After a couple of days off for travel and rest, the Western Conference Finals move to Chicago for Game 3 on Friday night.
The San Jose Sharks and Chicago Blackhawks take the ice at the United Center before what's sure to be a raucous sellout crowd after the Hawks won the first two games in San Jose. The game starts at 8 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN and RDS in Canada.
The Eastern Conference Final resumes Saturday afternoon in Montreal, with the Canadiens hosting Philadelphia at 3 p.m. ET in a game that can be seen on NBC in the United States and CBC and RDS in Canada. Montreal trails 2-1 in the series after winning 5-1 on Thursday night.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
