1. Start the game on time

The Chicago Blackhawks need to make sure they play a full 60 minutes of hockey tonight. They have had games this series that have included great spurts of hockey, but we have not seen the Blackhawks dominate their play. Now today offers that opportunity.

The Edmonton Oilers are on their heels as they could be eliminated after this game, so you know they are going to come out ready to play. Chicago needs to play like a team that has a lead in the series, and they need to shut Edmonton down early.

I have all the confidence in the world that the Blackhawks can play at a high-level today, but if they play as they did in game three then things are not going to go there way. We are going to need everyone playing together tonight.
