This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

* The Blackhawks beat the Red Wings, 4-1, on Saturday to force a Game 6 tonight. Chicago has dropped 13 straight best-of-7s when down 2-3, with 11 of those series ending in Game 6.

* Detroit has a best-of-7 mark of 15-1 when leading 3-2 entering Game 6 since 1995-96 – its only setback coming to the Penguins in the 2009 Stanley Cup Final. The Wings have closed out opponents in Game 6 thirteen of the last 16 times they’ve had the chance to do so.
* Andrew Shaw lit the lamp twice in Game 5, garnering first-star accolades for his performance. Shaw’s multi-goal game was just the second of his NHL career and first in the playoffs.
* Daniel Cleary netted the Wings’ lone marker on Saturday, giving him a team-high tying four goals during the 2013 playoffs. Originally drafted by the Blackhawks in 1997, Cleary now has 50 points (24g, 26a) in 119 career postseason games.
* Tonight’s tilt marks the 80th all-time postseason game between the Blackhawks and Red Wings (Chicago leads 41-38). The only team that Chicago has played more playoff contests against is Montreal (81).

* With Chicago’s victory in Game 5, Joel Quenneville now has 78 career postseason wins under his belt – tied with Mike Babcock for most of any active coach. Whichever coach wins tonight’s tilt will move into sole possession of No. 8 on the NHL’s list of most playoff wins all-time (both are currently tied with Pat Burns).
