The Blackhawks are down 3-1, but think they just need one timely goal to regain their confidence and steal back the momentum. The rolling Red Wings have won three in a row; they're just looking for more of the same.
Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says his team is getting quality scoring chances. He would just like to see more traffic in front of the net when the Blackhawks are attacking.
On the brink of elimination, the Blackhawks held a team meeting Friday and an optional skate while Detroit travelled to Chicago looking to deliver a knockout blow at the United Center.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
