    look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their
    last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals. Gustav Nyquist and
    Drew Miller scored 31 seconds apart midway through the second period and
    Pavel Datsyuk restored a two-goal lead in the third to help Detroit beat the
    Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 Monday night and take a 2-1 lead in the second round
    series. As good as the Red Wings have looked -- scoring six straight goals to
    earn momentum in the matchup -- their hard-driving coach isnt ready to
    celebrate. "We havent done anything yet," Mike Babcock said. Thats an
    understatement. If the seventh-seeded Red Wings keep playing like they are, the
    top-seeded Blackhawks will have a long off-season to wonder what went wrong in a
    season that looked like it was going to be special. On Thursday night at home in
    Game 4, Detroit has a shot to put Chicago on the brink of elimination. "It takes
    something like this to slap you in the face, so to speak, to really understand
    what adversity is and how tough the playoffs can be," Blackhawks captain
    Jonathan Toews said. "A lot of guys in this room have been in tough positions
    before in the playoffs and thats never stopped us. We know this is a long series
    and were going to be fighting until the end." Chicagos chances will improve if
    Toews can end his goal-scoring skid. He doesnt have a goal in nine playoff
    games, dating to last year. He matched Patrick Kane with a team-high 23 goals in
    the 48-game, lockout-shortened season. Toews did have a game-high seven shots in
    Game 3, but Jimmy Howard and his backchecking, shot-blocking teammates wouldnt
    let him end his drought. "Im not going to let it get the best of me," Toews
    said. "I know Im doing good things. Im very confident that its going to come."
    Kane scored 4:35 into the third period to pull Chicago within one. About a
    minute later, the Blackhawks celebrated as if they tied the game, but
    Andrew Shaws goal was waved off because he was in the crease. Chicago coach Joel
    Quenneville said he disagreed with the call that negated Shaws game-tying score.
    "He didnt touch the goalie," Quenneville said. And Chicagos goalie,
    Corey Crawford, couldnt touch Datsyuks shot 6:46 into the final period that went
    in and out of the net before he saw it. Crawford finished with 27 saves. Howard
    stopped 39 shots. Chicago has lost consecutive games for the first time in
    nearly two months. The Blackhawks began the lockout-delayed season by setting an
    NHL record with at least a point in their first 24 games, ended it with a
    league-high 77 points and avoided having a three-game losing streak. "The team
    is facing a little adversity and I am on a personal basis," Toews said. "Not
    going to let that stop us or me." After a scoreless first period in a hot and
    steamy Joe Louis Arena, Detroit took a 2-0 lead with a pretty goal and a gritty
    one. Nyquist patiently carried the puck from right to left and waited for
    defenceman Brent Seabrook and Crawford to sprawl out to make a shot before
    shooting the puck into the open net. "Hes real good at hanging onto the puck,"
    Babcock said. Miller crashed the net to stuff the puck into the net after
    Patrick Eaves got to his own rebound to keep pressure on Crawford. Blackhawks
    defenceman Michal Rozsival started the sequence with a turnover in the Chicago
    end. It was a sixth straight goal for the Red Wings, who lost the series opener
    4-1 and gave up the first goal of Game 2 before going on to even the series with
    a 4-1 victory. "Theyre a real good team and theyre going to carry the play at
    times," Babcock said. "Were a good team and were going to carry the play at
    times." NOTES: Babcock won his 77th post-season game, matching Quenneville for
    the most among active coaches and trailing Pat Burns by one victory for 8th
    place on the NHLs all-time list. ... Chicago hasnt given up a power play goal in
    its first eight playoff games, matching the 2001 St. Louis Blues for the longest
    such streak since 1988, according to STATS. ... The Blackhawks put
    Viktor Stalberg back in the lineup, and scratched Daniel Carcillo, and Stalberg
    got shook up early in the game, missing a check and going head first into the
    boards. Cheap Nets Jerseys China
