Duncan Keith admitted that his team needs to play better in front of their goaltenders going forward.

The Hawks eliminated the Nashville Predators on Saturday night, but they still believe there is room for improvement. "It’s not fair to the goalie, the way we played in front of him," Duncan Keith said, "Corey in the first [game], and then Darls tonight. We know we’ve got great goaltending. It’s not that. It’s more how we play in front of them. And I think we kind of pulled it together and realized, hey, that’s not acceptable." The Blackhawks have been forced to swap goaltenders a few times in the playoffs already.
