The Chicago Blackhawks dug themselves a hole after Game #1’s loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday afternoon.  The question is will they get back to level ground after Game #2 or will they begin digging themselves a trench which will be hard to get out from under!

The Chicago Blackhawks are not strangers to being down 1-0 or losing the first game on the road of a series, both of which the Chicago Blackhawks have overcome as recently as last years St. Louis Blues series.  The Chicago Blackhawks were down 2-0 to their hated rivals before storming back to take the series 4-2.

The Anaheim Ducks system was evident and two-fold.  One was to hit the Chicago Blackhawks every chance they could, we have seen this tactic many of times from the St. Louis Blues to the LA Kings so it’s no big surprise that the Ducks would also try this on the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.  This tactic works maybe for a period or two, but the Chicago Blackhawks possession usually wins over running at people in the end.

The second thing the Anaheim Ducks focused on was trying to wear out the Chicago Blackhawks top 6 defenseman.  Now, I must say that this tactic seemed to work especially in the third period when all four Chicago Blackhawks defenseman looked winded, while Kimmo Timonen barley broke a sweat while riding the pine on Joel Quenneville’s bench.

The question is will David Rundblad get his feet under him after being spotlighted on both the opening goals for the Anaheim Ducks and being stuck to the bench next to Kimmo for most of the last two periods at the Honda Center.  Will Joel trust anyone or will he run the Chicago Blackhawks defense into the ground the longer this series goes.

It’s not all on the line tonight, but it sure seems like the Stanley Cup Finals would be more plausible if the Chicago Blackhawks find a way to even the series tonight at the Honda Center, and head back to the United Center tied 1-1 instead of down 2-0 needing to hold serve in Chicago and still find a way to win a game in Anaheim!
