* The Blackhawks beat the Predators, 4-3, in double-overtime in Game 1 despite trailing 3-0 at the end of the first period. Prior to Wednesday’s Game 1, the last time Chicago came back to win a playoff game when trailing its opponent by three goals at the end of the first period was in a 6-5 win at Minnesota on April 8, 1991 (trailed, 5-2, at the end of the first period).

* The Blackhawks have won 23 of 32 best-of-seven series all-time when leading 1-0, while the Predators are 0-5 all-time when trailing 0-1 in a best-of-seven playoff series.

* Chicago has now scored at least four goals in each of its last four playoff games dating back to last postseason, the Blackhawks’ longest postseason streak with at least four goals since doing so in five straight games from May 16-26, 1992.

* The Predators have now lost all 13 of their playoff games when allowing at least four goals all-time and have split their 38 postseason matchups when allowing fewer than four goals (19 wins and 19 losses).

* Patrick Kane had two assists in Game 1, his fourth consecutive playoff game with at least two points dating back to last season. Kane has totaled 93 points in the postseason since his first playoff game in 2009, the most in the NHL over that span.

* Viktor Stalberg, who scored his first career postseason goal in his second career playoff game back on April 15, 2011 at Vancouver (as a member of the Blackhawks), snapped a streak of 30 playoff games without a goal by scoring his second career postseason goal in Game 1.
