Four teams the Chicago Blackhawks could end up playing in the playoffs
By Jimmy Lynch
Potential Opponent Three: The Edmonton Oilers
The Blackhawks and Oilers have not had a rivalry in a long time. Maybe meeting in the first round of the playoffs can start to reignite that flame. Back during the Oilers Wayne Gretzky days, the Blackhawks were always stopped by the Oilers in the playoffs, maybe we can return the favor and end a great Oilers season.
Edmonton has been led by two players this season, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Draisaitl has more points this season than the great McDavid, 83 to 79. While McDavid and Draisaitl have been great I do think the Blackhawks might have a little more depth than the Oilers.
Chicago has three good offensive lines when they are playing their best, having something like that will only help them make the playoffs and last a few games in a playoff series. Chicago and Edmonton would be a great series between two very historic franchises, whether or not it happens falls on whether the Oilers can take the Pacific and whether the Blackhawks can hold a wildcard spot!
