The Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks will meet in the postseason for the first time when puck drops on Game 1 of the Western Conference Final this afternoon.

The Ducks have not been to the conference finals since winning the franchise’s first Stanley Cup in 2007.

Puck drop this afternoon is at 3 p.m. ET. You can watch the game on NBC and also by following NBC’s Live Stream via the link below:
