The Chicago Blackhawks will look to maintain the momentum from their historic regular season when they face the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference quarterfinals beginning Tuesday night at the United Center.

The NHL released the schedule Sunday night and the Hawks, who have home-ice advantage during the seven-game series, will take on the Wild at 7 p.m. in Game 1. Game 2 will be Friday night at the UC before the series shifts to St. Paul, Minn.

Game 3 at Excel Energy Center will be next Sunday at 2 p.m. and Game 4 will be May 7 at 8:30 p.m. If necessary, Game 5 will be at UC on May 9, Game 6 in Minnesota on May 11 and Game 7 on May 12 in Chcago.

After rolling to the top seed with a league-best 36-7-5 record, the Hawks will be looking to erase the memories of consecutive first-round departures at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks and Phoenix Coyotes, respectively.
