It appears as though the Chicago Blackhawks are peaking at just the right time.
Chicago's 2-1 overtime win over the Vancouver Canucks on Andrew Shaw's game-winning goal tonight marked their fifth win in a row, improving their record to 8-1-1 in their last ten games.
With the victory, the Blackhawks are now tied in points with Nashville for fifth place in the Western Conference playoff race, though the Predators have one more "Regulation Plus Overtime Wins" as the tie-breaker. However, the Blackhawks are currently only one point behind Detroit, but they would need two points on Sunday against Nashville and a Red Wings loss on Saturday to claim fourth place.
