If the wings can minimize their mistakes, I don't see why they can't win this series. I for one am happy the wings don't have to deal with the ducks forecheck anymore. 3/4 of the wing's mistakes last series were caused by the heavy pressure they applied.

I think the Wings have got a shot. That said, I'm also in the fortunate position of being satisfied with the season already as of tonight. I'll enjoy it either way.

Me too. And It's the playoffs, anything can happen. So I pick Wings in 6 and enjoy the ride whatever happens.

I do have to say this will probably be a less stressful series.  Going into it we are expecting the worst and the Wings have overcome great odds to get here.  It's all pretty much icing on the cake now and whatever happens will either be what we thought or elated to probably epic levels of homerism.

I love that we get to see this series.  We will certainly see some awesome hockey with these two teams facing off, is Tatar going to be seen at all this post season?  We could use his young scoring touch here

All the pressure (in the world) is on the 'hawks.

 

 

Spot on.The Hawks,#1 seed with stacked team play against #7 seed arch rival,with weakest team in years having the home ice advantage.

 

They are good,but they are flash and bones as well so let's take advantage on huge pressure they're under :)

Jimmy will have to outplay Crawford like he did Hiller.

 

It's possible although I voted the Hawks in 6.

 

Prove me wrong please Wings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why do people keep saying the wings can't match the hawks offensive depth? They keep going back to the season series record against the wings, but I am guessing they did not watch those games. The only lopsided one was that 7-1 game on Easter Sunday.

The Blackhawks don't scare me.  I think we could take them under most circumstances, but the deck is severely stacked against us considering how the first round went for both teams.  Chicago had virtually no travel, won in 5 games and is going to be well rested.  Oh yeah, they have home ice and the best record in the league too.  Meanwhile, we've been flying back and forth across the country over and over again in a hard fought, OT filled, 7 game series against the Ducks.  

 

It would make my season if we knocked out the Hawks, but I have a hard time seeing it happen.

 

The ridiculous travel's definitely an unequivocal negative. But the cruising-to-victory thing? If I'm "Coach Q," I'm very pleased - and very worried. Because, truth is, he really doesn't know what kind of team he's got. No one does. Not even the team itself. Because, truth is, this 'hawks team has faced zero adversity this season.

If Zetterberg and Datsyuk can match up to Kane and Toews respectively, and if Howard stays as strong as he has, the series is Detroits.

Hawks take this one pretty easily in 5 games.

 

You said the Ducks had the Red Wings "done" after Game 5, too. 

 

I agree the Hawks will win, but it won't be easy.

And the Wings aren't on the West coast for this one, we can all get back to our normal sleep patterns :-)

We are going to have to somehow shutdown Sharp and Hossa as we did Perry in the Ducks series.

The team already overarchieved, so let's just enjoy the ride whatever happens happens.

I don't think you can really look at what happened vs the hawks and wings in the regular season and base anything on what's going to happen in the playoffs.  I voted hawks in 6 being from chicago and a hawks fan but I will be honest and say that I'm pretty nervous (and excited) about this series.  I would never not give the wings the credit they are due or take for granted the team they have.  The wings have overcome a lot to get where they are and they are hungry!  I'll be cheering for the hawks but either way it's going to be a good series and a fun one to watch!

The hockey gods had this series scheduled as soon as the re-alignment was finalized. I have a feeling the wings take game one behind a sluggish start by Chicago and game 7 intensity by the winged wheel. Chicago has been sitting around. Detroit gets a nice little rest and they're right back to work.

2 Things scare me about this Blackhawks team

 

1)  Their second line of Sharp-Handzus-Kane against Smith-Quincey or Kindl-Colo.  Babcock has to separate Pav and Hank to counter their 1-2 punch IMO.

 

2)  The lack of Brian Campbell on the blueline.  He was one of our best players in the '09 series, we could really do with him again.

 

I sure won't miss that Anaheim forecheck though!


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
