No. 5: Chicago Blackhawks

Previous: No. 6

Record: 30-14-5 (65 points)

A cushy stretch of games still hasn’t seen great play from the Blackhawks, but good enough play to pile up a three-game win streak, a 7-3-0 mark in the last 10 games and a pace-keeping rate with Minnesota. Marcus Kruger may return tonight, as he was activated off injured reserve and Dennis Rasmussen is dealing with an illness.
