DENVER — Well, it was looking like the Blackhawks could finish this regular season with a victory.
The Blackhawks left St. Louis on Thursday night with one certainty regarding the upcoming postseason: They wouldn’t be starting it at the United Center.
Eighty-one down, one to go: the regular season is just about over, and the Blackhawks aren’t wrapping it up as successfully and they’d like.
There are things you come to expect when the Blackhawks and Blues play. You will see your share of hits. You will see strong defense. And you probably won’t see a whole lot of goals.
