If fatigue was really a factor, the Wings won't be long for the playoffs. As I said, it will get worse before it gets better, as I doubt any team will get more than 3 games rest between games of the same round. The Wings should have been well rested for this game. If not, their age (and, perhaps, fitness level), is clearly catching up to them.
Agreed. I don't think fatigue was a factor at all. I was merely pointing out that they had a couple days between games. The Hawks came out and played a great game. The Wings were being outshot by 10 at the end of the 2nd period, but really turned it on in the 3rd period. At one point the shots were 40-17. They were outshot 17-5 in the 2nd and 19-9 in the 3rd.

The Wings have to match that intensity in game 2 in order to take one in Chicago.
