Road mindset: Host Hawks to stay in hotel
By Jesse Rogers
CHICAGO -- After Friday's morning skate, the Chicago Blackhawks will check into a hotel before Game 3 of the Western Conference finals later that night against the San Jose Sharks.
It's an attempt to bring the Blackhawks' road mentality back home with them. Chicago has won seven straight road playoff games, tying an NHL record. Meanwhile, the Hawks have struggled at the United Center, going 3-3 in the postseason.
