The Chicago Blackhawks have eight games left in the regular-season and are fighting for a playoff berth. Each day until the end of the regular-season, we'll breakdown their chances at a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Wednesday's results

Both games featured only Eastern Conference teams, so there was no change in the Western Conference race.

Thursday's scoreboard watch

The Hawks are idle until Saturday, Chicago has a 2.9 percent chance of winning the division, according to hockeyreference.com, after a 6-2 loss to Dallas on Tuesday. They also are four points back of second-place St. Louis and Nashville is just four points back in fourth. Dallas visits Arizona, while St. Louis is idle. Nashville hosts Vancouver.
