The Chicago Blackhawks have seven 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.
Chicago defeated Calgary 4-1, but Dallas and St. Louis also won so the Hawks did not gain any ground in the standings. Nashville also topped Columbus to stay within two points of Chicago. Dallas victory over San Jose kept the Sharks from clinching a playoff spot.
Sunday's scoreboard watch
Chicago visits Vancouver for the second half of a back-to-back. It's the only game featuring Western Conference teams, so two points for the Hawks would see them move within four points of St. Louis and Dallas. With at least one point, the Hawks would clinch a playoff spot.
