Hawks now play waiting game in Chicago
The end has come and the Blackhawks need help.
 
Detroit edged them 4-3 here at United Center, taking Chicago's playoff fate out of its own hands. NOw it's up to Dallas.
 
If the Stars beat the Wild tonight in regulation or overtime they will clinch the eighth seed in the playoffs. If that game goes to a shootout or if the Wild beat the Stars, the Blackhawks will clinch.
 
All the Hawks can do now is watch.
Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
