Thank You Minnesota!!
Thanks to the Minnesota Wild's win over the Dallas Stars, the Chicago Black Hawks will make the playoffs and have an opportunity to defend last years Stanley Cup victory. The Hawks almost let the season slip through their fingers by losing to the Red Wings 4-3 earlier today and had to wait and see what happened in St. Paul, letting their playoff chances rest on the a Dallas lose.
The Hawks will face the Stanley Cup favoured Vancouver Canucks in the first round of the playoffs starting later this week (the NHL will announce the schedule soon), as the Canucks hope to avenge their eliminate the last two years at the hands of the Hawks. Here's hoping history repeats itself!
In the upcoming days, I'll post the post-season schedule and give you my picks for the first round. God, I love this time of year!!
