It hasn’t been the best of seasons for the Chicago Blackhawks. The team is coming off a stretch where it lost eight straight games — going 0-7-1 in the process. Chicago got some good vibes back with a 7-1 drubbing over the Washington Capitals on Saturday, but they still have a lot of ground to make up in the standings. They currently sit 13 points behind the Minnesota Wild. Chicago has played 60 games so time is very much running out if they want to make a push.
We talked with forward Ryan Hartman about the state of the team, and what it needs to do to make some noise the rest of the way.
