville took over as coach every time the Blackhawks have had the series tied at 2-2 (6 times) the Hawks have gone on to win Games #5 and #6. Also anytime the Hawks have a player suspended (this time Brandon Bollig) the Hawks have pulled out a win.
Everyone was talking about how eerie the Blues series was, but it seems like the Hawks have turned into the LA Kings of last year following their path in the second round when the home team won every game of that second round series.
The Blackhawks are home tonight in another pivotal Game #5! The Hawks will be looking for the same result they had during the last series when they won in overtime at St. Louis while this time it is in front of the United Center Fans! Here are the listings for tonight’s game:
Game Time– 8:00pm
