Blackhawks at Red Wings: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Chicago Blackhawks at Detroit Red Wings (+116, 5)

Detroit leads series 3-2.

The top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks took the first step toward making a comeback from a 3-1 deficit in their Western Conference second-round matchup with the seventh-seeded Detroit Red Wings. The Presidents' Trophy winners attempt to continue their climb and even the series when the Original Six rivals meet at Joe Louis Arena for Game 6 on Monday. Chicago posted a 4-1 victory in Game 1 before its offense went silent, scoring a total of two goals in three consecutive losses.

Detroit squandered a chance to advance to the conference final and gain some much-needed rest as it suffered its second 4-1 loss of the series in Game 5 on Saturday. Andrew Shaw scored a pair of goals and captain Jonathan Toews netted his first of the playoffs for the Blackhawks, who entered the third period leading by two but didn't let up as they outshot the Red Wings 17-4 in the session. The good news for the Red Wings is that defenseman Niklas Kronwall is expected to play after sitting out the second half of the third period on Saturday following a crushing check by Chicago's Bryan Bickell.

ABOUT THE BLACKHAWKS: Toews feels as if a weight has been lifted off his shoulders now that he has that first playoff goal under his belt. The center had seven tallies in each of his first two postseasons but has scored only four times in 23 games over the last three playoff years. "It's just nice to see one go in," Toews said. "You work so hard for so many games, not only for yourself but your linemates, the guys that are out there with you. It builds your confidence." Although Chicago entered the playoffs as the favorite in the West to reach the Stanley Cup final, Shaw believes the Blackhawks now are playing with house money. "The pressure's on (the Red Wings) to eliminate us; they have our backs against the wall," he said. "Everyone thinks that Detroit's going to take the series. The pressure's off us." Bickell scored the first goal of the game on Saturday, firing the puck into the net so hard, it broke the goal cam. "Hopefully, I don't get billed for it," he joked.

ABOUT THE RED WINGS: Kronwall sacrificed his own body to save teammate Henrik Zetterberg, who would have been targeted by Bickell had the defenseman passed the puck to the captain a few seconds earlier. "I saw (Bickell) coming. I just tried to hold on to the puck as long as I could before I gave it to Hank, so that guy couldn't jump Hank," Kronwall told the Detroit News. Despite allowing four goals, Jimmy Howard was Detroit's best player in Game 5 as he turned aside 41 shots. Howard knows his team needs to put forth a better effort in order to avoid a seventh game in Chicago. "They were better than us (Saturday)," Howard told the News. "(Game 6) is in our building, we better be fired up to play." Dan Cleary, who scored the lone goal for the Red Wings, agreed. "We have to be ready to go Monday night as if our backs are against the wall," he said. "Which I like to think they are."

TRENDS:

* Home team is 5-1 in the last six meetings.
* Under is 19-5-4 in the last 28 meetings.
* Under is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings in Detroit.
* Blackhawks are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Detroit.
* Blackhawks are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

OVERTIME:

1. Chicago was 4-for-4 on the penalty kill Saturday and is 35-for-36 overall this postseason.

2. The Red Wings have won eight consecutive home playoff games against the Blackhawks.

3. Detroit has outscored Chicago 11-10 through five contests despite being outshot 175-134.

2013 NHL Playoffs

Presidents' Cup winner Blackhawks need road win here to force Game 7 at home; they are 1-3 on road in playoffs, with only win in Game 4 at Minnesota. Under is 15-3-4 in last 22 series games. Five of Chicago's six playoff wins were by 3+ goals; they're 1-3 in games decided by 1-2 goals. Detroit has more power plays than Chicago, but is 1-18 on power play, while Chicago is 3-16. Chicago had won last four visits here before losing Games 1-2 in this series. Kings won Stanley Cup as #8 seed in west LY; can Red Wings advance to western finals as the #7 seed? Home teams are 18-3 in this round of playoffs, with under 11-6-4, 2-0-3 in this series.
