It is a National Football League Sunday and the Chicago Bears are going to have a game against the New York Jets. Neither team is likely to have their young exciting quarterback under center so that changes things but it will still be fun. Luckily, the Chicago Blackhawks also still play.
They are going to host the Winnipeg Jets for some Sunday night hockey. That is a tough draw for Chicago as they will face this Jets team when they are 12-6-1. As of right now, they are one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
They are right there with the Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars for the lead in the Central Division. Not many thought they would even be a playoff team this year but they certainly have looked like one.
Winnipeg presents a challenge because they have a lot of players that are close to being a point per game to go with some good goaltending. It is going to be a tough game for the Chicago Blackhawks as they try to take them down.
The Chicago Blackhawks are going to have a hard time with the Winnipeg Jets.
The Hawks aren’t feeling very good about themselves lately either which never makes things easy. They haven’t won since November 12th which is a skid of 0-5-1. They have only won two times in the month of November after a hot start to the year. This is truly a bad team.
They have only scored 12 goals over those six games which is obviously not going to get it done. Stopping this Winnipeg offense will surely be hard for them.
It doesn’t get any easier for them after this either with the likes of the Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, and New Jersey Devils following that. All of those teams have their eyes on the Stanley Cup.
This season is not going to be easy for Chicago Blackhawks fans. There is a good chance that they are in a very bad spot by the time the season ends. However, that could lead to a draft lottery win that lands them a potentially generational player. That’s not the worst thing ever.
Every now and again they will win a game which is good so that they still have some respect for themselves but don’t necessarily count on it to happen often enough to be happy. Rebuilding isn’t fun but it could lead to a lot of it.
