The Chicago Blackhawks rested over the weekend before finding out they will face the Anaheim Ducks, who eliminated the Calgary Flames in a 3-2 overtime victory, in the Western Conference Final. Dates and times have yet to be determined.

With Hawks defenseman Michal Rozsival out for the remainder of the postseason, the team turned to David Rundblad during Sunday's morning skate to fill his role.

Eight games down, eight to go for the Hawks.
