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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
