The Detroit Red Wings' shocking upset of the Anaheim Ducks in Game 7 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series on Sunday night earned the Red Wings the "privilege" of playing the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks in an Original 6 showdown.
In the other series, the fifth-seeded Los Angeles Kings earned home-ice advantage in its series against the San Jose Sharks, the sixth-seed, in the first round. San Jose has not played since May 7, the night it finished a four-game sweep of the favored Vancouver Canucks. The Kings, meanwhile, have not played since beating the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 on May 10.
Chicago has been idle since finishing a five-game ouster of the Minnesota Wild on May 9.
The League has yet to announce a schedule for the Western Conference Semifinal round.
