The Chicago Blackhawks and the rest of the NHL were forced to suspend the regular season for the time being, so how does that affect the team?
The Chicago Blackhawks and the rest of the National Hockey League have suspended play due to the worldwide pandemic that is Coronavirus. It is a virus that has already affected players in the National Basketball Association which caused them to cancel their season. The NHL has followed suit until further notice. That hits every fan of every team in different ways and the Blackhawks are no different.
If the NHL decides to end the regular season and just move to the playoffs, the Blackhawks would obviously be out by six points. 72 points in 70 games played would go down as a less than the ideal season, but no matter what happens we will probably be saying that anyway. They still had some good performances by certain individuals but it ultimately wasn’t enough to get it done.
