In a best-of-seven series, the Game 1 winner has gone on to win the series 68.4 percent (405-187) of the time in NHL history. In the past two years, Game 1 winners have won 21 of 30 series. … Eight of Chicago’s past nine playoff games have gone to overtime; the Blackhawks are 4-4 in those OTs. … Through the first two days of the playoffs, home teams were 5-1. … Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa scored his 36th career playoff goal in Game 1, 10th among active NHLers. … On Tuesday, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville coached his 140th playoff game. Wild coach Mike Yeo his first. The 139-game difference is the largest between opposing playoff coaches since the 2002 Stanley Cup Final, when Detroit’s Scotty Bowman (348 games) faced Carolina’s Paul Maurice (30).
