The Blackhawks haven't been playing their best hockey as of late, but last night they got it done against the Winnipeg Jets. The Hawks are only 4-5-1 in their last 10 but we all know that the Hawks know what is important and that is the playoffs. You want to go into the playoffs on a high, but the Hawks know how to get it done.
Patrick Kane scored his 40th goal of the season for the 1st time in his amazing career and Artemi Panarin scored two more goals to increase his already impressive goal total to 27. Panarin also got the assist on Seabrook's winning goal in OT. Seabrook and Panarin went in on a 2 on 1 and as Panarin drew the defender to him, he slid it over to Seabrook who fired it past Ondrej Pavelec who really didn't have much of a chance.
Coasting into the playoffs is not what you typically want to do. Also finding out your best defenseman will miss the next 6 games isn't good either. However, I really doubt most of us are worried. Let's go Hawks!
