53.7 : The Blackhawks' faceoff win percentage, the second highest in the playoffs.

28 : The number of shots on goal by Marian Hossa, the most in the playoffs.

24 : The number of blocked shots by Niklas Hjalmarsson, the most in the playoffs. I wrote he had 11 in Friday's recap, but I was wrong.  He has had 11 of his own shots blocked.

+21 : Bryan Bickell's hit differential, since everyone at NBC thinks that is what wins hockey games.

8-11 : Ken Hitchcock's career coaching record when facing elimination.

10-2 : The Blackhawks' record, under Joel Quenneville, in games where they can close out a playoff series.
