Ladies and gentlemen, we have a playoff series with the Red Wings that is not as easy as the Blackhawks may have thought.
It will be interesting to see which team will show up for Coach Joel Quenneville: the one from the first game that dominated Detroit, or the one that got dominated in game two.
With the series knotted at a game apiece, there is absolutely no panic with the team that just lost home ice advantage.
The Blackhawks have been a good road team this season, especially at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. So maybe the Hawks players don't think Detroit sucks as much as fans chant at the United Center.
The Blackhawks are 10-0-1 in the last 11 regular season games in Motown. The Joe Louis arena has a quicker ice surface with quirky end and side boards. Quenneville said it makes for a "livelier game". Players like defenseman Duncan Keith said the Detroit arena is "fun" and the Hawks need to have a "do or die attitude" when they go on the road.
Out of the dog house?
That is the feeling you get from listening to Coach Q about Viktor Stalberg.
