The Detroit Red Wings have gotten much younger than they used to be. And now, as the Chicago Blackhawks are finding out, Detroit is a much better team than it was during the lockout-delayed regular season thanks to its improved cast of inexperienced players such as rookies Brendan Smith, Joakim Andersson and Gustav Nyquist and first-year player Damien Brunner. Chicago is counting on a young, but experienced, player as the second-round series shifts to Detroit for Game 3 tonight (4:30 p.m., NBC Sports). Captain Jonathan Toews, a 25-year-old center, is in an eight-game postseason scoring slump that dates to last year. – Associated Press
