The Blackhawks have known they’ll face the Minnesota Wild in their second-round playoff series since Sunday afternoon. Now they know when, too.

Much like his Blackhawks teammates, Andrew Desjardins is doing everything to prepare for the team’s second-round series against the Minnesota Wild, which begins at some point later this week.
