1. You got to Freddy, now crawl into his head. Good job by the Blackhawks in their last game getting shots and traffic in and around Ducks goalie Frederick Andersen.


The Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks unintentionally repeated their Game 2 pattern in Game 4: a multi-overtime game, a flight out within 10 hours of that game’s end and a quick prep for the next one.


Jonathan Toews waited just long enough before lifting the shot past Frederik Andersen.
