Deep Blackhawks Present Challenge For Red Wings' D
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Blackhawks have waves of talented lines, making them a difficult matchup for any team.

Months after Nicklas Lidstrom retired, they pose quite the challenge for the Detroit Red Wings in their second-round playoff series that begins Wednesday night.

Chicago's deep group of forwards against Detroit's refurbished defense is one major area to watch when the Blackhawks host the Red Wings in Game 1.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock says the Blackhawks will test his defensemen, while Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says the Red Wings have improved over the course of the season.
