First Round Playoff Dates Announced

matchup

When Minnesota lost 4-2 to St. Louis yesterday, it officially setup the first round playoff match-ups. Blues vs. Wild, Ducks vs. Jets, Canucks vs. Flames, and Predators vs. Blackhawks. Yes, the unfortunate rift between both organizations is about to come to a head as the dates have also been released:

Wednesday, April 15th – Chicago, 7:30PM
Friday, April 17th – Chicago, 8:30PM
Sunday, April 19th @ Chicago, 2PM
Tuesday, April 21st @ Chicago, 8:30PM
Thursday, April 23rd – Chicago, TBD
Saturday, April 25th @ Chicago, TBD
Monday, April 27th – Chicago, TBD

I personally had my fingers crossed that the Predators would start Thursday, rather than Wednesday, as the Nashville Sounds have their home opener on Friday night in their brand new stadium. No surprise the sports in my life are working against me, but I do know quite a few people who have already bought tickets to both events. Don’t worry – you’ll be able to sell either one just fine.

Whether you are dreading Nashville’s match-up or you are playing with what hope you have left, playoff hockey is an experience all its own and it shall prove entertaining nonetheless.
