The Chicago Blackhawks would need Corey Crawford to stand on his head in order to win a playoff series so can he do that for them?
The Chicago Blackhawks are one of those teams that many people believe don’t deserve to make the playoffs. They ended the season at 32-30-8 for 72 points. They were in the last place of the Central Division, trailing the Minnesota Wild by five points. With that, every team in the Central is in the playoffs with this 24 team format. They are the only division that can say that in these weird times.
So with that said, can the Blackhawks pull an upset and win the first series? It would be a five-game play-in series with the Edmonton Oilers who were a significantly better team in the regular season. In order for Chicago to do this, they would need Corey Crawford to be as good as he has been in the past during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
