from Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago,
No one move will make the difference, it’s a cumulative effect, but now that the Wings have proved they can play with the Hawks it’s time for the favorite to get serious. Speed and chaos – as seen in Game 1 -- is called for and the Hawks have been able to accomplish that at Joe Louis Arena lately as much as any team in the league. But Detroit has been decent enough in Chicago over the years too. They were again on Saturday.
“They had the puck a lot tonight,” Kane said. “Took a page out of our game. I felt like we were chasing the puck all the time.”
That was Detroit’s game before it was the Hawks’. The Wings never stopped playing that way, they simply haven’t been as good at it over the last few years. Saturday showed they can still bring it, if their seven-game series win over the Ducks didn’t.
