Hawks now play waiting game in Chicago

by Dan Rosen / NHL.com
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.
