Western Conference Finals
(1) San Jose Sharks v. (2) Chicago Blackhawks
I was impressed with how handily the Sharks conquered the Red Wings. I definitely didn't think the Sharks were going to win that series and I was a little sad that Detroit lost.

I was worried about the 'Hawks after their Game 1 outing against the Canucks. They looked terrible in that game, but thankfully quickly turned things around to end Vancouver's bid for hockey glory. I think this series will be pretty even and while I don't care much for Chicago sports teams, I would much rather root for the Blackhawks and see them advance then watch the Sharks play for the Cup.
Prediction: Chicago in 7
