After a game one victory that most fans consider lucky, the Blackhawks dropped games two and three. It is estimated that around 81% of teams that go down 1-2 in the cup tend to lose it, however the Hawks aren’t panicking. No, they have been in this exact spot on more than one occasion. The most recent was the Western Conference Finals of this year, when the Hawks fell early in the series to the Anaheim Ducks.
The Hawks came back to win the series, scoring 10 goals in their last two games. If there’s one thing we know about the Blackhawks, its that they’re best when their backs are against the wall. Hell, Jonathan Toews himself stated “confidence” when asked about the future of this series.
While it’s certainly NOT time to count out the Chicago Blackhawks, it is time to fully comprehend the strength of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The fast, high powered offence put itself in a very good position to eliminate our hometown favorites. Settle in, Blackhawks fans; the Lightning mean business.
