Pressure building on Chicago
Zone time is a killer. The Red Wings keep it in better than most and the Blackhawks just found out the hard way.
 
Brian Rafalski kept the puck in at the right point, fed it into the slot to Todd Bertuzzi, who slotted it over to Danny Cleary for a one-timer that beat Crawford. The Red Wings are back up 4-2 with 11:16 to play in regulation now.
 
The building had some serious jump after Seabrook scored to make it 3-2. The Blackhawks had some jump, too, as they kept the pressure on. However, the Red Wings had a great counterattack and with that in-zone time they were able to deal the Hawks playoff chances a serious blow.
 
The Blackhawks are barely 11 minutes away from needing Minnesota to do something good against Dallas tonight.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
