CHICAGO — Dynasty on ice?
That might be in the making for the Blackhawks, who advanced to the Western Conference finals for the fourth time in six years after beating the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Patrick Kane's overtime goal on Tuesday in St. Paul.
The Hawks also reached the NHL's version of the Final Four in 2009 before losing to Detroit in five games, and in 2010 and 2013 on their way to Stanley Cup titles.
Chicago will face the winner of the Los Angeles Kings-Anaheim Ducks series, which continues Wednesday in L.A. The Ducks lead that series three games to two.
"It's going to be a tough matchup whoever we're against," Kane told CNBC after the win.
Corey Crawford made 34 saves, while Kris Versteeg had the Hawks' other goal.
