Two of the Blackhawks Central Division rivals are still alive in the playoffs as the Nashville Predators take on the Phoenix Coyotes and the St. Louis Blues battle the Los Angeles Kings. Will they meet in the conference finals for the right to play for a Stanley Cup?

Strong goaltending will be the theme as each of the remaining teams has at least one goalie ranking among the league-leaders in wins, save percentage and goals-against average. The Blackhawks know this firsthand after facing Pekka Rinne six times, the combination of Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott in St. Louis, Mike Smith last round and Jonathan Quick (two shutouts vs. Chicago this season).

Vote on the poll and tell us which teams will meet in the Western Conference Finals.
