Blackhawks Tue May 25 2010

Opponent, schedule set for Hawks

Thanks to their 4-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens last night, the Philadelphia Flyers advanced to the Stanley Cup finals and the waiting Chicago Blackhawks. Philly entered the postseason as a 7-seed thanks to a shootout victory on the final day of the regular season. After dispatching the New Jersey Devils in the first round, they became only the 3rd NHL team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit to beat the Boston Bruins in 7 games, before eliminating Montreal in 5.

Philadelphia was considered a top team in the East before staggering out of the gate and to the bottom of the conference, before barely clawing their way back into the postseason. In the one meeting between the Hawks and Flyers March 13, Philly scored two goals in the final 2:04, including Chris Pronger's game winner with 2.1 seconds left, to shock the Blackhawks 3-2.

A more indepth preview of the Stanley Cup Finals and what Hawks fans can expect is coming later, but in the meantime, the schedule of games is as follows (all times Central):

Game 1 Saturday, May 29 at Chicago 7 p.m. NBC

Game 2 Monday, May 31 at Chicago 7 p.m. NBC
