The Anaheim Ducks finished off San Jose Sharks last night for a 4-2 series win and a trip to the second round of the playoffs. Detroit, who's been idle since last Thursday's sweep of the Blue Jackets, finally knows it opponent for the next round. The 8th seeded Ducks come to Hockeytown with intentions of upsetting another top seed while Detroit looks to keep the Cup in Hockeytown.
In the other series out West, the Blackhawks have doused the Flames with a 4-2 series win and a trip to the Northwest to take on the Vancouver Canucks.
In the East, there are two game 7s tonight which should make for some interesting hockey. The Caps have battled back from a 3-1 hole while the Devils and Canes are trading wins.
By tomorrow, the rest of the second round series matchups will be set and we will begin to bring you some previews, analysis, and predictions.
