The Chicago Blackhawks are watching the playoffs at home again. They haven’t won a playoff series since 2015 which means they are doing a great job wasting the primes of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Those two were still getting better when they won the three Stanley Cups but the team hasn’t been able to put it together once they signed their long-term deals. The current NHL playoffs should be teaching Stan Bowman a lesson about the future.
The Chicago Blackhawks should be going to school on the 2021 NHL Semi-Final.
Both series are tied at two games apiece. It is going to be an exciting time until the very end. Each one has the feel of a grueling seven-game series to decide who makes it to the Stanley Cup Final. It is good to see some great hockey be played with four teams that believe they have what it takes to win it all.
