Sharks' Keys to the Game
•Help Quick – Jonathan Quick is an elite goaltender, but has had a slow start to the season. Quick needs to get back to form, but will need a reliable defense in front of him to do their part.
•Contain Kane – The talented winger sits 2nd in the NHL in scoring and has been dominant recently with 9 points in his last 5 games. The Kings must do a good job of containing the Hawks' stars to stay in this one.
Blackhawks' Keys to the Game
•Stay Hot – Start strong and keep the pace for a 60 minute game. The Blackhawks are on a roll in nearly every category. They need their stars to remain hot, and keep the pressure on throughout the game.
