NHL West Finals: Chicago Blackhawks vs. San Jose Sharks Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Blackhawks vs. Sharks Live Stream: The Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks, the top two seeds in the West, will battle it out at HP Pavilion this afternoon for Game 1 of the NHL Western Conference Finals.
These two teams have never met before in the playoffs, and both took different paths to arrive at this point. The Sharks got here by defeating the Colorado Avalanche in six games in the first round and the Detroit Red Wings in the conference semifinals. The Blackawks are in the final four for the second straight season after beating both the Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks in six games.
The Hawks haven’t been to the Stanley Cup Finals since being swept by Pittsburgh in 1992, while the Sharks’ only other appearance in the West championship was a six-game loss to Calgary in 2004. The California side will be the host for Games 1 and 2 because they edged Chicago by a single point atop the standings.
Games 3 and 4 will be held at the United Center. If necessary, the Sharks would host Game 5, the Blackhawks would host Game 6, and San Jose would host Game 7.
The match kicks-off at 3:00 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: The Blackhawks defeated the Sharks 2-1 in the opening game of the Western Conference finals on Dustin Byfuglien’s goal with 6:45 remaining.
