You’d think “Who is the pressure on in Game 5, the Blackhawks or the Kings?” was a stupid question until you hear the answers.
“I think right now the pressure is all on them,” Hawks forward Patrick Kane said. “Obviously being up 3-1 position you never want to lose that in the series. We have a great opportunity tonight playing in front of our home fans to get another win and that’s how we’re looking at it right now. We don’t feel any pressure in here. If there is any pressure, it’s probably all on the Kings.”
