Blackhawks' coach Joel Queneville didn't hide his frustration after Game 2. "That was frustration to a different level," he said. "That wasn't fun to watch. We dug ourselves a tremendous hole across the board--not too many positives came out of tonight's game." According to NHL.com's Brian Hedger, the struggles for Chicago start at the top. Here's an excerpt from his recap of last night's game for the NHL's website:
Last 2 goalies to record consecutive shutouts to open a playoff series:— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) April 16, 2017
Both coached by Peter Laviolette.
Toews and Kane have one goal between them in Chicago's past nine playoff games. Toews hasn't scored in 11 straight postseason games, dating to the second period of Game 4 in the 2015 Stanley Cup"We're going to need our best players, our experienced guys, to show what it takes and what's necessary to find a way to not just win a game but to find momentum and compete," Queneville said. Game 3 of the series is at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Monday night.
