GAME 1 REVIEW
Quote:
CHICAGO -- For one period, the Chicago Blackhawks looked like a team that hadn't played in nearly a week.

For the next two Wednesday night at United Center, they looked the club that blitzed teams en route to the top seed in the Western Conference and a place among the favorites to claim the Stanley Cup.

Jimmy Howard withstood wave after wave of pressure from the Blackhawks, but eventually even a great performance from the Detroit Red Wings' goaltender wasn't enough.

Johnny Oduya and Marcus Kruger scored a little more than three minutes apart midway through the third period and the Blackhawks defeated the Red Wings 4-1 in Game 1 of this Western Conference Semifinals series.

"I thought it was our best game of the playoffs, no question," Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp, who finished with a goal and two assists, said. "[Coach] Joel [Quenneville] can probably answer that better than I can. Personally, it was a tough start. Those first couple shifts the building was hot and the legs were a little stiff, but it was probably because we were for a week. I thought we played better as the game went on, and didn't have too many breakdowns out there."

Howard faced a flurry of shots after the Blackhawks looked a little rusty in the first period from the layoff after wrapping up their first-round series last Thursday. After just six shots on net in the first period, the Blackhawks peppered Howard with 27 in the next 28 minutes and eventually broke through.
