No. 4: Chicago Blackhawks
Season Record: 18-8-4
Even while missing top players in Jonathan Toews, Corey Crawford, and Brent Seabrook, the Hawks are finding a way to get it done. Marian Hossa scored his 15th goal of the season Sunday night, and back-up goaltender Scott Darling has really stepped up in net. Combine this with the youngsters getting comfortable and starting to contribute as well, and you have a recipe for success.
The Hawks currently lead the Central Division with 38 points, and their stars all appear to be close to getting back on the ice soon. This is a good thing, as they have a tough upcoming schedule ahead this week.
