Hawks and Kings are right back at it tonight after Chicago grabbed a 1-0 series lead on Saturday afternoon. The good news is the Blackhawks were 10-1-1 in the second half of back to back games during the regular season. The Kings should come out as a desperate team tonight. Even though they lost the first 2 games against the St Louis Blues before rattling off 4 straight wings, they do not want to fall behind 2-0 to this Blackahwks team. In order for the Kings to win this series they have to win at least one game at the United Center, lets not make tonight that game. I highly doubt the Hawks will be given as much space on the ice as they were allowed in Game 1. More low shots and more traffic in front of Jonathan Quick will go along way in preventing a tied series.
