CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks have worked hard to get here. But not being able to close out the series after pushing it to Game 7 would be like falling off the mountain while planting the flag.

None of it matters if the Blackhawks aren't able to win their Western Conference semifinal against the Detroit Red Wings, having been heavy favourites coming into the series.

The teams play for all the marbles Wednesday (8 p.m. EST) at the United Center.

"We're excited, I think we worked hard to get it back here for Game 7, and we're excited about the opportunity," said Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith. "We're happy to play in front of our crowd and be in our building. We're going to use that energy from our fans as best we can. But that doesn't change the way the game is played. It is still played the same way, so we're going to have to be good.
