Finally, yes finally the Western Conference schedule was released tonight by the NHL. They are really stuck in the old days having to wait until every series is over before releasing the next series schedules.
The Chicago Blackhawks now take on the Anaheim Ducks and we know the time and place and because the Honda Center is booked on Saturday the worst kept secret in the NHL today is that the Blackhawks will be in Anaheim Sunday afternoon which is really poor by the NHL in my mind. Both teams have had an extended break because they took care of their business quickly in the 2nd round, and their reward is an afternoon tilt which is outside of a normal NHL players routine which means Game #1 could be a crapshoot from a good game or a penalty filled bad game.
Here is the schedule for the Western Conference Finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Anaheim Ducks
Game #1 Chicago Blackhawks vs Anaheim Ducks 2pm Sunday May 17th from the Honda Center.
Game #2 Chicago Blackhawks vs Anaheim Ducks 8pm Tuesday May 19th from the Honda Center.
Game #3 Anaheim Ducks vs Chicago Blackhawks 7pm Thursday May 21st from the United Center.
Game #4 Anaheim Ducks Vs Chicago Blackhawks 7pm Saturday May 23rd from the United Center.
Game #5 Chicago Blackhawks vs Anaheim Ducks 8pm Monday May 25th from the Honda Center.
Game #6 Anaheim Ducks vs Chicago Blackhawks 7pm Wednesday May 27th from the United Center.
Game #7 Chicago Blackhawks vs Anaheim Ducks 7pm Friday May 28th from the Honda Center.

On Twitter this past week I asked for your predictions and got quite a few replies and here are some of them.
The Chicago Blackhawks are heading to the Western Conference Finals for the 5th time in 7 seasons and it will be another test from a team from Southern California so even though it’s not the LA Kings it still feels very familiar!
