Midwest Sports Fans:
The shortened, 48-game NHL regular season is over and the conference seeds and matchups are set. It’s time for some playoff hockey.
Here in the Midwest, we’re lucky to see two of our own teams face off in the first round. The No. 1 seed Chicago Blackhawks and the No. 8 seed Minnesota Wild played each other three times in the regular season with Chicago winning two out of the three matchups.
This will be the first time the two teams have played each other in the postseason, so these should be interesting games to watch.
It’s hard to play any better than the Chicago Blackhawks did in the regular season. They won the Presidents’ Trophy with a 36-7-5 record, their goaltenders will share the Jennings Trophy, and their top players, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, lead the team in points.
It’s also hard to agree any other team in the league – besides the Pittsburgh Penguins – have better scoring forwards. Chicago is extremely dangerous on offense. You would think that would t...

ST. PAUL, Minn. Listening to Mike Rupp speak about winning the Stanley Cup, it's easy to see why the road to the championship is at once rewarding and agonizing.
Getting the chance to lift the cup after surviving the playoffs is special. Even 10 years since Rupp won the Stanley Cup for the only time so far in his career, the scenes of the playoffs gone by can run through Rupp...

Chicago Blackhawk’s Bryan Bickell flew down the ice on a 2 on 1 situation and after receiving a pass from Viktor Stalberg, completely undresses Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding. Harding bit on Bickell’s first move and just laid there as Bickell slid the puck into the net to cap off game 1 of the 7 game series.

The NHL made the "2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series" official today. The Pittsburgh Penguins will meet the Chicago Blackhawks at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at Soldier Field.
This could be the most unnecessary event that we'll ever watch with great intensity.

We've covered this before here at Puck Drunk Love; the NHL previously announced that they would be holding six outdoor games next season instead of the usual one. We both believe that it waters down a very special event for the league to do this, and it basically boils down to a cash grab after a lockout shortened season. You have to be blind as a bat to believe that it's...
