Blackhawks try to regroup after losses in Philly @NHLdotcom

CHICAGO (AP) -When they won the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals, the Chicago Blackhawks were soaring. A trip to Philadelphia brought back them back to reality in a hurry.

After two wins by the gritty Flyers on their home ice tied the series, the championship round is now a best-of-3.

Before Sunday night's pivotal game 5, the Blackhawks know they have adjust - to the Flyers' speed, to Philly's rugged defense led by veteran Chris Pronger, to their own inability to get scoring from their top players - or risk losing what they've come this far to achieve.

Coach Joel Quenneville may mix and match some lines and Chicago's defense hopes to give goalie Antti Niemi more support against a balanced Flyers' attack that has shown itself to be the Blackhawks' equal.
