Game Thread - Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings

USA TODAY Sports

In the shock of the second round, Chicago is already on the ropes in game 5. Can they stave off elimination?

Can we all take a moment to appreciate the genius of Mike Babcock? WIthout Lidstrom for the first time in forever, he's taken an aging team with one defenseman of any note to within one win of the conference finals. Simply astounding.

On the other bench, Joel Quennville has been struggling with adversity for the first time this season, and his team seems to be wilting.

Jonathan Toews has been a no show, Corey Crawford has been good but human, Brent Seabrook last games was awful.

The Blackhawks seem to be in panic mode while the Red Wings function like the well oiled machine that won the cup in 2008 and made the finals in 2009.

With their backs against the wall after owning the NHL all season, can the Hawks step up?
