Duncan Keith is embracing the underdog role in their upcoming qualifying round series against Edmonton.
"It’s going to be a tough series against Edmonton," Keith said. "They have two of the best players in the world - if not THE two best to players in the world in (Connor) McDavid and (Leon) Draisaitl. But it’s not just those two guys. There (are) other players on their team that are dangerous. They were ahead of us in the standings, so we know we’ve got our work cut out for us. But we’re excited to have this opportunity and show that we belong and we could make some noise as an underdog." Chicago had a 32-30-8 record in the regular season before the pause. If not for the season being suspended and the playoffs consequently expanded, it's unlikely that the Blackhawks would have ended up participating in the postseason. That said, they're here now and with an experienced core, they could end up giving Edmonton plenty of trouble. Jul 15 5:16 am (EST)
