Blues and Blackhawks in the Western Conference finals?

Asked by slowturning

It would certainly be an entertaining match up. The two teams historically don’t like each other - the Blues are the Blackhawks’ longest rivalry after the Red Wings - and the teams play two very distinct styles (Blues more physical; Blackhawks more finesse). It wouldn’t be my choice of a first-round match up, but there’s a likelihood that it could happen, and if it did, I could see it going to 6 or 7 games.
