SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -If there's any team that should know how tenuous a 1-0 series lead can be in the NHL playoffs it's the Chicago Blackhawks.

The team that had to fight back after losing the opener to win the first two rounds finds itself in an unusual spot now, leading the Western Conference final 1-0 over the San Jose Sharks.

The Blackhawks, in fact, had lost four straight series openers dating to last season before seizing the home-ice advantage by winning 2-1 in Game 1 at the Shark Tank on Sunday. They came back to win three of those series, only losing last year's conference final against Detroit.
