POLL NO. 1: BLACK­HAWKS-OIL­ERS, BEST OF 5, BE­GIN­NING SATUR­DAY: WHO WINS?

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Up­shot: The Hawks won two of three in the teams’ reg­u­lar-sea­son se­ries, which means next to noth­ing. Is it pos­si­ble the Hawks’ and Oil­ers’ records through 70 and 71 games, re­spec­tively, mean next to noth­ing, too? That’s the kind of dis­mis­sive talk we’re hear­ing from in­side the bub­ble, any­way. If there is a clear ad­van­tage in the Hawks’ fa­vor, it’s in post­sea­son ex­pe­ri­ence (al­though a skep­tic might point out their ex­pe­ri­ence hasn’t helped them win a play­off round since their last Stan­ley Cup ti­tle in 2015). And the old dudes shall lead them.
