Well, at least we now know who the Blackhawks are facing in the playoffs.

With the Phoenix Coyotes‘ regulation win over the Minnesota Wild, they have clinched the Pacific Division championship and the third playoff seed. This sets up the first ever postseason playoff series between the Blackhawks and the Coyotes/Jets.

During the regular season, the Blackhawks went 1-2-1 against the Coyotes… but, as we all know, regular season stats go out the window as soon as the first playoff game starts.

The schedule for the first round of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs will be announced tomorrow at 12pm CDT on NHL Network.
