Kronwall did a good job shutting down Corey Perry.
Marian Hossa, Chicago Blackhawks, RW
Marian Hossa is an All-Star sniper who is one of the Blackhawks' top offensive players. He once played for the Detroit Red Wings, and he will look to play well against his former team.
In the first round, Hossa scored three goals and had three assists for six points, so look for him to be a top threat for the Blackhawks against the Red Wings.
Damien Brunner, Detroit Red Wings, RW
The Red Wings have a number of different players who can contribute offensively, but Damien Brunner has the chance to be an impact player in this series. Brunner had five points against the Anaheim Ducks, including a game-winning goal in Game 4.
The rookie forward had a solid regular season, and he is a player to keep an eye on during the second round.
Duncan Keith, Chicago Blackhawks, D
Duncan Keith was the Blackhawks' top offensive defenseman in the first round, and he was second on the team in overall scoring. Keith is a quality defenseman who makes an impact when he is on the ice, and he is an extra threat the Red Wings will need to contain during this series.
Niklas Kronwall, Detroit Red Wings, D
Niklas Kronwall is one of the NHL's most punishing defenders in the NHL, and his physicality could help the Red Wings in this series. If he can continue to play a physical game that wears down the opposition, the Blackhawks' top players may be limited offensively in this series.
