After being shut out in Game 1, the Blackhawks know they have to find a way to make life more difficult for Preds goalie Pekka Rinne.
"That's no secret in playoff hockey, that it's always going to be those greasy goals that aren't always pretty plays," defenseman Duncan Keith said. "It comes down to having a little more determination and, like (Quenneville) said, that desperation — pick it up a bit. Maybe that'll be the difference." The Blackhawks will look to even up the best-of-seven series at home on Saturday night. Apr 15 - 9:36 AM

Duncan Keith played in his 900th career game on Friday.

Keith has played all those contests with the Chicago Blackhawks. Keith was drafted in 2002 and didn't break into the NHL until 2005, but since he started his NHL career he's been a mainstay with the Blackhawks and hasn't been hampered much by injuries. In fact, ignoring the lockout shortened campaign, he's appeared in at least 67 contests in each season. He's also appeared in at least 75 games in eight of 10 campaigns, excluding the lockout shortened campaign and this one, where he will likely at least reach the 75-game mark again but isn't there yet.
