The Blackhawks will face the Kings for the second consecutive year in the Western Conference Final. The Blackhawks are attempting to become the first Stanley Cup defending champion to make it back to the final since Detroit in 2009.
The Kings win over Anaheim in their western conference semifinal matchup meant the Blackhawks gained home ice for the conference finals. It saved them from having to take a four hour flight to Anaheim for the series opener. The Kings will be the one taking a four hour flight about 36 hours before game time. It remains to be seen how it will affect outcome of game one.
Kenny Albert, Joe Micheletti and Brian Engblom will be announcing the series for NBC and NBC Sports. Comcast Sports Net Chicago will have full coverage following the game with Pat Boyle and Steve Konroyd. Ed Olczyk is announcing the Eastern Conference Finals.
