Chicago Blackhawks leads 2-0 West Finals

The Chicago Blackhawks wins their record-tying seventh road win in the playoffs. They just beat the tough San Jose Sharks in Game 2, leading the series in the Western Conference Finals two-to-nothing. The Sharks will have a lot of catching up to do, while the Blackhawks cannot afford to be complacent early in this series despite their standings.

“We were just trying to get different guys out there,” Dustin Byfuglien said, talking about strategies Chicago employed in Game 1. “Kaner just got me the puck in the open area and I just shot.”

There weren’t much controversial events in Game 2 compared to the previous game when officials were believed to have been “blind” in the final 55 seconds.

“Yeah,” San Jose coach Todd McLellan said, “everyone saw it. Everyone saw it but them (referees Paul Devorski and Brad Watson). We were screaming.”

The Blackhawks have a chance again in the Finals, something that was last seen 18 years ago.
