Brandon Saad considers Game 4 on Saturday to be a "must win."

"We let one slip away last night so we have a big one coming up," Saad added. Chicago suffered a 2-1 loss to Anaheim on Thuesday after squeaking ahead with a triple-overtime victory in Game 2. The Blackhawks will certainly have their work ahead of them if they drop Game 4, but they're talented enough and have done well enough in this series to make it hard to dismiss them even if Anaheim takes a 3-1 series lead.

Brandon Saad has been producing more offense of late, but he wants to keep working on his consistency.

"I think I’m just trying to get better every game," Saad said. "Regardless of scoring or not, I want to play well and a full 60 [minutes]. The pucks are going in but I’m just trying to progress." The 22-year-old is playing on the Hawks' top line with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, and it has paid off for him. "He started off, not at the level we’re looking for, kind of like our team in the first part of the season. But he’s definitely picked things up," coach Joel Quenneville said. "That line, a lot of nights, is tough to contain. They’re playing against top defense pairings and top lines and a lot of nights are in the offensive zone. Saader’s dangerous off the rush. But he’s a threat coming out of our own end as well."

The only positive thing for the Blackhawks to come out of Friday's embarassing 5-2 loss to the Oilers was the play of the team's number one line.

The unit centered by Jonathan Toews with Marian Hossa and Brandon Saad on the wings, accounted for both goals and all six points in the loss. "They were dangerous. That line does a lot of good things," coach Joel Quenneville said after the game. "A couple two-on-ones and Saad-er just goes to the net. That's how you score a lot in this league." Saad now has 12 goals and is well on the way to a 25-30 goal season. He is fourth in Chicago scoring with 27 points in 42 games and is making a good case for a nice contract extension.
