Playoff Beard Day 7
|Crazy Uncle Dave "Pretend" voics of the Black Hawks dispenses his Hawks Nuggets|
Hawks Nugget1 : On this day in 1972 Bobby Hull scored his 604th goal as a blackhawk
Hawks Nugget 2 : Thanks to NHL tie breaking procedures the Hawks only need 1 point to stay out of the 1st wild card spot now held by the Nashville Predators. The only way the Preds can overtake the Hawks for the 3rd spot in the central is if they win their remaining 3 games in regulation and the Hawks drop their last 4 in regulation. The Hawks cannot overtake Dallas (the best they could do is lose the tie breaker) for 1st in the Central but can still catch St. Louis for 2nd in the Central.
