The Chicago Blackhawks are down 2-1 in the Western Conference semifinal series against the Detroit Red Wings, and the pressure is on. While a 3-1 deficit isn't impossible to overcome, the Hawks know the importance of coming away with a win tonight to tie up the series. In the history of the NHL, teams have trailed 3-1 a total of 229 times, with only 20 of those occasions resulting in a comeback to take the series.

With the Wings playing oustanding defensively, the Hawks have found themselves mixing and matching their two top lines in order to produce more opportunities on offense. The Hawks have scored a total of just two goals in the last two games of the series, and must find a way to convert their numerous shots on the posts and crossbar into game-winners. Head coach Joel Quenneville hopes this fluctuation within the lines will serve as a spark for the frustrated offense.
