|Red Wings, Blackhawks Prepare For Game 7
|CHICAGO (AP) -- You know it's a big game when The Rolling Stones is the opening act.
The Chicago Blackhawks are set to host the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of their second-round playoff series on Wednesday, a night after the great rock `n' roll band plays the United Center.
Taking down the stage after the performance and preparing the ice for the game will be a massive undertaking, but the Blackhawks say they aren't worried about the surface. They're just excited about the opportunity after being down 3-1 at one point in the series.
Chicago regained the momentum with a 4-1 victory in Game 5, and then stayed alive with a 4-3 win in Detroit on Monday night. Now the Red Wings get one day to regroup for their second Game 7 on the road this postseason.
