Setting the Stage for Critical Game 4 in Red Wings-Blackhawks Series

Game 4 is the biggest game of the year for the Detroit Red Wings and it may well tell the story for the rest of the playoffs. If the Red wings can come out and handle the Blackhawks like they did in Games 2 and 3, watch out. A young team with the amount of confidence that could result from taking a 3-1 lead on heavily-favored Chicago would be tough for anyone to beat. Jimmy Howard...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Thursday

Just a few things that caught my eye: Brad Richards, popcorn vendor? I know he has struggled, but there's no way be should be in the press box. No bloody way.
