In fact, both seemed a bit shocked when asked if they sometimes rib Carter about being older.
"No, not at all, I think we kind of look at him for advice, if anything. Not trying to rag on him that he's older than us," Pearson said.
The Blackhawks, too, were being forced to answer lots of postgame questions about the success of the Carter line.
"They've got great speed, they've got great skill and they're strong on the puck. They made plays today and they capitalized and they scored," said Blackhawks center Michal Handzus, who saw a lot of the group the past couple of games.
He said they need to be stronger on the puck and compete every second.
"And those little details right now, they're doing a better job than us," he said.
In the end, the more imposing problem for the Hawks isn't answering questions about the Carter group, but coming up with an answer for them on the ice.
And they better do it quickly.
