So, how do you prepare for such an unknown opponent? Well, if you're Joel Quennville, apparently you start making line changes before you've even played the first shift of the series. Is he nuts, or are we? On paper, these teams should both have ferocious offenses, meat-grinder D-lines, and brick wall goaltending... but on paper, Chicago would be using the same lineup it beat LA with, not bringing in some headbanger who hasn't played since last May.
Contrary to the widespread belief that this one will go the distance, I think the Bruins take an early lead in this one and never really relinquish it, but I'll give the 'Hawks one for spoiler's sake. Boston in five. Currently 8 for 14 on calls and dead even in game estimation.
