The Chicago Blackhawks have been tested in their most recent contests, and yet the ‘Hawks still find themselves in the top tier of our NHL power rankings

The Chicago Blackhawks have a few things to tighten up on as the regular season ends, especially after a complete disaster against the Florida Panthers. With the injury to Artem Anisimov being a huge problem for the ‘Hawks, the team must focus on finishing the season strong but prepare even more for another shot at the Stanley Cup.

Last week, we saw the Chicago Blackhawks rise to the top of our NHL power rankings after a dominant February and March.
