After seizing a 4-3 Game 6 victory, the Chicago Blackhawks have pushed the Detroit Red Wings to a decisive Game 7. After finding themselves down 3-1 in a series some thought they would dominate, the Presidents' Trophy-winning 'Hawks fought back with two gutsy wins over their longtime Central Division foes.
And then there was one.
One game to decide this farewell series between two teams that have pushed each other for Western Conference supremacy over the last decade. One game for the little-brother Blackhawks to show that they've finally grown out of their big brother's long shadow.
One game to decide them all—well, at least to decide who is going to the Western Conference Finals.
If you know someone that isn't a hockey fan and have been looking for a way to introduce them, invite them over for pizza on May 29 and casually put this game on in the background. They'll be hooked in no time.
Puck drop is set for 8 p.m. ET and can be viewed on NBCSN in the United States.
