Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans!

The Chicago Blackhawks are in their usual position with them looking at a 2-1 series deficit that has become their normal during the Joel Quenneville era. Before we get all giddy thinking that we have the St. Louis Blues right where we want them, let’s take a quick look at the past 2-1 deficit’s in the Coach Q era.

2010- Down 2-1 against Nashville.  Come back to win 4-2

2011- Down 3-0, Tie the series but lose in overtime against Vancouver

2012- Down 2-1, Lose the series 4-2 to Mike Smith and the Phoenix Coyotes

2013- Down 2-1 and 3-1 to Detroit, Come back to win the series 4-3

2013- Down 2-1 in Stanley Cup Final, Come back to win 4-2 and oh by the way those great 17 seconds

2014- Down 2-1 and 3-1 to LA Kings, Lose Game #7 in overtime

2015- Down 2-1 To Anaheim come back to win the series in 7 games

2015- Down 2-1 to Tampa in the Stanley Cup Final, Win the Cup in 6 games.

So you can see that just because the Chicago Blackhawks have comeback from 2-1 a lot in their history, it’s not a cinch that it will happen again this season. If it’s going to happen the Hawks are going to have to change some of their offensive plans up and start getting bodies in front of Brian Elliott.  The other thing that they need to figure out his how to stop Vladimir Tarasenko who has been very disruptive all series long. Tonight is the game where the Hawks usually start taking over the series, the question is will this team be like the Hawks of the past.
