Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook took Jonathan Toews (19) under his wing and the star forward responded with his first goal in 11 games in Wednesday’s win at Boston.

And when it comes to weight, the Blackhawks are actually bigger than the Bruins. Chicago's players weighed an average of 201 pounds while Boston's were 200.8 pounds. That's practically svelte compared with the Los Angeles Kings, who tip the scales at an average of 209.9 pounds.

KANE COMES THROUGH: Just like Toews, Patrick Kane had been quiet on offense. That changed Wednesday.

"You know, our line was on the ice for three goals that we had yesterday. I thought all of them were pretty big goals, Toews, myself and obviously Seabrook in overtime, so it's good to be out there and contribute," Kane said.

Kane has seven goals in the postseason but they've come in bunches. He had four in the final two games against Los Angeles in the Western Conference finals and didn't score in the first three games against Boston.

HE SAID IT: Rask on whether he feels more motivation to shut down the Blackhawks after a high-scoring game: "I always like to shut them down, obviously, but I just try not to let in six goals again. I mean you let in six goals, that's not something you look forward to repeating, I guess."
