Chicago Blackhawks relish Original Six matchup with Detroit Red Wings

Well the Detroit Red Wings sealed up their series last night with Anaheim meaning the Hawks will face longtime nemesis and certainly the best team in the NHL along with being the defending champs in the conference finals starting Sunday Night, and the city of Chicago now turns into :

- chicagotribune.com: "Late in the Blackhawks' victory over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals Monday night, fans at the United Center started a derisive chant about the Detroit Red Wings.

They are going to get their chance to continue it as the Wings advanced to the conference finals with a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 7 of their semifinal series Thursday night.

Detroit's victory set up an Original Six matchup against the well-rested Hawks in the conference finals beginning this weekend at Joe Louis Arena. The series will be a rematch of the last time the Hawks reached the third round in 1995, when the Wings advanced to the Stanley Cup finals four games to one.

'Detroit is arguably the best team in the league,' Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. 'Coming off winning the Cup they know what it's like to win and play in big games. They have several high-end offensive guys. They have maybe the best player in the league in [ Nicklas] Lidstrom on the back end. They're strong and very explosive. Seems like every game we played them this year there were a lot of goals scored. There's a lot to be concerned with.'" continued
