What the Blackhawks need to do to win: Get Jonathan Toews scoring and make sure Patrick Kane continues his scoring. Toews only has one goal these playoffs, while Kane only had two before the series against the Los Angeles Kings. The Bruins showed they could shut down stars in Sidney Crosby, Evegni Malkin, Jarome Iginla and James Neal. The Hawks need to be sure that doesn’t happen to them.

What the Bruins need to do to win: Score more goals. They may have scored a lot against the Penguins in the first two games, but the Bruins only scored three times in the last two games. That will not work against the Blackhawks, who have been scoring at a high rate throughout the playoffs.
