Blackhawks playoff picture: April 1
Here's a look at the Blackhawks' playoff chances heading into Wednesday's games.
The Chicago Blackhawks have less than two weeks 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.
The Nashville Predators rallied to send a game to overtime, but fell 5-4 to the Vancouver Canucks in a shootout at home. It was a sloppy game by Nashville, including Pekka Rinne giving up two goals in the second and third period four minutes apart. The New York Rangers also defeated the Winnipeg Jets, 3-2.
