Tonight, NBCS Chicago continues its replay of former Chicago Blackhawks’ games from the 2010 Stanley Cup run. At 7 PM CST, they will show Game 5 of the Quarterfinals against the Predators.
Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks “HawksRewind” series continues when NBC Sports Chicago plays Game 6 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals. After the Blackhawks killed off the 5-minute penalty and Marian Hossa scored the game-winning goal in overtime, what can we expect for Game 6?
On Saturday, Hossa scored his first playoff goal as a Blackhawk. What better way than to score the game-winning goal in one of the most important games in the last 49 seasons? From this point forward, every game that is played will be the most important game.
Finally, Chicago holds a lead in this series and can close things out with a win tonight in Nashville. It’ll be a tough game, it’s been that way all series. The Blackhawks do have Antti Niemi in their back pockets, who also has two shutouts so far this series.
If Niemi can keep up the way he’s played this series, there’s no reason why the Blackhawks cannot win their third straight and finish off the series on the road.
They need Patrick Kane needs to build on his game-tying goal with 14 seconds left in Game 5. If he can start putting games together where he makes a big impact on the scoreboard, Chicago will be in good shape.
There is a lot of excitement going around Chicago. This team is turning out to be as good as people were hoping they’d be after last year’s Western Conference visit. It’s time to steal a win on the road and get ready for the Western Conference Semifinals.
