Blackhawks Return Home Just One Game Away From Elimination Saturday

Posted by Don Melrose on 5/24/2013 9:03:54 PM

The Chicago Blackhawks were so thoroughly dominant during the regular season that it was difficult to even see any weaknesses in their game. That has changed in the second round of the NHL playoffs, as the Detroit Red Wings have had their way with the Presidents trophy winners and built a commanding three-games-to-one series lead. Chicago is now one online sports betting loss away from elimination, and will be fighting to stay alive at home in game five on Saturday night.

Eastern Conference Semi-Final
New York Rangers @ Boston Bruins
Saturday, 5:30 PM ET – Game 5
Bruins lead 3-1

The Rangers are in a similar position to the Blackhawks, only they have to go on the road for game five and there aren’t many online betting experts that expect them to come back in this series. New York came within inches of losing game four and being eliminated a couple of times in that overtime period, but managed to stay alive and force a game five. The setting will be much different on Saturday night as the series shifts back to Boston, and the Rangers will need to play better than they did on Thursday. The Bruins allowed a three-games-to-one series lead to evaporate in to a 4-1 deficit in the third period of game seven against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and while they managed to get out of that jam with a historic comeback they won’t want to try their luck again. Boston does not want to have to head back to New York for game six, so look for them to come out and play like that on their way to a series-clinching win.

If an online sportsbook member had said at any point during the Blackhawks’ historic 24-game point streak to open the season that this same team would be facing a three-games-to-one series deficit heading in to game five of its second round series with Detroit, he probably would have been laughed at. However, that has now become the reality in this series, as Chicago needs to find a way to win at home this Saturday just to stay alive. Captain Jonathan Toews is one of many Blackhawks’ players that have been frustrated throughout this series, and it came to a boiling point in their game-four loss. Toews was called for three separate penalties in the second period alone, and his inability to find the back of the net has left a major hole up front. Chicago must find a way to keep its composure Saturday night, as one more loss means they are going home. The Blackhawks have been better on home ice, and the fact that they have to win this game should be enough to get them to focus.
