It's back to work for the Blackhawks tonight with the series in Boston tied at one game apiece. There's a feeling that the Bruins may have not only stolen the home ice advantage but also taken the momentum. It was a bitter pill for the Hawks to swallow losing Game 2 in overtime at home. The Bruins clearly played better in the extra period.
So now the next two games will be Boston Monday and Wednesday night. The Blackhawks know the crowd will be as loud as the one the Bruins faced at the United Center.
Chicago's Duncan Keith says it won't faze the team.
“We go into these games knowing that everybody in the building’s going to be against us,” Keith said. “I think we just try and block everything out.”
One matter the Hawks have to cure: scoring when they have the opportunity.
