It’s up to the Chicago Blackhawks players if they are going to make the playoffs or not, and with their inconsistencies, they appear a bubble team in our latest NHL power rankings

The hot and cold Chicago Blackhawks continued being inconsistent last week.  After winning five games in a row, they lost three and have since lost four of their last five.  Corey Crawford was placed on injured reserve for an upper-body injury, and they sure miss his services. So what does it mean for this week’s NHL power rankings?

Now that we’re in 2018, people are starting to examine if the ‘Hawks have enough to make a run come April.  It’s understandable that with the star power of the Blackhawks that they could do some damage, but those same top players have been underperforming all season.
