CHICAGO (AP) It began with a convincing victory for the Blackhawks. Then Jimmy Howard and the Red Wings controlled the action for three straight games, pushing the NHL’s top-seeded team to the brink of elimination.
Then there was the response from Chicago, which found its offense in time to take two in a row and grab at least one more home date.
Back and forth. Back and forth. Enough twists and turns to rival the greatest roller coasters.
The last act of the seesaw series between longtime rivals is set for Wednesday, when the Blackhawks face the Red Wings in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals.
It comes one night after the United Center hosts The Rolling Stones, who know all about exciting sold-out shows.
