Original Recipe: The Red Wings and Blackhawks meet in Game 1 tonight in a battle of Original Six teams. Four of the eight teams still alive in the NHL playoffs are Original Six teams (Bruins, Rangers, Red Wings, Blackhawks). From Elias: This is only the second time since the NHL went to the current conference-based playoff format in 1994 that at least four Original Six teams are among the final eight. It also happened in 2010.
