Yay! Blackhawks draw Wild instead of Avalanche in Round 2

The Blackhawks will not only have the home ice advantage in Round Two of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but will be playing the lesser of two possible opponents.

The Minnesota Wild ousted the division champ Colorado Avalanche 5-4 last night.

The Hawks should get a bit of a rest before having to face Los Angeles or Anaheim in the next round.

Hawks in five games.
