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 downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
