Chicago Blackhawks Still in Contention After OT Loss

With three games remaining, the Hawks barely hang on to 8th in the Western Conference, only two points ahead of 9th place Calgary.

Thirty-seven seconds into OT, Hawks’ Captain, Jonathon Toews, gets called for a tripping penalty on rookie defenseman, Subban, and the Canadiens went on a 4-on-3 advantage. Incidentally, 33 seconds later, Subban scores the game winning power play OT goal to help the Canadiens clinch their playoff spot.

The Hawks may still be in contention but are skating on very thin ice.
