If the Blackhawks are going to repeat what they have done in the past, they will find success throughout the remainder of the series. Chicago does not always play well in the early games in a playoff series, but they almost always respond in the late going. They trailed the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 in the Western Conference Final before winning three of the last four games to clinch the series. The Blackhawks were in a similar position in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins, but they responded by winning the final three games of the series. Since 2010, the Blackhawks are 26-25 in Games 1-3 of any playoff series.
For the Lightning, it’s a matter of going out and executing their game plan and limiting their turnovers. With the roster pretty much healthy at this point (Rudy Balcers is still out, but is practicing with the team) it’s a matter of finding the right combinations outside of the top line in order to generate depth scoring. The team can’t go into the playoffs relying on just their power play and the Brayden Point line to provide all of the offense. Based on yesterday’s practice lines it appears Anthony Cirelli and Alex Killorn will flank Stamkos on the second line while Nick Paul, Ross Colton, and Patrick Maroon make up the third line. For Stamkos, he enters action with 498 career goals against a team that he has scored 16 goals in 25 games against.
If the Bolts stay disciplined and committed to their game plan, they should kick off 2023 with a nice win.

While the Bolts have their eyes set on the playoffs and another run at the Stanley Cup, it wouldn’t be surprising if most of the Chicagoland area is focusing more on how Connor Bedard is doing than how Connor Murphy is playing. As it stands right now, Chicago, currently in last play in the league, has the best odds of landing the dynamic playmaker who is tearing up the World Juniors right now. They’ve lost four in a row and are 1-9 in their last 10 games. While the banners still hang from the rafters, the glory of their run in the 2010s is fading fast.
However, they are 35-11 in Games 4-7 over that same time frame. As a result of that past success, the Blackhawks remain confident as they prepare for Game 4. However, those numbers alone are not going to help them beat the quick, athletic and skilled Lightning. Tampa Bay responded with two third-period goals Monday night in Game 3 to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory.

However, the Lightning can’t let history or current struggles allow them to take it easy tonight. Chicago does have enough talent to put Lightning mistakes into the back of the net. Kane is still up to his old tricks with 27 points (7 goals, 20 assists) in 36 games while Jonathan Toews has rediscovered his goal-scoring tough with 11 in 35 games, just one off the total he put up last season. Some familiar names dot the ‘Hawks roster as Tyler Johnson has persevered through some injuries to earn a spot on their top line with 8 points (3 goals, 5 assists) in just 14 games. Taylor Raddysh has discovered his goal-scoring with 10 goals (second on the team behind Toews and Max Domi) while Boris Katchouk has 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) while finding time on the fourth line.
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has just one assist in the first three games of the series, while running mate Patrick Kane has not registered any points. Toews knows the Blackhawks are not where they want to be after three games, but he is confident the team has the ability to turn the Stanley Cup Final around. Charles Rex Arbogast/Associated Press“You’re not always going to be in complete control of a series, ” Toews told Ken Campbell of the Hockey News. “We’ve been up in series, we’ve been down in some series, especially this year. Here we are down 2-1. I think we’re confident we can go out there and find a way to even it up tomorrow night.
