3. Everyone needs to be a factor on offense

It was great seeing Jonathan Toews, Dominik Kubalik, and Brandon Saad lighting up the lamp during game one, but I want to see more balanced scoring in game two. I am not trying to say that I do not want to see Kubalik put up five points, I just want to see Alex DeBrincat also score a goal.

Not every game is going to be super high scoring. We are going to need everyone ready to factor in on the offense, and it starts with the next game. I want to see Debrincat put in a nice one-timer like he did all the time a few years ago, and I want to see Patrick Kane get a goal as well!

Also, I want to see our blue line factor in on more goals. Putting pucks on net and just seeing what happens can lead to a great goal if the Blackhawks are desperate late in the game. We saw Duncan Keith get a great assist after just shooting the puck towards the net.

I know the Blackhawks have some great threats on their offense, and it is going to take every one of them to get past the high and flying Oilers. This next game is going to be a high scoring affair.

I’m just going to come out and say it right now, I believe it is going to take five goals to win this game. These two teams are juggernauts on offense, and they falter a lot in their defensive zone too!
