The Blackhawks are the fourth-seed in the Western Conference, marking the first time since the first round of the 1996 Stanley Cup Playoffs (also against Calgary) the team has home-ice advantage in a postseason series. Chicago swept the regular-season series against Calgary, winning all four games in regulation, while holding a 19-7 scoring advantage. The Blackhawks have faced the Flames three times before the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which includes posting a 4-games-to-0 series sweep in the 1996 Western Conference Quarterfinals. Calgary defeated Chicago, 3-games-to-0, in the 1981 Preliminary Round and notched a 4-games-to-1 series win in the 1989 Campbell Conference Finals.
