The Chicago Blackhawks had a NHL Playoff year in the 2016-17 season. They finished the season with a 50-23-9 record, however, lost to the Nashville Predators in the first round of the NHL Playoffs. In the 2017-18 NHL season, the Blackhawks are looking to get back to the Stanley Cup and regain that dominance again.
Founded in 1926, the Chicago Blackhawks are a professional ice hockey (NHL) team based in Chicago, IL and play their home games at the United Center. The Blackhawks compete in the Central Division of the Western Conference against teams like Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues, and Winnipeg Jets.
