The Hawks were down 3-1 in the series against Detroit, but remarkably they were close to down for the count only to come back and eventually win game 7. So a 4-3 series victory for the Hawks and on to the next round of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs!
The Hawks will host the Kings at the United Center on Saturday on June 1st with faceoff scheduled at 4 PM CST. In the Eastern Conference the Pittsburgh Penguins will host the Boston Bruins at the CONSOL Energy Center also on June 1st with a faceoff at 8 PM EST.
There are times like this where I wish I knew how to be a prognosticator. It has been noted by many sports fans that the Stanley Cup final four were the most recent Stanley Cup champs. The Kings in 2012, the Bruins in 2011, the Hawks in 2010, and the Penguins in 2009. This should be very interesting!
