NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Colorado Avalanche Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks gave up three power-play goals to the Colorado Avalanche in a 5-0 loss Friday at Pepsi Center in Denver.

Chicago is in 25th place in the league standings at 74 points, which gives them a 7.5 percent odds at the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The Hawks are off until Wednesday, when they host the St. Louis Blues.
