Red Wings to Open Against Blackhawks on Wednesday


The National Hockey League officially announced the schedule for the Western Conference Semifinal playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

The Central Division rivals will meet in Game One in Chicago on Wednesday night.

Games will take place every-other day, with the exception of a two-day break between Game One and Game Two and again between Game Three and Game Four, meaning that the Red Wings will have more rest days in their series with Chicago than they did in their first-round matchup with the Anaheim Ducks.

The full series schedule is as follows:
