- Mike Smith continues to just dominate opposing shooters at this time of year as he made another 43 saves in game one of this series. You want to talk about peaking at the right time? Smith is a rocket right now. Epic peaking at the right time.
- No new injuries for Chicago after game one. Radim Vrbata was a question mark after sustaining an upper body injury in game one but will play in game two.
