The Chicago Blackhawks are going to the playoffs if hockey comes back which is incredibly exciting despite the tough season that they have had.
Hockey is back (almost). The Chicago Blackhawks have officially been named as the 12th seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket as the NHL Return to Play committee has come up with a format that is about as fair of a format as you can make it. They are going to be in and matched up against the Edmonton Oilers for this. Whether they have a chance to win remains to be seen but you never know.
There are certain rules that have been announced today by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and we will still wait for other things to become more clear. The top four teams in each conference based on regular-season points percentage will play a round-robin tournament to determine the seeding of those teams. The other playoff teams will play in a best of five play-in series.
