The Blackhawks have three games left in the 82 game schedule before the season ends and the real season begins! The Blackhawks were minus their two biggest superstar last week and ended on a three game winning streak that being said we all are looking forward to seeing Kane and Toews back on the ice sooner than later.

The week starts out Wednesday night and the final home regular season game for the Hawks against original 6 team  the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens have clinched a playoff spot and are looking to secure home ice against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs.  The Blackhawks will be hoping to send the crowd home happy one last time before the playoffs start.

The Hawks head to the nation’s Capital on Friday night to and face the Caps and they could be on death watch for the playoffs. As of Sunday night they are 4 points out of the last playoff spot and more than likely won’t be participating in the postseason.  The Capitals probably will be looking for a new coach this off-season after another disappointing season.

The season ends Saturday night in Smashville. Thankfully the Predators aren’t in the playoffs because they have the Hawks number and they are horrible to watch. The Predators game will be the final edition of the Keep out the Red campaign so there is that going for all the Hawks fans that travel to Nashville.

Which game are you looking forward to the most?
