Down 0-2 and still scoreless, Blackhawks remain confident

Down 0-2 and still scoreless, Blackhawks remain confident

The Blackhawks are currently down 2-0 in the seven game series with the Predators now gaining home ice advantage. The Hawks also had multiple point-blank chances that Rinne gobbled up. The plaza party will start at 5:30 p.m. and will feature a Gold Walk, family activities, street hockey rinks, music and food and beverages.

We've seen teams overcome this kind of deficit before, in fact, we've seen teams overcome 3-0 deficits before so this isn't the concern. Nashville isn't screwing around.

Game 3 is Monday night in Nashville. My opinion is coach Q must bench goaltender Corey Crawford. The Predators struggled during the regular season to finish off opponents, commonly known in sports as "killer instinct".

This one isn't for all the marbles, but it's for so many marbles that the fun is probably over if it's not a victor.

However, the two players (other than Rinne, of course) who have really been giving the Blackhawks fits have been Filip Forsberg and Craig Smith. Chief among those was the meeting that was set between the Chicago Blackhawks and Nashville Predators. "They have proven time in and time out that they're a championship team for a reason". "So we all know it doesn't matter if you have a lead or you're down, you've got to take it game by game". The errors they have been making are largely correctable strategic errors, and this team has plenty of depth on both sides of the puck if they want to make lineup changes. Yes, it's time for the Blackhawks to dig deep into their vast reservoir of badassness and find that next gear.

The company is making "a pretty big statement" to that effect by dropping O'Reilly, said Hall, the American University professor. In the statement at the time O'Reilly said that he had settled only to spare his children from the controversy.

Again, the Hawks had trouble penetrating the Predators defense and getting quality looks close to the net, and when the Hawks did shoot, the Predators were in position to block.

But most of that lands on the Hawks, specifically the core.

If you're looking to watch your Predators vs Blackhawks Stream Free then we might have something in your interest. Viktor Arvidsson continued his sterling play, potting the first goal in the series to send Nashville into the intermission with the lead. The problem was they hit the puck low or didn't connect with it perfectly. Jonathan Toews hasn't scored a goal since Game 4 of the 2015 Stanley Cup final and has managed just five shots in the series. Patrick Kane has two in his last 16. Game 2 will be played here Saturday night. The star power Chicago boasts isn't going away and the Blackhawks have dug themselves out of holes equally as deep before.

Don't count the Blackhawks out just yet; if they can score first and pull the Predators out of that stifling D, they may just stand a chance. They're playing with house money at this point, which is a bit unsafe for the top seed Blackhawks. There's also a steadfast belief that, eventually, they'll do the thing. Alas, the veteran netminder improbably and quite literally has two road shutouts in two nights against the Western Conference's top team. Yes, hockey is already an inherently risky sport and yes, shots that don't get through to the net don't go in, but too much emphasis on shot-blocking just seems like a great way to get someone hurt.
