On to the Conference Finals!

I, for one, am stunned by the ease with which my Blackhawks disposed of a very good Minnesota Wild team in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Last night's 4-3 victory completed a sweep of the team whose goalie was previously the hottest goalie in the playoffs.

There are many things the Hawks did right in this series that they didn't do against Nashville. They will have to do them again- and in spades- against the Ducks and the Rangers, whom I suspect the Hawks will have to vanquish in order to bring Lord Staley's mug back to its rightful home in the United Center.

Neither will be easy to beat, no matter how hard the Good Guys play.

In the meantime, the Hawks get a rest. Hope they aren't rusty when the Anaheim series opens.
