* While the team scoring first this series has gone 4-0, the team leading with four minutes left in regulation has gone just 1-3.

* The Blues have lost 10 of their last 11 playoff series that were tied 2-2. The last five playoff series in which the Blackhawks were tied 2-2, they won both Game 5 and Game 6.

* The Blackhawks have lost nine of their last 10 road games (1-8-1), and have scored just three power-play goals over their last 14 road games (including playoffs).
