NHL Playoff Predictions: Chicago Blackhawks' Ideal Matchup in Every Round

The NHL playoffs are fast approaching.

With only six games left, everyone is scoreboard-watching, because even one point can change the whole playoff picture.

Currently, the Blackhawks are sixth in the Western Conference with 92 points. They are four points behind the fifth-place Predators and are five points ahead of seventh-place Dallas.

Unlike in the NCAA tournament or the NBA playoffs, the NHL reseeds after each round. What that means is the top seed will play the lowest remaining seed in the second round.

Currently, the Blues are in first. If they win, and Dallas were to upset Vancouver, then St. Louis would play Dallas in the second round.

Therefore, seeding is always very important in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Here, I'll try to look ahead at where each team might get seeded and who their opponents might be. If you disagree about a certain matchup, sound off below, and let me know why.
