Tonight, the Blackhawks will play their first game against the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Here are tonight’s three keys to winning Game 1.

The Chicago Blackhawks are back in the full swing of playoffs beginning tonight against Vegas. It’s the first time since the Blackhawks have won a playoff series since 2015; however, with that now under their belt the Blackhawks look poised to being their next challenge.

With that said, the Vegas Golden Knights are a much deeper and legitimate threat than the top-heavy Oilers. Unlike Edmonton, Vegas is a legit favorite to win the Stanley Cup this year so the Blackhawks have their work cut out for them. As fans, we must slightly temper our expectations and hope the Blackhawks continue their postseason success.

Still, fans should be excited that playoffs *officially* started and we are onto the first round. As Blackhawks fans have experienced before in the playoffs, there is always a great reason to expect the unexpected.
