Chicago vs Minnesota: Blackhawks Are Road Chalk Versus Wild
Western Conference semifinal playoff action is our focus as we check in on the Minnesota Wild versus Chicago Blackhawks series. The home team has won the first five games of this compelling match-up but, if the Hawks can reverse that trend, they will advance to the Western Conference Final. Puck drop is scheduled for 9:00 PM ET on May 13, 2014, from what will be a wild Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Hawks advance here.
Major winning trend points to defending Cup Champs tonight
Chicago has won the Stanley Cup in two of the past four years for many solid reasons but, one stands high above the others. In the era of superstars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane that began in 2009, and under the guidance of head coach Joel Quenneville, the Blackhawks are a perfect 13-0 in games five and six of a playoff series that’s been tied at two. That includes game five wins versus Detroit and Minnesota during the 2014 NHL postseason.
Minnesota looks to extend perfect 5-0 home playoff winning streak
Saint Paul has been going Wild for the past three weeks or so as Minnesota has yet to lose a playoff game on their home pond. In fact, they have been downright dominant has their five straight wins are by a combined 16-5 final count. If they can keep that streak rolling – they’ll be Windy City bound. While the Xcel Energy Center is a nightmare for visiting teams, the Hawks won Game Four here (3-0) in the quarterfinal playoffs last season.
