Just when most thought that the Blackhawks would roll through the Wild like they did last year, now, some may be worrying. I am not panicking yet concerned would be the right word. The wheels have come off in these last two games. The Blackhawks and Wild were scoreless going into the third period of Game Three, only to fall apart. Game Four arrives and they were completely outplayed from the start. The Wild score and the Blackhawks responded back two different times to tie it. Then, the Wild pull away right after.
The Blackhawks have been in this position two different times under Joel Quenneville and they came back to win the series both times. The first time coming in 2009 in the first round against the Flames. The Blackhawks won the first two, lost the next two on the road and then came back to win the last two. The second time was in 2010 in the Final against the Flyers. Won the first two home, lose the next two on the road and proceed to win the next two, ultimately leading to the Cup.
If any team can do it again, it’s the Blackhawks.
