The Chicago Blackhawks will face three of four possible opponents if they make it to the first round.
The Chicago Blackhawks finally played in their qualifying game against the Edmonton Oilers. They did a good job (for the most part) containing Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl at even strength. The Edmonton duo was awesome on the power play but it wasn’t good enough to outscore Chicago as they ended up taking a 6-4 win. The Oilers are the better team but the Blackhawks are absolutely able to pull off an upset if they keep playing like that.
