In Friday’s game four, the Chicago Blackhawks have a chance to eliminate the Edmonton Oilers.
The Chicago Blackhawks were very lucky to be given a second life when the NHL announced its return to play format. They came in against the Edmonton Oilers as huge underdogs and now they have a chance to eliminate them. They came back in game three from a 3-2 deficit to win the game by a final score of 4-3. They tied the game with under six minutes left in regulation before Jonathan Toews scored the go-ahead goal with just over a minute left.
Now on Friday, they will face the toughest test of them all. They have to do what they need to do to extinguish the Oilers from the playoff bubble. The Oilers are certainly going to come out flying in this game so the Blackhawks need to have their best game of the series in order to win. They probably don’t want to play a game five against the Oilers as the “road team”.
