NewsThe Chicago Blackhawks ended a long power-play drought with not one, but two, goals with the man advantage in their 4-1 triumph over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 5 of their playoff series Saturday night.
ImpactIt was satisfying particularly to point man Duncan Keith. Keith's shot from the point - the Hawks' sixth shot attempt of the series- finally gave the Blackhawks' power play its long-awaited payoff when his slap shot was deflected by Shaw past Howard for a tie-breaking goal with 6:52 left in the second period that ultimately made the difference in the Hawks' 4-1 victory over the Red Wings on Saturday night at the United Center. ``That's what we need,'' Keith said. ``[Shaw] made a nice tip there. But more than that he's in front of the net. It's the screen that we need. It's not rocket science. it's keeping it simple, moving the puck and taking what they give you. We did that tonight. I don't know why we haven't been able to do that before.'' Shaw's goal broke a streak of 13 scoreless power-play opportunities - a spate of futility that was worse than the numbers indicated.

ImpactKeith had played with Brent Seabrook for most of the last nine seasons but coach Joel Quenneville wanted to change the pairings so Seabrook got a new partner in Nick Leddy while Keith and Hjalmarsson were matched up. "I played with 'Hammer' one time," Keith said Saturday. "We were joking around about that. I think it was one game in San Jose, so that's once out of (all or parts of) six seasons, but we played good together that game. For me it's easy to play with him. He chips the puck out, gets it in, it's real simple. I think the fact he likes to stay home allows me the confidence to get up in the play, knowing he's gonna be back. It's not that hard. You just read off of each other. Defense is one position where it's all about positioning."
