In four regular season meetings, Phoenix beat Chicago three times, shutting out the Blackhawks once. Chicago finished the regular season fifth in the NHL in goals scored per game, and with a defense that has been shaky at times this season, it may be that the offense is what the team will have to rely on for a series win against Phoenix, and any further success in the postseason.
Game Date & Time: Thursday, April 12, 9:00 p.m. CT
TV: CSN-Chicago, NBC Sports Network
