2021 was a tough calendar year for the Chicago Blackhawks. They were hoping that they could ring in the new year with a win over the Nashville Predators but things didn’t go their way here. The final score of 6-1 to kick off the year isn’t a good sight for Chicago Blackhawks fans.
The team needs to win at close to (or maybe even higher than) a .700 percent clip the rest of the way in order to make it to the postseason. That is clearly not going to happen. They would be lucky to have a .500 points percentage the rest of the way. This game on New Years Day was a disaster of a start.
