The Red Wings are set to move to the Eastern Conference next season, meaning this could be the last time these Original Six rivals meet in the postseason for a very long time. The Blackhawks hold an 8-7 edge over the Red Wings in playoff series wins.
The seventh-seeded Red Wings come in as heavy underdogs in this series, having barely beaten the Anaheim Ducks in seven games. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, had little trouble defeating the Minnesota Wild in five games.
Will the Red Wings pull off another upset, or will the Blackhawks move one step closer to their second Stanley Cup in four years?
