This year in a lockout shortened season the Hawks were hot and so hot they were at the top of the NHL's Western Conference and breezed past the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the playoffs in five games. After three games in the second round the Black Hawks are down by one game against the Detroit Red Wings.
This year's playoffs are interesting in that I read that this is the first time in a long time that all of the Original Six franchises made the playoffs. The Original Six in addition to the Hawks and Red Wings are the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, and New York Rangers. The Bruins and Rangers are facing each other in the second round of the playoffs.
In any event in covering the Black Hawks during the course of their Stanley Cup winning run, it's now time to cover them. I'm not going to show highlights of the last series, however, what we can see here are the highlights of the last three games against the Wings.

The next game is in Detroit on Thursday starting at 8 PM Eastern. Alas I won't be able to watch, however, it will be my goal to watch the highlights and of course share them with you when the game is over!
