Surprising Wings deserve lead over Blackhawks

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Just because the Detroit Red Wings were the beneficiaries of a controversial no-goal call late in Game 3, it doesn't mean the seventh-seeded club isn't making its own breaks.
When they drew the mighty Chicago Blackhawks in the second round, the Red Wings were given little hope of winning the Western Conference semifinal matchup. After all, the Blackhawks have been pegged as the favorites out West for months, but as recently as a few weeks ago, Detroit was happy just to be included in the playoffs.
Despite all the hype surrounding the top-seeded Blackhawks, the upstart Red Wings are the ones holding a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
