The Chicago Blackhawks are ready to move onto the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
After finishing off the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 of the series Sunday, the Blackhawks have had time to rest, recover and prepare for their next opponent (either the Minnesota Wild of Colorado Avalanche).
The first round saw Joel Quenneville's team come back from an 0-2 deficit following two overtime losses in St. Louis. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were key players in the winning effort—no surprise to any hockey fans—and Corey Crawford played quite well after an ordinary start.
There weren't a lot of huge surprises in the opening round, but there were several worth mentioning.
