Are the Chicago Blackhawks actually about to make the Play offs?



The last post I wrote about Chicago's struggles was a mere three weeks ago - Where is it all going wrong for the Blackhawks? - but it's not really relevant today at all.

Granted it's not a complete 360 turn around and I'm certainly not trying to gloss over the fact that we're still bottom of the league for our penalty kill, still giving away a heck of a lot of pucks and still rock bottom of the good ol Central Division, BUT we've been playing so much better recently, we've been on an seven game winning streak (which only ended recently in Boston and we picked right back up on Thursday night against the Devils) and most importantly - we're just 6 points out of a play off spot. SIX.

For those of us Hawks fans who mentally checked out of this season long ago - isn't that just an eye opener and a half!

Granted the Western Conference is a messy old mind fuck these days and being six points out of a play off spot aint that much of an achievement when you look at the dire state of teams in the West this year but still. STILL. The thought of a play off spot for the Blackhawks was so incredibly far fetched this time last month that the fact that it's suddenly in our grasp is just damn exhilarating.

Will I still be feeling this excited and somewhat optimistic by this time next month? Who freaking knows. But by god, I hope so.

(and now i'll leave you with some of my favourite memes from this week. I dont know who creates these but they're so spot on they've had me laughing out loud!)
