Welp. That didn't go well. The Blackhawks were truly outmatched this weekend by the Colorado Avalanche. They were outscored 12-5 and fall to dead last in the Central Division with 25 points (10-11-5). They are only 1 point out of last in all of the Western Conference. Before I touch on the Blackhawks, their upcoming schedule and the future of this season, I want to say a couple of things about the Avalanche.
The Blackhawks lose once again. Stop me if you've heard this before. Another stinker game that was overshadowed by the Marc Crawford news, as well as the fact the Hawks didn't have enough players to fill an actual lineup. Here are a few updates + a Rockford IceHogs check in.
The good news is that the Blackhawks are getting healthier. The bad news is the Hawks are still without Duncan Keith and Andrew Shaw. The real news is that even with a roster that was 100% healthy, the Hawks were an inconsistent squad. Not to pick on just one guy because there are many that I could hone in on, but it's been 27 games for the Captain and there's not much to show for it.
